After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well.”

“Türk genci, devrimlerin ve cumhuriyetin sahibi ve bekçisidir. Bunların gereğine, doğruluğuna herkesten çok inanmıştır. Yönetim biçimini ve devrimleri benimsemiştir. Bunları güçsüz düşürecek en küçük ya da en büyük bir kıpırtı ve bir davranış duydu mu, ‘Bu ülkenin polisi vardır, jandarması vardır, ordusu vardır, adalet örgütü vardır.’ demeyecektir. Elle, taşla, sopa ve silahla; nesi varsa onunla kendi yapıtını koruyacaktır.
Polis gelecek, asıl suçluları bırakıp, suçlu diye onu yakalayacaktır. Genç, ‘Polis henüz devrim ve cumhuriyetin polisi değildir.’ diye düşünecek, ama hiç bir zaman yalvarmayacaktır. Mahkeme onu yargılayacaktır. Yine düşünecek, ‘Demek adliyeyi ıslah etmek, rejime göre düzenlemek lazım.’ diyecek.
Onu hapse atacaklar. Yasal yollarla karşı çıkışlarda bulunmakla birlikte bana, başbakana ve meclise telgraflar yağdırıp, haklı ve suçsuz olduğu için salıverilmesine çalışılmasını, kayrılmasını istemeyecek. Diyecek ki, ‘Ben inanç ve kanaatimin gereğini yaptım. Araya girişimde ve eylemimde haklıyım. Eğer buraya haksız olarak gelmişsem, bu haksızlığı ortaya koyan neden ve etkenleri düzeltmek de benim görevimdir.’
İşte benim anladığım Türk genci ve Türk gençliği!”
Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, Atatürk'ün Söylev ve Demeçleri
“The biggest battle is the war against ignorance.”
Mustafa Kemal Atatürk
“Büyük olmak için kimseye iltifat etmeyeceksin, hiç kimseyi aldatmayacaksın, ülke için gerçek amaç ne ise onu görecek ve o hedefe yürüyeceksin.

Herkes senin aleyhinde bulunacaktır, herkes seni yolundan çevirmeye çalışacaktır. Fakat sen buna karşı direneceksin, önüne sonsuz engeller de yığacaklardır; kendini büyük değil küçük, zayıf, araçsız, hiç sayarak, kimseden yardım gelmeyeceğine inanarak bu engelleri aşacaksın.

Bundan sonra da sana büyük derlerse, bunu söyleyenlere güleceksin.”
Mustafa Kemal Atatürk
“He is a weak ruler who needs religion to uphold his government; it is as if he would catch his people in a trap.”
Mustafa Kemal Atatürk
“En büyük savaş cahilliğe karşı yapılan savaştır.”
Mustafa Kemal Atatürk
