1. Mr Lee Kuan Yew

Quote 1:
“If you ... do not understand that you got to defend this [Country], then in the end we will lose. Others will come, smack you down and take over.” Mr Lee Kuan Yew, Prime Minister (1967)

Quote 2: (Proposed @ Sierra)
“What he or she has in Singapore, he or she must be prepared to fight for and defend. Otherwise it will be lost.” Mr Lee Kuan Yew, Prime Minister (1967)

Quote 3:
“An officer must live by the SAFTI motto - "To Lead, To Excel, To Overcome". He must be ready to serve not just for himself but for the sake of a greater good: his comrades, his men, his unit and his country.” Mr Lee Kuan Yew

Quote 4:
“The success of Singapore depends upon how well we uphold these ideals: the constant drive to excel in all that we do, as individuals and as a nation, and a willingness to share responsibility for the common good.” Mr Lee Kuan Yew

Quote 5:
“The SAF is a citizens' militia, and its officer corps has a leadership role that extends beyond the SAF. The values inculcated in SAF officers are the same ones that they will transmit to their men, and which will permeate our society.” Mr Lee Kuan Yew

Quote 6:
“However, no one can teach each of you how to be a leader of men. You will have to learn how to earn the respect and confidence of other men placed under your charge, what moves them, and why some officers are better than others in getting their men to do better.” Mr Lee Kuan Yew

Quote 7:
“You will be responsible not only for what you yourself do, but also for your subordinates, what they do, or fail to do.” Mr Lee Kuan Yew

Quote 8:
“However, later in life, you will realise that how to get on with other men and how to get them to do things to the best of their ability, are amongst the most important things in life.” Mr Lee Kuan Yew
