OUR GRATEFULNESS TO

TO Mss. ZEYNEP ÖZIS from ALAÇATI, 
Mr. MURAT KÜÇÜKÇAKIR and Mr. SABIT ERTÜR
FOR THEIR HELPFULNESS OF SHOWING AND TAKING US
TO THE MAGNIFICIENT OLIVE TREES IN EDREMIT


  

"I mean, you must take living so seriously
             that even at seventy, for example, you'll plant olive trees-
             and not for your children, either,
             but because although you fear death you don't believe it,
             because living, I mean, weighs heavier."

Extract from ON LIVING, NAZIM HIKMET (Turkish poet)


"Yani, öylesine ciddiye alacaksin ki yasamayi, 
yetmisinde bile, mesela, zeytin dikeceksin,
           hem de öyle çocuklara falan kalir diye degil, 
           ölmekten korktugun halde ölüme inanmadigin için,
                                      yasamak yani agir bastigindan."

YASAMAYA DAIR, NAZIM HIKMET





THANKS FOR YOUR COLABORATION
To Mr. Murat Küçükçakir
