Destiny, Your Number is Four


"Destiny, Your Number is 4, is another stellar accomplishment in the life of Dr. Lourdes R. Quisumbing, a person with many remarkable achievements.    As in her other writings, its messages reach across gender, country borders, religious backgrounds and ages.  It is a book in service to her profession, to her family, to her country, to the world and to God. It is as meaningful to those of us who live in the United States, as it is to the Filipinos who have her as their own."    Patricia Meany
