These words were found at the Pacific War Memorial in Corregidor Island. Corregidor is an island in Manila Bay that served as a focal point of naval defenses during the World War II. It is a significant historic and tourist site. More about Corregidor here and here.
Inscribed on a bench at the Georgia Aquarium are these words:
History is written by those who make the wake
not by those who ride on it
nor those who watch safely from the shore.
~ inspired by Billi and Bernie Marcus
