The Grand Master's Birthday

Posted by: Dave Ryman

Happy Birthday to the Grand Master, Lee Kuan Yew!

For his birthday we have an excerpt from Lee Kuan Yew: The Grand Master’s Insights on China, the United States, and the World explaining how Mr. Yew wishes to be remembered in his renowned candor:

I do not want to be remembered as a statesman. First of all, I do not classify myself as a stateman. I put myself down as determined, consistent, persistent. I set out to do something. I keep chasing it until it succeeds. That is all…Anybody who thinks he is a statesman needs to see a psychiatrist.
