"They are trying to say, 'Wake up!' They are trying to say that we are unaware of the present moment -- that is, reality. All men's problems are caused by sleep. There is no such thing as conscious evil. Look around you! The Armenians are asleep in their foolish trust, and the Turks believe that two minus one equals three. Instead of being on this road to Hell, we should have escaped while there was time. The man who is awake can read signs - the massacres of 1895, the massacres in Adana and Tarsus of 1909 and now the threat again in 1915."
~The Road from Home by David Kherdian, chapter 3
