“What most strikes my wife and me—it may even sound a bit strange or even a bit silly—but what strikes us most is the holiness, the purity that we see represented in the lives of those who are associated with Hizmet.
They are not ashamed—by any means—in what they believe, to the One to whom they have committed their lives.”
“As an educator I may be a bit biased, but I think the focus on education that we see in Hizmet, that we see in Gulen and his teachings and his being, that focus on education which is critical to the work of Hizmet is itself the most critical work that can be done in this age.”
“Education is the opportunity to form young people, to form personalities, to form spirits as well as minds…”
“Forming young people in that way, providing that opportunity for them to become what God will have them be, and so, for them to be useable vessels for God as vicegerents in this age… what a wonderful task, what a difficult task, what a beautiful task..”
