“…I wanted them to know how difficult it was for a small country with no natural resources to survive…We cannot afford to forget that public order, personal security, economic and social progress, and prosperity are not the natural order of things, that they depend on ceaseless effort and attention from an honest and effective government that the people must elect…”
..Paraphrased from the Preface of “From Third World to First” by Lee Kuan Yew
