From the second State of the Nation Address of President Carlos P. Garcia, delivered on January 16, 1959:
Gentlemen of the Congress, let me say in conclusion, that the faith of this nation is deep and abiding; the spirit of this nation is mighty; the determination of this nation is invincible. On this rock of faith, and with this spirit and this determination, let us build the House of the Nation so that it may be said: “And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, but it did not fall because it was founded on rock.”
From the third State of the Nation Address of President Carlos P. Garcia, delivered on January 25, 1960:
Gentlemen, in the past we achieved success not alone by the creative endeavor of the nation but also by the help of Divine Providence. Now we have set new goals for our people, but again, we cannot succeed alone. So we shall continue to seek and rely on the guiding hand of Him who holds the destiny of men and nations in his hand. On His mercy and His strength we rely.
From the fourth State of the Nation Address of President Carlos P. Garcia, delivered on January 23, 1961:
It is with deep satisfaction and warranted optimism that I now open the fourth regular session of this Congress. For during the year 1960 Divine Providence has made it possible for us as a nation to attain new summits in our unending Odyssey in the highway of progress and development. Our success has deepened our faith and heightened our hope that the Philippine Republic will live to attain its sublime national Destiny.
