"I think it is extremely important for institutions like the Gülen Institute to bring people together and help them understand that we are all in the same boat. In today's world, you cannot be secure at the other's expense; you cannot be safe and prosperous at the other's expense."

"In a world that lacks direction, there can be no doubt that a pathfinder is needed, and that role is unlikely to be filled by those who now challenge democratic values....It is much more likely to be found in the values that lie at the heart of the Gülen Institute: the commitment to international dialog, an understanding of cultural diversity, support for human justice, and the love of peace."

"The problems of the world today would be easy to address if, on the global level, we could demonstrate respect for each other's religious perspectives. It is in this project that the Gülen Institute and those who share in its vision of interfaith dialog provide truly valuable leadership.”
