Imelda Marcos


Former First Lady and erstwhile powerful political figure in the Philippines.
Imelda Marcos
Filipinos don't wallow in what is miserable and ugly. They recycle the bad into things of beauty.
Marcos quotes
Thank God I never lost that childlike innocence and the purity of vision and naivete. …That childlike innocence was most useful, because if I was a bit wiser, I wouldn't have been able to do anything, perhaps. So I'm glad I was not smart.
Marcos
If you know how rich you are, you are not rich. But me, I am not aware of the extent of my wealth. That's how rich we are.




Marcos Imelda quotes
They went into my closets looking for skeletons, but thank God, all they found were shoes, beautiful shoes.
Marcos Imelda
I'm like Robin Hood. I rob the rich to make these projects come alive... not really rob. It's done with a smile.
Imelda Marcos quotes
I have never been a material girl. My father always told me never to love anything that cannot love you back.
Imelda Marcos
President Marcos was investing in precious metals long before he entered politics.
Marcos Imelda quotes
The Philippines is in a strategic position. It is both East and West, right and left, rich and poor. We are neither here nor there.
Marcos
The Philippines is where Asia wears a smile. Beautiful products can only be made by happy people.
Marcos Imelda
I would have to ask the public to choose between a culture of hate or a culture of love. I am sure our poor will pick the latter. With the Marcos assets, we could regain this value of sharing love with one another.
Imelda Marcos
I'm the Imelda Marcos of sunglasses.




Imelda Marcos quotes
I was born ostentatious. They will list my name in the dictionary someday. They will use 'Imeldific' to mean ostentatious extravagance.
Imelda Marcos
The best compliment I ever got in my life came from Chairman Mao of China. When I went there, at a time when nobody wanted to touch China with a 10-foot pole, Mao told me that I'm beautiful because I'm a natural, and he said natural is perfection. So, no character assassination can diminish me and my perfection.
Marcos quotes
I've always maintained that the only things to uphold are the good, the true and the beautiful. We have to reject what's ugly.
Marcos Imelda
Funny, I never shopped. Even my jewelry — not a piece of my jewelry I bought for me.
Marcos Imelda quotes
Diligence, hard work, foresight, entrepreneurship and God's blessing.
Imelda Marcos
I will not say sorry and be pardoned for doing a godly act.
Imelda Marcos quotes
A cunning child with a remarkable gift for both self-delusion and self-preservation. Marcos, who turned 75 last week, always maintained her childlike sense of entitlement, despite the harsh realities of life.
Imelda Marcos
She spent money. No question about that...She is a world-class spender. She is a world-class shopper.
Marcos Imelda
When they see me holding fish, they can see that I am comfortable with kings as well as with paupers.
