Lee Kuan Yew

was 1st Prime Minister of Singapore
I'm not saying that everything I did was right, but everything I did was for an honourable purpose.More Lee Kuan Yew quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Mine is a very matter-of-fact approach to the problem. If you can select a population and they're educated and they're properly brought up, then you don't have to use too much of the stick because they would already have been trained. It's like with dogs. You train it in a proper way from small. It will know that it's got to leave, go outside to pee and to defecate. No, we are not that kind of society. We had to train adult dogs who even today deliberately urinate in the lifts.More Lee Kuan Yew quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I’m not interested in changing either my suit or my car or whatever with every change in fashion. That’s irrelevant. I don’t judge myself or my friends by their fashions. Of course, I don’t approve of people who are sloppy and unnecessarily shabby or dishevelled… But I’m not impressed by a US$5,000 or US$10,000 Armani suit.More Lee Kuan Yew quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What I fear is complacency. When things always become better, people tend to want more for less work.More Lee Kuan Yew quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Three women were brought to the Singapore General Hospital, each in the same condition and needing a blood transfusion. The first, a Southeast Asian was given the transfusion but died a few hours later. The second, a South Asian was also given a transfusion but died a few days later. The third, an East Asian, was given a transfusion and survived. That is the X factor in development.More Lee Kuan Yew quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
