Lee Kuan Yew

Lee Kuan Yew

was 1st Prime Minister of Singapore
But we either believe in democracy or we not. If we do, then, we must say categorically, without qualification, that no restraint from the any democratic processes, other than by the ordinary law of the land, should be allowed… If you believe in democracy, you must believe in it unconditionally. If you believe that men should be free, then, they should have the right of free association, of free speech, of free publication. Then, no law should permit those democratic processes to be set at nought.More Lee Kuan Yew quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
For reasons of sentiment, I would like part of my ashes to be mixed up with Mama's, and both her ashes and mine put side by side in the columbarium. We were joined in life and I would like our ashes to be joined after this life.More Lee Kuan Yew quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If, for instance, you put in a Malay officer who's very religious and who has family ties in Malaysia in charge of a machine gun unit, that's a very tricky business. We've got to know his background... I'm saying these things because they are real, and if I don't think that, and I think even if today the Prime Minister doesn't think carefully about this, I and my family could have a tragedy.More Lee Kuan Yew quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I started off believing all men were equal. I now know that's the most unlikely thing ever to have been. . .by observation, reading, watching, arguing, asking, and then bullying my way to the top, that is the conclusion I've come to.More Lee Kuan Yew quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We decide what is right. Never mind what the people think.More Lee Kuan Yew quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
