Studies serve for delight, for ornament, and for ability. Their chief use for delight is in privateness and retiring; for ornament, is in discourse; and for ability, is in the judgment and disposition of business. For expert men can execute, and perhaps judge of particulars, one by one; but the general counsels, and the plots and marshalling of affairs, come best from those that are learned. To spend too much time in studies is sloth; to use them too much for ornament is affectation; to make judgment wholly by their rules is the humor of a scholar. They perfect nature and are perfected by experience; for natural abilities are like natural plants that need pruning by study; and studies themselves do give forth directions too much at large, except they be bounded in by experience. Crafty men condemn studies; simple men admire them; and wise men use them: For they teach not their own use; but that is a wisdom without them and above them, won by observation. Read not to contradict and confute; nor to believe and take for granted; nor to find talk and discourse; but to weigh and consider. Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: That is, some books are to be read only in parts; others to be read, but not curiously; and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention. Some books also may be read by deputy, and extracts made of them by others; but that would be only in the less important arguments, and the meaner sort of books; else distilled books are like common distilled waters, flashy things. Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man. And therefore, if a man write little, he had need have a great memory; if he confer little, he had need have a present wit; and if he read little, he had need have much cunning, to seem to know that he doth not.

He stressed that the country has rebounded to become a tiger economy, much sought after by international investors, an achievement attributed to prudent fiscal management and good governance by the Aquino administration.

Bagyong Yolanda

...dokumentaryo ang matinding pinsalang natamo ng Pilipinas mula sa Bagyong Yolanda lalong lalo na ang Region VIII, Tacloban, Eastern Samar at Leyte. Ang kawalan ng kabuhayan ng mga nakatira doon, ang mga reporma sa lupa, ang NO BUILDING ZONE POLICY kung saan bawal magtayo ng bahay o ano mang estruktura sa naturang lupain. Nabanggit din ditto ang napakabagal na pagaksyon ng pamahalaan ni PNOY kung saan umabot ng 3-5 days ay wala pa ding dumadating na relief goods, ang pagkurakot ng mga medical kits, ang pag-iwas ng gobyerno sa agrikultura, at ang karagdagang utang ng gobyerno na nagkakahalagang $2 Billion kaya pinaratangan ang pamumuno ni PNOY na Bagyong Gobyerno. People Surge bagong tatag na alyansa na binubuo ng mga survivors ng Bagyong Yolanda,kabilang ditto ang mga magsasaka, mangingisda at mga taong may mga daing na gusting iparating kay PNOY, nagrally sa harap ng Malacañang ang mga magsasaka, mangingisda at iba pang mga kasapi nila mula sa Eastern Samar at naghagilap ng 17 thousand na pirma o lagda para pakinggan ni PNOY. Ngunit hindi pa din sila nagtagumpay dahil hindi sila hinarap at pinakinggan ni PNOY. Sa aking sariling opinion, ang mas nakakapinsala o mas nakakaapekto sa ating lipunan ay ang Bagyong Gobyerno, dahil kung walang kurakot, at walang maglulustay ng pondo ng bansa sa walang kwentang mga proyekto at plataporma mas magiging maayos ang kalakaran at ang pagpapatakbo nila sa ating bansa.

Cnn Amanpour-Pnoy Interview Transcript

...AMANPOUR: President Aquino, welcome to the program. And thank you for joining me in the midst of this incredible national disaster. I appreciate your time. BENIGNO SIMEON COJUANGCO AQUINO III, PHILIPPINE PRESIDENT: Yes. Thank you for having us. AMANPOUR: Can I ask you first, you have toured some of the worst hit areas. On a personal note, how has it affected you, what you've seen, and how do you manage to reassure your people who have gone through this supertyphoon after an earthquake, after a typhoon last year? AQUINO: Well, I think, first of all, typhoons are not an unusual occurrence for the Philippines. We get visited by about 20 of them every year. But this year has been an exceptionally bad year, more than 20. We have been able to demonstrate as a government and as a people collectively that we take care of each other. And the government's immediate response, I think, has been reassuring to the vast majority of our people. Our ability to take care of our problems rather quickly, except in this particular case, the foundation of our efforts rely on the local government units. And unfortunately, two or three were simply overwhelmed by the degree of this typhoon that affected us. But other than that, in other areas, there was preemptive evacuations, cooperation from the citizenry, which brought down the casualty figures from the other areas affected, except for this corridor in the Leyte and two Samar provinces. AMANPOUR: It's obviously a huge......

Sona 2015 Reaction Paper

...On July 27, 2015, President Benigno “PNoy” Aquino delivered his sixth and final State of the Nation Address, at Batasan Complex, Quezon City, which is considered as his longest SONA. For the past five years, the Philippines made a rapid advancement especially with regards to its economy. It seemed that the Philippine economy reacted positively with PNoy’s “Daang Matuwid”. The Philippines now is slowly climbing the global competitiveness rankings thanks to PNoy’s advocacy to good governance reforms. President Aquino, highlighted his speech with the achievements of his administration including the improved economy and outlook; increased collection of revenues and benefits of his social service programs (Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4ps) and PhilHealth), comparing this to the past administration of Macapagal Arroyo including fertilizer fund scam; the NBN-ZTE anomalous deal and "Hello Garci" scandal. In our opinion, President Aquino rightly delivered a summary of what his administration has done to the country. He had to use previous administration's scandals so that the mistakes it incurred will not be repeated. The most unexpected part of his SONA was his indirect speech towards Vice President Jejomar Binay the standard-bearer of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) for next year elections and his presidential endorsement. Our President had dedicated his term on apprehending the corruption in our country. Comparing to the past administration, we can state that......
