“Bu dünyada sana kötülük yapmak isteyen insanlar çıkacak karşına, ama unutma ki iyilik yapmak isteyenler de çıkacak. Kimi insanın yüreği karanlık, kimininki aydınlıktır. Geceyle gündüz gibi! Dünyanın kötülerle dolu olduğunu düşünüp küsme, herkesin iyi olduğunu düşünüp hayal kırıklığına uğrama! Kendini koru ..., insanlara karşı kendini koru!”
Zülfü Livaneli, Serenad

“Her insan bedeninin çürüyeceğini bilir ve bundan korkar. Ama çoğu insanın ruhu gövdesinden önce çürür; nedense bundan kimse korkmaz!”
Zülfü Livaneli, Kardeşimin Hikâyesi

“Ölümün kıyısı, ölümün kendisinden daha feci bir şeydir, bunu yaşayarak öğrendim. Bağlanmalar yüzünden aklını kaçırmanın kıyısında dolaşmıştım uzun süre. İçime karanlık yerleşmişti; bir türlü söküp atamadığım, kusamadığım, çıkaramadığım bir koyu karanlık.”
Zülfü Livaneli, Bir Kedi, Bir Adam, Bir Ölüm
