“Hesaplı hareket ettiğini zanneden ve onunla iftihar eyliyen dar kafalar; kurtulmağa, yükselmeğe elverişli hiç bir eser vücüda getirmezler. Kurtuluş ve yükselişi, ancak varlığına dayanan ve mülkü milletin gizli kapalı hazinelerini verimli hale getirmesini bilen, şahsi menfaatini millet menfaati uğruna feda eden, ruhu idealist, dimağı realist şahsiyetlerde aramalıdır.”
