Mustafa Kemal Pascha, seit 1934 mit dem Nachnamen Atatürk , war der Begründer der Republik Türkei und von 1923 bis 1938 erster Präsident der nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg aus dem Osmanischen Reich hervorgegangenen modernen Republik.

Seine Verdienste als Offizier bei der Verteidigung der Halbinsel Gallipoli 1915 gegen alliierte Truppen, welche die Dardanellen unter ihre Kontrolle bringen wollten, und ab 1921 der Abwehrkampf gegen die nach Anatolien vorgedrungenen Griechen haben ihn zur Symbolfigur türkischen Selbstbehauptungswillens und Nationalbewusstseins werden lassen. Als Machtpolitiker, der die Modernisierung seines Landes nach westlichem Vorbild beharrlich vorantrieb, hat er mit der Abschaffung von Sultanat und Kalifat sowie mit weitreichenden gesellschaftlichen Reformen einen in dieser Form einmaligen Staatstypus geschaffen. Darauf beruhen – trotz teilweiser Kontroversen über sein Wirken – die personenkultartige Verehrung, die ihm in der Türkei bis heute entgegengebracht wird, und die Unangefochtenheit des ihm 1934 vom türkischen Parlament verliehenen Nachnamens Atatürk .

„Es gibt verschiedene Kulturen, aber nur eine Zivilisation, die europäische.“

—  Kemal Atatürk
zitiert in Bernd Rill: Kemal Atatürk, rowohlt Verlag 1985, S. 80

„Those who use religion for their own benefit are detestable.“

—  Мустафа Кемаль Ататюрк
Context: Religion is an important institution. A nation without religion cannot survive. Yet it is also very important to note that religion is a link between Allah and the individual believer. The brokerage of the pious cannot be permitted. Those who use religion for their own benefit are detestable. We are against such a situation and will not allow it. Those who use religion in such a manner have fooled our people; it is against just such people that we have fought and will continue to fight. Know that whatever conforms to reason, logic, and the advantages and needs of our people conforms equally to Islam. If our religion did not conform to reason and logic, it would not be the perfect religion, the final religion. As quoted in Kemalizm, Laiklik ve Demokrasi [Kemalism, Laicism and Democracy] (1994) by Ahmet Taner Kışlalı

„Your voice is my voice. Do not forget it!“

„My people are going to learn the principles of democracy, the dictates of truth and the teachings of science.“

—  Мустафа Кемаль Ататюрк
Context: I have no religion, and at times I wish all religions at the bottom of the sea. He is a weak ruler who needs religion to uphold his government; it is as if he would catch his people in a trap. My people are going to learn the principles of democracy, the dictates of truth and the teachings of science. Superstition must go. Let them worship as they will; every man can follow his own conscience, provided it does not interfere with sane reason or bid him against the liberty of his fellow-men. Quoted in Atatürk: The Biography of the founder of Modern Turkey, by Andrew Mango; "In a book published in 1928, Grace Ellison quotes [Atatürk], presumably in 1926-27", Grace Ellison Turkey Today (London: Hutchinson, 1928)

„We must delve into our roots and reconstruct what history has divided. We can't wait for them to approach us. We must reach out to them.“

—  Мустафа Кемаль Ататюрк
Context: Today the Soviet Union is a friend and an ally. We need this friendship. However, no one can know what will happen tomorrow. Just like the Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian Empires it may tear itself apart or shrink in size. Those peoples that it holds so tightly in its grip may one day slip away. The world may see a new balance of power. It is then that Turkey must know what to do. Ally Soviets have under their control our brothers with whom we share language, beliefs and roots. We must be prepared to embrace them. Being ready does not mean that we will sit quietly and wait. We must get ready. How does a people get prepared for such an endeavour? By strengthening the natural bridges that exist between us. Language is a bridge... Religion is a bridge... History is a bridge... We must delve into our roots and reconstruct what history has divided. We can't wait for them to approach us. We must reach out to them. Speech at Çankaya Pavilion (29 October 1933); quoted in Orta(daki) Asya Ülkeleri -Mustafa Balbay - Cumhuriyet Kitapları http://kitap.antoloji.com/kitap.asp?kitap=16216

„Humankind is made up of two sexes, women and men. Is it possible for humankind to grow by the improvement of only one part while the other part is ignored?“

—  Мустафа Кемаль Ататюрк
Context: Humankind is made up of two sexes, women and men. Is it possible for humankind to grow by the improvement of only one part while the other part is ignored? Is it possible that if half of a mass is tied to earth with chains that the other half can soar into skies? As quoted in "Atatürk" in Images of a Divided World (29 October 2006) http://jmilton6000.wordpress.com/2006/10/29/ataturk/ Variant translation: Humankind consists of two sexes, woman and man. Is it possible that a mass is improved by the improvement of only one part and the other ignored? Is it possible that if half of a mass is tied to earth with chains and the other half can soar into skies?
