Conference paper


It is a distinct pleasure to pay tribute to Prof. Jiro Suzuki. In the wide world of our profession, he ranks as a great man. Longfellow, the distinguished American poet, described the tireless energy, determination, tenacity, and dedication of Jiro Suzuki when he wrote this poem:

The heights by great men reached and kept

Were not attained by sudden flight,

But they, while their companions slept,

Were toiling upward in the night.

(The Ladder of St. Augustine)
