I would rather have a country run like hell by Filipinos rather than a country run like heaven by Americans, because no matter how a bad Filipino government might be, we can always change it.
Manuel L. Quezon
Went to Ambeth Ocampo’s lecture today. He told us how the above quotation is usually quoted incompletely, and people forget the second part of the quote: “… because no matter how a bad Filipino government might be, we can always change it.” Before today, I never knew that the quote by Quezon I knew was incomplete. A government run by Americans might be heaven, but they will never listen to us, and they will never give us the power to change what we need to be changed.
➸ Storyline: Anna suffers from
agoraphobia so crippling that when a trio of criminals break into her
house, she cannot bring herself to flee. But what the intruders don’t
realize is that agoraphobia is not her only psychosis.
