„To hell with more. I want better.“

—  Ray Bradbury American writer 1920 - 2012
Context: People ask me to predict the future, when all I want to do is prevent it. Better yet, build it. Predicting the future is much too easy, anyway.

„I would rather have a government run like hell by Filipinos than a government run like heaven by any foreigner.“

—  Manuel L. Quezon president of the Philippines from 1935 to 1944 1878 - 1944
Context: It is true, and I am proud of it, that I once said, “I would rather have a government run like hell by Filipinos than a government run like heaven by Americans.” I want to tell you that I have, in my life, made no other remark which went around the world but that. There had been no paper in the United States, including a village paper, which did not print that statement, and I also had seen it printed in many newspapers in Europe. I would rather have a government run like hell by Filipinos than a government run like heaven by any foreigner. I said that once; I say it again, and I will always say it as long as I live.
