From all of my heart I want to congratulate all people with this wonderful day. It‘s a big day for our country. Wish the best Independence Day Philippines!
Let’s salute our martyrs for the sacrifices they made and appreciate them for giving us today. Happy independence of Philippines!
It is an honor to die for one’s country. Not everybody has that chance. – José Abad Santos
I have carefully weighed the virtues and the faults of the Filipino and I have come to the conclusion that he is worth dying for. – Benigno Aquino, Jr.
Nationalism is nourished by a sense of history. It is of its essence to know profoundly the past, so that we may be in complete openness with the men who made that history and in intimate communion with their thoughts, their deeds, and their noble lives. – Claro M. Recto, Jr.
This country [the Philippines] is like a pyramid, like a tower. It is made up of millions of stones… and the foundation stone of this pyramid is the common man. – Ramon Magsaysay
You might wonder that I who have served you in the field of diplomacy should set so much store by the power of nationalism. This is because I know from personal experience that in order to become an effective internationalist, one must strive to be a good nationalist. To be a worthy citizen of the world one must first prove himself to be a good Filipino. – Carlos P. Romulo
