The Prism — Rob O’Regan AM QC
What is your motto?
Not to take myself too seriously.
What is your idea of earthly happiness?
A fast top spin forehand landing deep just inside the backhand corner of the court with Michael Stewart sprawling well short of the ball.
What could you not live without?
What has been your greatest fear?
Flying in a Cessna in the PNG highlands with the clouds closing in and no airstrip visible below.
What is your greatest indulgence?
Giving full rein to my compulsion to buy books some of which I am unlikely to have time to read.
Which skill or talent would you most like to have?
To be able to sing — currently my singing a disturbance of the peace.
What is the trait you most deplore in others?
What is quality you most admire in a person?
What is your most marked characteristic?
My impetuosity or perhaps, as I am constantly told, my resemblance to Dalai Lama.
On what occasion do you lie?
To avoid unnecessary hurt.
What is your great regret?
I have no great regret. Only an occasional wistful speculation.
Which words or expressions do you most over-use?
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
To transform my capacity for creating doggerel into a talent for poetry.
To what do you aspire?
How would you like to be remembered?
It would be presumptuous to speculate about it.
