I don't know much about the woman, but I did find the following quotes interesting/noteworthy:

On the next CEO: "The "name in the envelope" has changed often enough that it would probably surprise you."

On breaking up Berkshire: "Warren has designed it so that Berkshire can't be broken up as far as I can tell. For example, I am fairly sure that National Indemnity owns the railroad. No way would the insurance regulators let that be unwound."

On his personal life: "When I was 47, I was having a difficult year for a variety of reasons and Warren sat me down and said look, when I was 47 I thought my life was over. Susie had left me, and I had already accomplished everything I thought was worthwhile as an investor. Berkshire, as far as I knew, was at its peak. And to my surprise, my life kept getting more and more interesting since, and most of the really important things I've done happened after I was 47 and thought my life was over. "
