I'm just a regular person who believes life is simple, and I like a simple life.
Being a Christian means accepting Christ as your savior, your God. That's why you are called a 'Christian.' If you remove Christ, there's only 'ian' and that means 'I am nothing.'
All those who are around me are the bridge to my success, so they are all important.
I remember as a little boy I ate one meal a day and sometimes slept in the street. I will never forget that and it inspires me to fight hard, stay strong and remember all the people of my country, trying to achieve better for themselves.
Boxing is not about your feelings. It's about performance.
Boxing is a sport. We allow each other to hit each other, but I'm not treating my opponent like my enemy. We're doing a job to entertain people.
I want the people of the Philippines to be happy, even if they have nothing.
I eat the same foods almost every day. I have my favorites like Filipino beef broth, chicken soup with lots and lots of rice.
I have to give people time to take a picture, and sign autographs. I have to be generous to people. It is in my heart. Without that, I would not be Manny Pacquiao.
I'm not against gay people.
The most important thing as a leader is your relationship with God.
Nothing personal - I am just doing my job.
I've worked in construction, in a factory sewing clothes. I also sold flowers and doughnuts - just odd jobs to try to make 10 pesos, which is equivalent to 20 cents.
I don't have secrets in my life. Everything is out there.
I've always fought for my country, in my own way, showing that Filipinos are a strong people and can do anything that they put their minds to.
