""Pilipinong tunay na makabayan at mapagmahal sa Diyos na nararamdaman, nakikita, at naririnig sa pamamagitan ng mga natatanging kultura at tradisyon na patuloy na pinagyayabong ng musika at sining na walang ibang inspirasyon kundi ang Dakilang Lumikha at ang bayan na may pagkakaisa at malasakit sa kapwa."
Ito ang mga katangiang namumukod tangi sa mga anak ng Angono na sina Carlos "Botong" Francisco at Maestro Lucio San Pedro na nagdala sa kanila sa rurok ng tagumpay at kilalanin bilang mga Pambansang Alagad ng Sining, si Botong sa larangan ng Pagpinta noong 1973 at si Maestro Lucio sa Musika noong 1991.
Ito rin ang hamon at panuntunan hindi lamang sa mga taga Angono kundi ng bawat Pilipino sa ating patuloy na pagsusumikap na buhayin ang nakagisnang kultura at tradisyon, musika at sining.
Ang mga katangiang ito din sana ang maging panuntunan ng bawat isa sa atin tungo sa ganap na pagkakaisa ng mga Pilipino patungo sa kaunlaran.
