On Ninoy Aquino Day

I have weighed all the virtues and faults of the Filipinos, and I have come to the conclusion that the Filipino is worth dying for.

– Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Jr (1932-1983)


On temptation

The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Resist it, and your soul grows sick with longing for the things it has forbidden to itself, with desire for what its monstrous laws have made monstrous and unlawful.

– Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
