"There's a lot of people in the world who are celebrating this, but it's only going to be for a few weeks. I believe it will humble me, it will make me a better man, and will perhaps teach me of the things that are worthy to be said, as I measure every word now that I can speak. I think this will be a very good thing," he adds.
"I know what I have to do. And I know how much work is left to do. And this is just another irritant in the long road of irritants. But it's not going to stop me, and it's only going to sharpen my focus. I intend on using the next few weeks on intensive study on figures of the past, on figures of courage, and figures of people who have really made a difference," Mr. Beck said.
