Personal Quote:

[observation, 2013] My greatest satisfaction in life comes from the fact that I have spent years gathering support, mustering the will to make this place meritocratic, corruption-free and equal for all races - and that it will endure beyond me, as it has.


Mr. Lee was the first and longest-serving prime minister of Singapore, guiding it through a traumatic split with Malaysia in 1965. He helped transform what was then a sleepy port city into a global trade and financial centre. Handing over the leadership to a younger generation in 1990, he remained an influential figure for many more years. See more »
