On the importance of having strong principles, Hennessy quoted Socrates, who once said that people should regard their good name as the finest jewel they could ever own.

“People need to think about whether they are doing the right thing,” he said.

Hennessy also pointed to Abraham Lincoln as one of his favorite thinkers. Even when many people opposed him within his own circle, Lincoln never wavered from his moral courage to abolish slavery.
