“از جان کُردها چه می‌خواهید؟
از جان این انسان‌ها که چه در طی حیات‌شان و چه هنگام مرگ‌شان، برایتان اهمیتی ندارند چه می‌خواهید؟
از آنها چه می‌خواهید؟
در واقع خواسته شما آشکار و مبرهن است؛ شما می‌خواهید که ارباب آنها و آنها نیز برده شما باشند

اما کُردها، برده نمی شوند! هرگز به این آرزوی‌تان نخواهید رسید!

با این خودخواهیتان، این تکبرتان و این خود بزرگ بینیتان، آنچنان تخم های نفرت را در دل کردها خواهید کاشت که اگر همچنان به آن ادامه دهید در این کشور جنگ هرگز پایان نمی یابد”
Ahmet Altan

“Ölümden korktuğumuzdan değil yaşadığımız, biz savaşmayı sevdiğimizden yaşarız.”
Ahmet Altan, Ve Kırar Göğsüne Bastırırken

“Hiçbir zaman başka bir insanı, o insan en yakınımız olsa bile, tümüyle tanıyamayacağımızı, iki insanın arasında daima görülemez karanlık alanların bulunacağını, iki insanın asla tam anlamıyla bütünleşemeyeceğini fark edip kendimizi bu dünyada yapayalnız hisseder; yüzünü gördüğümüz, sesini duyduğumuz, günlerce aylarca hatta yıllarca konuştuğumuz, birlikte en gizli zevkleri paylaştığımız birinin nasıl olup da bize yabancı olabildiğini anlayamamanın çaresizliğini yaşadık.”
Ahmet Altan, Aldatmak
