The Vice President quoted:

We want the happiness of the Philippines, but we want to obtain it through noble and just means, for right is on our side and therefore we ought not to do anything wrong. If I have to act villainously in order to make my country happy, I would refuse to do it because I am sure that what is built on sand sooner or later would tumble down.

Robredo added that the effective way to address the ills of the country is only through “doing what is right, in the proper way.”



“We will not attain true progress through hastened and brutal solutions, especially those that go against the laws,” she added in Filipino.


On Rizal Day, VP Robredo further urged: “Let us remain true to our principles and convictions so that we may achieve change that does not leave anyone behind and that gives justice to all.”
“By doing what is right and good, we can elevate the lives of our people and bring prosperity to our beloved Philippines,” she added.
