“Както светлината причинява страдание на болните очи, така и щастието причинява болка на наранената душа. Както за болните очи, така и за наранените души няма по-добър лек от тъмнината.”
Reşat Nuri Güntekin, Çalıkuşu

“Bütün olan, geçen şeylere rağmen, sen yine bir parça benimdin; ben bütün ruhumla senin...”
