Babala

-Babala sa mga lumiliban sa klase na walang makatwirang dahilan.  Huwag mabibigla sa nagbabadyang 5.0. INC o pagpapadrop sa inyo.  Pito na rin ang pinayuhan kong magdrop para maging makatarungan para sa lahat.
-Tama ang kasabihan na kung galit ka sa isang tao ay turuan mo siyang magsugal.
-Ayon sa isang mambabatas, tinititiyak lamang ng paggamit ng helmet na hindi basag ang mukha ng paglalamayan. Ibayong pag-iingat sa lahat.
-"Babala sa mga kandidatong ill-qualified at ill-motivated ngayong halalang 2013.  Bumuka sana ng malaki ang lupa para may kalagyan sila." - Poldo Pasangkrus

Makatarungang Pasko at Bagong Taon



"Ang makatarungang Pasko at Bagong Taon ay yaong hindi lamang nagsisilbing pampakalimot sa mga problema ng lipunan kundi tunay na pagdiriwang ng pagtataguyod ng mga karapatan sa lupa, edukasyon, at kalusugan ng mamamayan.  Partikular sa mga estudyante, ito ay ang Pasko at Bagong Taon na walang pangamba kung may pang-enroll sa June.  At sa maraming iba pa, ito ay ang Pasko at Bagong Taon na hindi nasasamantala ng pagtaas ng presyo ng langis at 'di maayos na network services."

-JM Lanuza
IV Political Science
DS 123
