57 years since the first shout of MERDEKA by Tunku Abdul Rahman is heard from the heart of Kuala Lumpur, an image that is etched in the minds of most Malaysians.

Today, we’ve moved from narrow dirt roads to high speed motorway; from small huts and villages to cities of skyscrapers; from threats of the communist to stability and peace. Truly, how much have we progressed as a nation? Have we moved ahead enough to be at par with the world or are we falling behind?

Here’s some words of wisdom from our past leaders that would hopefully reflect in the mentality of our nation and motivate our nation's growth.

“Our future depends on how well many different kinds of people can live and work together”
- Tunku Abdul Rahman -

“Every one of us must respect each other's rights and feelings, be tolerant of each other's religions, customs and habits”
- Tunku Abdul Rahman -

“The future of our country depends on one important thing, that is on the unity of our people of various races”
- Tun Abdul Razak -

“Power is given to us, not to lord it over others, not to improve our standing nor to enrich ourselves”
- Tun Hussein Onn -

“The power entrusted to us is not to be used against others, not to improve our position and not to make us rich”
- Tun Hussein Onn -
