Lee Kuan Yew at 80

There are the three people whom I respect the most: Mr Sun Yat-sen, the father of modern China;  Mr Nelson Mandela, the ex-president of South Africa and the first Prime Minister of Singapore, Mr Lee Kuan Yew.  I feel that Mr Lee is a great person who has contributed a lot towards the building of our nation. I have read most of the memoirs about Mr Lee and I am recommending this special book to you, which contains 80 quotes from him.

The quotes are divided into six segments, highlighting the different stages of his life and his ambitions. The book starts with a short introduction with the title “Life is an adventure”, where Mr Lee talked about how he felt about his life for the past 80 years. Read from the first quote to the last and you will know more about his character, his views about the world, his career and his country. Last but not least, the book ends with quotes from his friends, colleagues, foreign media as well as opponent.
