10 Quotable Quotes Of Tanghalang Pilipino' Mabining Mandirigma


For someone who has seen #MabiningMandirigma on its gala show on its first run, to the second set a few months after...and even on its third run, it's quite inevitable not to have some memorable moments with this much acclaimed (and loved) steam punk musicale.


With that, I was able to compile some memorable lines from the play. Some of them were from the songs...some were lines from the characters. But needless to say, all of them are timely, and memorable.

1) "Sa araw na ito aking inihayag,// ang pamahalaang puspos ng pag-asa.// Kaya hayaan ninyo ako na mag-alay // nang isang bigkis sa bagong Republika. // Maglayag nawa sya nang maraming taon// Upang mabiyayaan ng gintong kalayaan// ang mga susunod na henerasyon // sa lahat ng sulok ng sangkapuluan!!!" (Viva Republica Filipinas, Emilio Aguinaldo's song)


2) "Hindi nagtagumpay ang unang himagsikan dahil hindi ito nagabayan ng malinaw na ideyalohiya..." (Mabini explaining why the revolution did not meet its goals)

3) "Nais kong tuklasin ang ibang daigdig kung saan ang Diyos ay mapagmahal iginagalang ang katwiran at bait at kung saan ang tao ay pantay pantay." (Young Pule singing)

4) "Ang tinutukoy mo anak ay isang paraiso, di masusumpungan sa balat ng lupa kaya tipirin ang isip  purulin ang dila...mapait na sumpa ang maging marunong..." (Young Pule's mother's song response to the sublime paralytic's song)


5) "Kami po ang binusabos ng mga Kastila at mga Ilustrado,pinagkaitan ng tunay na edukasyon at pinuno ang utak ng lingguhang sermon" (Pepe's song)

6) "...handang mag-alay ng talino't panahon, bumuo ng Kongreso at nang konstitusyon na ibabandera sa lahat ng nasyon.." (Ilustrado's song, which is quite deceiving and ironic. They pledge their skills and knowledge to help the new republic, but it comes with a price)

7) "Tuyot na ang iyong mga paa kaya yayabong ang iyong isipan, titibay ang iyong kalooban, mamumukadkad ang iyong kadakilaan." (Mabini's mother's message while the latter was having deliryo)

8) "Pangalagaan mong huwag madungisan ang iyong dangal. Ang dangal ang ubod ng iyong pagkatao."

9) "Nasa pagkakaisa ang ating paglaya. Mahirap bang mag-isip bilang Pilipino?" (Mabini's frustration after Heneral Luna was killed)


10) "Mahalin mo ang pilipinas nang higit sa yong sarili, pamana siya ni bathala, pag-asa ng yong lahi.." (the epilogue song that sums it all)

I may be wrong with exact words uttered, and please send us a line if I wrote it incorrectly. After all, these were only memorized from my countless watching of the play. How about you, which lines from #MabiningMandirigma struck the nationalistic chord in you?

Mabining Mandirigma is on its last weekend December 16, 17 and 18 at the Little Theater, Cultural Center of the Philippines.
