“The man who saved Turkey from slavery, the man who lit the fire of freedom, the man who took his nation to independence in the battlefields has died ... The man who tore the enslaving agreements, the man who did not recognize what other countries decided, the man who forced other nations to respect his nation, the man who elevated his nation to desert of that reputation, the man who made all others respect his nation has died.”

“Mustafa Kemal has seen the reflections of the things he established. He has completed his mission. He has left this world successful and victorious.”

The Turks love Atatürk with an extraordinary passion. On a train trip to Bursa, I asked a small boy which of the two cities he liked best, İstanbul or Ankara. The boy answered, Ankara. When I asked him the reason, he said: "Atatürk is in Ankara."

The man who tore the enslaving agreements, the man who did not recognize what other countries decided, the man who forced other nations to respect his nation, the man who elevated his nation to desert of that reputation, the man who made all others respect his nation has died.”
