    • 1992, Pertev Nailı̂ Boratav, Zaman zaman içinde[1], page 38:
      Bin batmandan olsa kazan
      Ustager değil mi düzen
      Hayranlık esince cana
      Bengilik de gereğ olur.
      Even if the kettle weighs thousands of batmans
      Isn't the order skillful
      If the admiration blows to the soul
      The eternity also is indispensable.
