• A nation is born into freedom on the day when such a people, moulded into a nation by a process of cultural evolution and sense of oneness born of common struggle and suffering, announces to the world that it asserts its natural right to liberty and is ready to defend it with blood, life, and honor.

    Diosdado Macapagal (1968). “A Stone for the Edifice: Memoirs of a President”
