“Karena saat ini banyak perwira yang ora merwirani lagi. Yang saya maksud dengan perwira adalah parawira, yaitu orang-orang yang tidak merasa kehilangan apapun ketika bersikap hormat dan peduli kepada orang lain. Orang-orang yang tidak merasa rendah ketika meninggikan harkat dan martabat orang lain. Mereka adalah orang-orang yang malu ketika merasa dirinya lebih penting daripada orang lain siapapun orang lain itu.”
Ahmad Tohari, Orang-orang Proyek

“Mereka mengira dengan melampiaskan dendam maka urusannya selesai. Nah, mereka keliru. Dengan cara itu bahkan mereka memulai urusan baru yang panjang dan lebih genting. Di dunia ini, Nak, tak ada sesuatu yang berdiri sendiri. Maksudku, tak suatu upaya apa pun yang bisa bebas dari akibat. Upaya baik berakibat baik, upaya buruk berakibat buruk.”
Ahmad Tohari, Ronggeng Dukuh Paruk

“Yang penting, kita telah bersahabat. Persahabatan tidaklah sesempit teka teki silang, bukan?" (113)”
