Quotes

"The strength of a man's virtue should not be measured by his special exertions, but by his habitual acts." – Blaise Pascal
"It's our way of showing that we are an environmentally-friendly city. It's about time we become conscious about biking and what it can do to help our environment" he said
"We will send teams to Coron and Sulat to build public markets and fishing boats. This is part of our commitment to help areas ravaged by Yolanda recover" he said
"So what the FAO is trying to do is we will provide them with vegetable seeds and also support them with layer chickens for both eggs and meat and also other small-scale ruminants like goats and piglets. Our approach is very much demand based and very much community driven."
