* When you jump onto the emptiness of the loneliness, the best parachute to land you safely will be the books! ~ (Mehmet Murat ildan)

* No bodyguard can ever protect us from the gossips; because in the case of gossip, we are beaten in our absence! ~ (Mehmet Murat ildan)

* A lion or a tiger does not need bodyguards; only the weak and the coward need warriors to protect him! A king needs an army and soldiers, because he is weak and powerless. Wherever you see someone protected; there, you will see either the weak or the coward! Strong fist does not require defenders! Shining sword is not in need of protection! ~ (Mehmet Murat ildan)

 

* Art is a hot soup in this cold world! ~ (Mehmet Murat ildan)

* We are the visitors in the lives of others; we visit them and we disappear! ~ (Mehmet Murat ildan)

 

* An unfree mind is just like a windmill inside the bell jar! ~ (Mehmet Murat ildan)

 

 

* Man is flawed; universe is imperfect; the functioning of the cosmos is defective! Everything seems to be severely punished by the imperfection! May be the real challenge of men is to correct all these flaws! It is possible to think that God is an evolutionary perfectionist! He creates things as unimportant and faulty; then let them all alone and fateless to evolve to perfection! ~ (Mehmet Murat ildan)

 

* Elvis Presley once said that I don’t know anything about the music. It is because he is the music itself! The nightingales don’t know anything about the music! ~ (Mehmet Murat ildan)

 

* We have invented the literature because the reality wasn’t imaginative enough and we also wanted to be alone, at least for a while! ~ (Mehmet Murat ildan)

 

* The world is full up with the talented impersonators of the Devil! ~ (Mehmet Murat ildan)

 

* Woman cannot be free until man’s mind is liberated from the megalomania! His self-exaltation is the mother of the gender inequalities. Till we eliminate his exacerbated narcissism, woman will remain unfree!  ~ (Mehmet Murat ildan)

 

* If you have good friends, don’t look for treasure because you are already rich; if you have just treasure, look for good friends, because you are still poor! ~ (Mehmet Murat ildan)

 

* It is an utter shame to spend millions on the sanctuaries while millions are dying of hunger! Institutional religion must go to Hell even only for this infamy! ~ (Mehmet Murat ildan)

* There is no moonlight in the Moon. It is same for the fame! Celebrity shines only from the distance! ~ (Mehmet Murat ildan)

* It is always a great honour to mention a truth which has not become widespread yet. One of these truths is that man has no soul; he has only ‘body’ and ‘mind’. Man’s unshakable belief on the soul will not change this scientific truth! No belief can be higher than the scientific truths! Man can be born, can walk and work and can think without owning a mysterious and an immaterial soul! The soullessness of the man is a great tragedy both for the man and for the religion. But Man, contrary to the religion, will come out from this tragedy with triumph. ~ (Mehmet Murat ildan)
