Manuel L. Quezon in 1935

manuel-quezon-speech-quote

Manuel L. Quezon was inaugurated president on November, 1935. Considered to be the first Filipino President of the Philippine Commonwealth under the United States.

He was famous for his remarks:

“I prefer a country run like hell by Filipinos to a country run like heaven by Americans. Because, however bad a Filipino government might be, we can always change it.”

I don’t necessarily agree with that quote above, and i’m not being a US suck up.

He redeemed himself by saying this:

“My loyalty to my party ends where my loyalty to my country begins.”
