Reflections

“How shall freedom be defended? By arms when it is attacked by arms, by truth when it is attacked by lies, by faith when it is attacked by authoritarian dogma. Always, in the final act, by determination and faith.”

― Archibald MacLeish

Duterte, If Jose Rizal Were Alive Today ,What Would He Say To YOU?

“Ang poot walang nililikha kundi mga dambuhala, 
mga kasamaan, mga salarin.
Tanging ang tunay na pag-ibig lamang ang nakakalikha ng mga bagay na tunay na kahanga-hanga.” 
― José Rizal, El Filibusterismo
“It is not the criminals who arouse the hatred of others, but the men who are honest.”

I wish to show those who deny us patriotism that we know how to die for our country and convictions. 
(inscribed at Fort Santiago Walls)
 "There are no tyrants where there are no slaves."
-- José Rizal, El Filibusterismo (translated by Charles Derbyshire as The Reign of Greed)
“To be happy does not mean to indulge in foolishness!” 
― José Rizal, Noli Me Tángere
"To foretell the destiny of a nation, it is necessary to open the book that tells of her past."
-- José Rizal, quote inscribed in Fort Santiago
One only die once and if one does not die well, a good opportunity is lost and will not present itself again.
 - (Letter to Mariano Ponce - 1890)
 "It is a useless life that is not consecrated to a great ideal. It is like a stone wasted on the field without becoming a part of any edifice."
RIZAL
“I honor the father in his son, not the son in his father. Each one receives a reward or punishment for his deeds, but not for the acts of others.” 
― José Rizal, Noli Me Tángere
“The glory of saving a country doesn't mean having to use the measures that contributed to its ruin!” 
― José Rizal, El Filibusterismo
“The glory of saving a country doesn't mean having to use the measures that contributed to its ruin!” 
― José Rizal, El Filibusterismo

― José Rizal, El Filibusterismo
“Would that I could die, reduce myself to nothing, leave a glorious name to my country, die in the cause of defending it against a foreign invasion and afterwards the sun will shine on my body like a permanent sentinel in these ocean rocks!” 
― José Rizal, El Filibusterismo
“We want the happiness of the Philippines, but we want to obtain it through noble and just means. If I have to commit villainy to make her happy, I would refuse to do so, because I am sure that what is built on sand sooner or later would tumble down.” 
― José Rizal, The Rizal-Blumentritt Correspondence
The just and the worthy have to suffer in order to spread their ideas and let them be known. One has to shake and break the glass in order to scatter the perfume. One has to scratch the surface of the rock to release the light. There is something providential in the persecution of tyrants.” 
― José Rizal, El Filibusterismo
“I die without seeing the dawn brighten over my native land. You who have it to see, welcome it ... and forget not those who have fallen during the night!” 
― José Rizal
“Our liberty will not be secured at the sword's point... We must secure it by making ourselves worthy of it. And when the people reaches that height, God will provide a weapon, the idols will be shattered, tyranny will crumble like a house of cards, and liberty will shine out like the first dawn.” 
― José Rizal
