Maybe in the future I might enter a life of celibacy. But not right now, because all the organs in my body are functioning properly.Public Relations Minister Mervyn Silva, at a press conference on Friday, 24 August 2012.
This feeling of belonging and identity is especially important for an open society in a globalised world. But it is also harder to nurture when we have new immigrants and foreign workers. We are managing the inflow to minimise the strains on our infrastructure and society. But Singaporeans must remain confident and open, and welcome those who will strengthen our team and help us and our children do better. For their part, new immigrants must make the effort to integrate into our community. They must acquire our social values, our cultural values, adopt our social norms and commit their loyalty and love to Singapore.PM Lee Hsien Loong, in his 2012 National Day Message.
