Pangulong Aquino: "Kay Lt. General Catapang: Ngayon ngang nagbago na ang mukha ng Sandatahang Lakas, nawa’y sagarin mo ang bawat pagkakataon sa iyong liderato upang lalo pang tumibay at lumakas ang ating institusyon, sa ngalan ng makabuluhang paglilingkod sa ating kapwa at bandila."

Toast of President Aquino at the luncheon in honor of Dr. Jim Yong Kim
All these, without doubt, complement my administration’s strategy: to do right by our people, accelerate meaningful economic growth, and instill a culture of integrity, excellence, and inclusiveness. Indeed, the partnership we share serves as a firm foundation as my country works to build back better, and as we open more doors of opportunity for the Filipino people. And I look forward to deepening this partnership with you, Dr. Kim and the entire World Bank Group.
Speech of President Aquino at the Daylight Dialogue
Ensuring that essential services reach our countrymen is not just part of the mandate of the Executive Branch; it is part of the mandate of every branch of government. I find it difficult to accept their decision, when I know that we are right, and more importantly, that doing nothing means depriving so many Filipinos of opportunities to grow and prosper. I find it difficult to accept the decision of the Supreme Court, when it goes against the benefit our countrymen.
[English] National Address of President Aquino on the Supreme Court’s decision on DAP
President Aquino: "There are also those who say that DAP and PDAF are the same thing. Excuse me. DAP is different from PDAF. With PDAF, the corrupt funneled government funds into fake NGOs, money then allegedly divided among themselves. It’s clear that with DAP the people’s money was never stolen—the funds were used for the benefit of Filipinos. And not for later, not soon; but—now: Programs that could be implemented immediately were implemented immediately."
National Address of President Aquino on the Supreme Court’s decision on DAP
May mga nagsasabi rin po na pareho lang ang DAP sa PDAF. Excuse me. Iba ang DAP sa PDAF. Sa PDAF, may ilang nagdala ng pondo ng gobyerno sa mga pekeng NGO, at diumano’y pinaghati-hatian ng ilang mapang-abuso. Sa DAP, malinaw na hindi ninakaw ang pondo ng gobyerno—sinikap itong gastusin para maiparating ang benepisyo sa Pilipino. Hindi saka na, o bukas makalawa; now na. Ang kayang ipatupad agad, ipinatupad agad.

Speech of President Aquino at the Voyage: Marco Polo Ortigas Manila Grand Launch Affair
Just as Marco Polo, the traveler from whom you derived your name, became renowned for his account of his journey to the East, I am hopeful that this Marco Polo hotel truly becomes another gateway for tourists to discover our country, so that they may tell their friends, their family, and their colleagues back home just how fun it is here in the Philippines.
Speech of President Aquino at the 67th anniversary of the Philippine Air Force
Ito po mismo ang ipinagdiriwang natin ngayong anibersaryo ng Philippine Air Force: ang propesyunalismo, katapangan, at katatagang nagsilbi ninyong sandigan upang itaguyod ang ating pambansang dangal. Ito ang mga prinsipyong kinikilala natin sa bawat unit, piloto, at kawani na ating pinarangalan ngayong umaga, at sa iba pang lingkod-bayang katuwang sa ating agenda ng reporma. Sampu ng sambayanan, narito ako upang ipaabot ang pasasalamat sa inyong di-matatawarang serbisyo sa Pilipino. Sinasabi ko po sa inyong lahat: Keep it up, PAF.
