Examples of Filipino in a Sentence

  1. Eumir Felix Marcial:

    Boxing has been ingrained in the Filipino mindset for decades or maybe even centuries, it has always been a sport Filipinos love and I don't think that the rise of MMA will affect it. As a general rule, people will start with boxing and hopefully, most of those who start with the sport will continue.

  2. Rodrigo Duterte:

    You are a Filipino who was allowed to abuse our country ... in the name of the holy grail of press freedom, you are not only throwing toilet paper, you are throwing shit at us.

  3. Erik Hanell:

    There are 23 seafarers onboard of Indian, Russian, Latvian and Filipino nationality.

  4. Vicente Lim:

    The principal defect of our national defense is not the training nor the lack of finances, but the great and dangerous defect of democracy which has been implanted into the minds of the Filipino people. We have a nationally wrong conception of democracy. Our democracy in the Philippines is unilateral. It is only for the benefit, for the freedom, for the rights, comfort and happiness of each individual member of the nation. That is the common belief, and I venture to say that 99.9% of our people believe in that kind of democracy. They do not know their obligations, their duties and the sacrifices that they should give to the state which is the relative counterpart of the amount of personal democracy he should indulge. The two should balance.

  5. Vicente Lim:

    My greatest misgiving in this Army is the old system of the Filipino people. For an honest man it is rather the cause of my unhappiness. I am unhappy every time I see an officer or a reserve given more advantage over his brother officer because of his political or personal pull. That irritates me so much, I just cannot get over it.
