No one should negotiate their dreams. Dreams must be free to fly high. No government, no legislature, has a right to limit your dreams. You should never agree to surrender your dreams.

Those are my priorities in life.

Perfectionism is not a quest for the best. It is a pursuit of the worst in ourselves, the part that tells us that nothing we do will ever be good enough – that we should try again.

Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather he must recognize that it is he who is asked.

There are two things a person should never be angry at, what they can help, and what they cannot.

A society should be judged by how it treats its children. A country that fails to invest in its children is imperilling its future.
Culture is mix. Culture means a mix of things from other sources. And my town, Istanbul, was this kind of mix. Istanbul, in fact, and my work, is a testimony to the fact that East and West combine cultural gracefully, or sometimes in an anarchic way, came together, and that is what we should search for.
