Yılmaz Güney says
 “As a person who learns cinema in life school, it means a lot to win this award,
The most important thing is that I am sharing the awards with Costa Gavars and the Taviani brothers. The award is not given to me, but to all my people.” (statement after the Palme d’Or award was given to him)
 The essence of the problem is this: Either we will choose the path of revolution or we will choose to live by surrendering to the pressures and injustices of this order in one way or another. This kind of selection is a form of extinction.
Better to die as a freedom fighter than to live as a slave.
The real prison is the prison that man creates in his mind. The prison that limits life is that it should be destroyed at the first opportunity. To better understand the world.
I left my country to be free, not because I want to live, but to participate more effectively and actively in the fight for freedom and democracy.
The understanding that thinks of educating people between stone walls and iron bars and preventing their thoughts will be destroyed.
Our beard, which we could not cut due to lack of money, has become fashionable for the vagrant.
I said forgetting takes time, I was wrong. It takes heart, not time. He remained with you.
Those who wore overcoats missed the winter. Those who had bread waited for the evening, those who had sleep waited for the night. Death is calling me.
It is a thousand times better to be a failed man in life than to be a good, well-behaved bystander of life. It’s better to risk being a bad boxer than a good boxing spectator.
Tens of thousands, millions of people follow me, my goal is to be worthy of their love, that they are unaware of; I work to show things, to involve them in the social struggle by making films that will wake them from their sleep.
The sadness that licks my heart leaves happy dreams behind, dear.
Even in the most difficult and impossible times, the only way to succeed is to work.
Beauty is the result of a whole. For this reason, it is not easily seen, easily reached, not easily understood.
Life didn’t give us a chance to be happy, dear.
Friends! Are you aware that something is going on outside? Shake those who are asleep, awaken them. Tell everyone, the lights may go out soon. What will you do in the dark?
We also knew that the lover should buy cloves, but we were hungry, we ate the carnation money.
I am a fighting man. My cinema is also the cinema of a fight, the liberation struggle of my people.
I don’t live life for myself. And I’m not afraid of anything. I know what will happen to me. Despite everything, we will live in spite of the enemy. Because tomorrow is ours. We will die, but our children will carry the legacy we will leave in their hearts. And their hearts will not carry the fears under which we are crushed.
We were the people who are happy with little things before. Then they put something called love in our minds, we couldn’t recover.
I did not hurt anyone; They came knowing that I was fire.
I would like to write the fight on a leaf; for autumn to come, for leaves to fall. I would like to write anger on a cloud; so that it rains, so that the cloud disappears. I would like to write hate on the snow; for the sun to shine, for the snow to melt. And I would like to write friendship and love in the hearts of all newborn babies; to grow with them, to shake the whole world.
The most difficult prison is the prison created in one’s mind and must be destroyed at the first opportunity, in order to better understand life.
