“Bizden bir şey saklayabileceğini sanıyorsan çok aptallık etmiş olursun. Biz şimdiden her şeyi biliyoruz, ona göre konuş. Önemli olan, bizim bilmemiz değil, senin bilmendir. Sorula sorula öğreneceksin. Ve ne kadar basit olduğunu sonunda göreceksin.”
Melih Cevdet Anday, İsa'nın Güncesi

“Hayatın bütün zorluğu çok basit olmasında”
Melih Cevdet Anday

“Parçalanıyordum kimse bilmeden,
Ateştim cevizin içinde,
Ve bir gece içinde bilmeden öldüm.
Ey gece, nereden yol bulacağız,
ey yaralı göğsüme düşen yelken,
Ya sen kürek, solmuş rüzgar gülüm,
Ya sen ne diyeceksin, söyle!”
Melih Cevdet Anday
