    Pinoy Forever: Essays on Culture and Language

    Edilberto N. Alegre

    Winner, National Book Award, Essay, 1993
    “These essays were not written to please you nor to entertain you. There was only one motivation?to hack at the jungles in our minds, the wild undergrowths of our miseducation. To stop the patronizing attitude of flabby minds which readily appropriate the foreigners’ view of what we are: embodiment of SIR (smooth interpersonal relations) and deeply dyed in utang na loob?traits which make lambs of us. They would make us believe that we are willing victims of their rapacity.”-Edilberto Alegre, in the foreword
