Happy Birthday! Live a long time and with great joy. Sixty is no age at all.

To keep learning; here’s joy in that. Thanks for the poem. I’d have read it differently, but it’s a nice listen and a nice gift to give us on your birthday.

Happy birthday, Peter. And a very Merry Christmas to you and yours. I should hope to live as long, as well and as wisely.

Happy Birthday Professor. May you continue to teach boys to be men for many years; vigilant and virtuous. In addition to the wisdom of the past. Merry Christmas and God bless you and your family, and the Ashbrook Center as well.

Happy (belated) Birthday Peter, and Merry Christmas to all.
