"And cowardice always led to a more miserable but safe world."

Okay Tiryakioğlu 'LAWFUL'

Pargalı İbrahim's first encounter with Kanuni is described as follows in the book: A widowed but rich Ottoman lady named Pargali Aybike Hatun takes Ibrahim as a slave and raises him as an educated and well-equipped young man. He is very curious about İbrahim Kanuni and is looking for an opportunity to see him in Mersin, where he is the Sanjak Bey. Knowing that Suleiman the Magnificent was interested in music, while he was playing his kemenche in the field where he hunted, the janissaries took him to the tent of Sancak Bey, and at the moment when Pargalı was being interrogated, the same voice said "you". The magnificence of its tone sent shivers through my soul. At that moment, I found myself in the middle of a vast ocean and said, 'I know Aybike Hatun' very well. I heard your praise, Ibrahim of Parga.

İskender Pala - Death in Babylon, Love in Istanbul

Raise your voice! Low voices are passive voices. Passive voices are bad voices. Raise your voice. Raise your voice. May your love always be on your tongue. Shout the slogans loudly. Let your voice be the voice of the oppressed. The voice of the oppressed. Sing loudly the song of brotherhood, peace, love and freedom!


Muhammad Ali,Ferhat Özbadem

Becoming human, not becoming more robotized, will return as a job. In other words, the world will need people, not more robots. Artificial intelligence robots will be able to do everything we do by thinking, but they will not be able to do things we do with consciousness and emotion without thinking.

"Are you afraid of the servant who does not know when he will take his last breath?"


Life Readings,Hilal Altındiş

Now I really understood what it meant to suffer. Suffering did not mean being beaten until you fainted. It wasn't about getting stitches at the pharmacy for a glass cut on your foot. The real pain was something that made the heart ache from head to toe and made people want to die without telling anyone their secret. Something that always leaves the arms and head weak and extinguishes even the desire to turn over on the pillow.
