Goh Chok Tong
Slowly, ideas lead to ideology, lead to policies that lead to actions.
There are many people in the world who feel that if only they had a bigger car, a nicer house, better vacations, a more understanding boss, or a more interesting partner, then their life would work. We all go through that one. Slowly we wear out most of our 'if onlies.'
