Lot Essay

"...the search for Filipino identity connotes not so much the quixotic journey to a time past, nor the exorcism of our colonial trauma, as a shoring of pride in the discovery of a unique sense of self as Filipino."

(Krip Yuson and Cid Reyes, Bencab, Mantes Publishing, Manila, 2002, p. 259)
