    Miriam has also been the darling of the press because of her wit and candor. The MOVERS-YOUTH (Movement for Responsible Public Service-Youth Organization for Unity, Truth, and Honesty) published in 1991 some of the memorable quotes by Miriam. These includes the often quoted:

    comicsample
    • “I eat death threats for breakfast!” 

      (To a journalist’s question: “What is your reaction to the many death threats received by your office?”)  

      “As the poet said, because I could not stop for death, he kindly stopped for me.  But as another poet said, although the woods are lovely, dark, and deep, I have miles to go before I sleep.  As God has seen fit to spare of my life, I am committed to the pursuit of His justice, including the crusade against graft and corruption.

      “I challenged him to a debate in UP or Ateneo campus.  His reply was that he cannot debate with women.  I asked around, and I learned that he cannot debate with men, either.  In short, he simply cannot debate.”
