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

Great quotations, and the third one is especially true to the Philippines if we look back at our history.
Very powerful and thought provoking photos and words. Nice job! Thanks for the visit on my sky watch post. :)
the epitaph served as reminder to the great deeds of our fallen heroes. they will never be forgotten....
usually wisdom is left on monuments and tombs to pass it on.
Love these Superior Snaps! And "Words" is such a great PhotoHunt theme...
Great find for this hunt.
Arg, I missed this hunt. I have good entries pa naman sana. Next time. I loved reading the statements.
i have been to corregidor only once and we stayed there overnight ghost-hunting. i never saw one but my friends say they have seen some. have you seen one there?
Very nice entry you got here and thanks for your comment on my entry. :)
hi, Lawstude! we didn't stay overnight in Corregidor. i'd love to go ghost-hunting there, i'm sure the ruins are creepy on a full moon.:P
or i may have seen a ghost there but didn't recognize it (hehe).
