- Living is no laughing matter:
- you must live with great seriousness
- like a squirrel, for example-
- I mean without looking for something beyond and above living,
- I mean living must be your whole occupation.
- Yasamak sakaya gelmez,
- buyuk bir ciddiyetle yasayacaksin
- bir sincap gibi mesela,
- yani, yasamanin disinda ve otesinde hicbir sey beklemeden,
- yani butun isin gucun yasamak olacak.
