Cory Aquino was indeed one of our greatest leaders and a soon to be a national hero. These past few days I have been writing several post in her honor, if you have not read about it check out the following “The greatest legacy of Cory Aquino part 1” and then proceed to the “Greatest legacy of Corazon Aquino part 2.” You can then read all about The history, music and lyrics of the song “I have fallen in love with the same woman three times.” Ninoy Aquino’s love poem to the former president.

As a great leaders her words will echo throughout history and will continue to be quoted by men and women who dare to make a difference in this world. I’ve developed acne spending sleepless nights just trying to find these quotes (heheheh not really, so no need to buy acne creams) As president, Cory Aquino made several quotes but myy top ten favorite Cory Aquino Quotes are as follows:

Cory Aquino quotes number 10 – “I believe that during these times, we should not forget that many sacrificed to regain our democracy.”

Cory Aquino quotes number 9 – “I was very privileged and really blessed with so many material and spiritual gifts that I should give back, … I should do something for my people, but … it’s not just in politics that you can be a servant of the people, you can do it in so many other ways.”

Cory Aquino quotes number 8 – “I don’t have any formula for ousting a dictator or building democracy. All I can suggest is to forget about yourself and just think of your people. It’s always the people who make things happen.”
