From the fourth State of the Nation Address of President Ramon Magsaysay, delivered on January 28, 1957:
Members of the Congress: thus far we have gone in the past three years. We have provided for the national security, both within and without. Our masses, the vital object of our joint concern, have received priority in our efforts. Their well-being is paramount.
We have made progress in the economic sphere.
We have worked hard to assure that our Government continue to protect the liberty and dignity of the individual. We have discharged the positive duty incumbent on government of insuring the enjoyment of social and economic rights under the more complex conditions of this age.
Yet, much remains to be done.
