You always hear young Filipinos saying that there's nothing beautiful about our culture, or that our culture does not have any artistic achievements. Whenever you hear that, take those Filipinos to one of the Heritage Libraries in the Philippines and show them these works of art, or the works of literature written in Spanish, Tagalog, Filipino Languages, and English by great Filipino authors.
