Catherine Zeta-Jones

A week before Thanksgiving, my mother bought the turkey, frozen. Then she froze it some more. Then she let it thaw and cleaned it – and I mean really cleaned it, because nobody wanted a ‘dirty bird.’ She salt-and-peppered the turkey, buttered, paprika-ed, and nominally stuffed it.
Wesley Morris
Ground turkey is fantastic in a comforting classic – meatloaf.
Katie Lee
I realized that I didn't need nearly as many calories a

I realized that I didn’t need nearly as many calories as I’d grown accustomed to. I ate 100 to 200 calories every two hours or so, consumed healthy proteins (yogurt, lean meat, turkey jerky), and drank a gallon of water a day. And as my weight dropped, my energy soared.

Steve Hanke
The fact that Turkey, the U.S., and Russia and other countries are really interested in Cyprus because of its strategic location… the fact that Russians launder their money there to avoid sanctions, and the fact that key U.S. and Russia players were there – all make it really important for the Russia investigation.
Mike Quigley
My advice to anyone is to try to go cold turkey of make-up and fake tan and see how liberating it feels.
Emily Atack
That’s the ultimate goal of most turkey recipes: to create a great skin and stuffing to hide the fact that turkey meat, in its cooked state, is dry and flavorless. Does it have to be that way? No. We just have to focus on what the turkey is and what the turkey needs.
Alton Brown
No more turkey, but I’d like some more of the bread it ate.
Hank Ketcham
I think perhaps Pakistan can take the lead. Perhaps Turkey can as well, being part of Europe. But someone has to start talking about why the Muslim world has become a boiling pot and look beyond these cartoons to what the ideological reasons are for this divide.

I’m not a big turkey fan, but my husband loves it. Thanksgiving is his favorite meal.
Ruth Reichl

Crispin Blunt

Kevin McCarthy
Actually, I’ve taught creative writing in Turkey, at an English language university, where the students were native Turkish speakers, but they were writing their essays in English, and they were very interesting – even the sense of structure, the conventions of writing, the different styles of writing.
Elif Batuman
The dramatic rise of Turkey in the councils of world power was one of the main geopolitical developments of 2010.
Stephen Kinzer
I left Iran back in 1985. I lived in Turkey for a while, then I went to Germany. I joined a theater company there, and we toured the country.

When I did the cover of ‘Cosmo International,’ Turkey picked it up and I got a lot of backlash for it.

In the 20th century, the Muslim world created a vision of religious nationalism. Turkey, for example, had to be ethnically Turkish. Kurds, Armenians, other minorities didn’t have a place in such a vision of a nation-state.
Feisal Abdul Rauf
Turkey has never been colonized, so it remained as an i

Turkey has never been colonized, so it remained as an independent nation after the fall of the Ottoman Empire.
Mustafa Akyol
My birthday is always around Thanksgiving, and I always had to have turkey on my birthday. My mom was always, ‘Let’s celebrate your birthday on Thanksgiving.’ My other siblings got to have special dinners they liked. I resented turkey. For a long time, I hated turkey. I’ve kind of gotten over it.
Joey Chestnut
We eat the same breakfast every day. We are like robots. I always do two eggs over easy with turkey bacon – we enjoy the taste of it more than pork – and avocado. I carve it all up into a bowl so it’s like a slop, and I load it with salt and pepper and Cholula.
Chrissy Teigen
For decades, Turkey was widely viewed as a reliable NATO ally: prickly at times, but safely in America’s corner.
Stephen Kinzer
I started acting in second grade – my first role was in the Thanksgiving play. I was the Indian chasing the turkey. All the other mom’s encouraged my mom to get me into acting after that. Also, when I saw ‘The Sound of Music’ at Music Circus, I knew I wanted to act.
Brie Larson
I am fond of turkey with all the stuffing, which is my favourite!
Catherine Tresa
I need to eat before a workout. If I exercise in the morning, I’ll have a little oatmeal, cereal, or a hard-boiled egg with toast. If I go in the afternoon, I’ll eat a turkey sandwich with cheese for lunch.
Ana Ortiz
The Kurds will not be allowed to have an independent country because Turkey wouldn’t stand for it; they have their own Kurdish population.

Enes Kanter
Turkey is a European country, an Asian country, a Middle Eastern country, Balkan country, Caucasian country, neighbor to Africa, Black Sea country, Caspian Sea, all these.
Ahmet Davutoglu
Turkey, unlike chicken, has very elegant characteristics. It has more of a cache than chicken. Turkey is a delicacy, so it should be presented in such a way.
Todd English
For lunch, it’s really important to incorporate leafy greens so I’ll always try to have a salad of some sort with either chicken or some turkey or quinoa and then I love to snack on carrots and hummus, I love pretzels even.
Jenna Johnson
Without Ataturk’s vision, without his ambition and energy, without his astonishing boldness in sweeping away traditions accumulated over centuries, today’s Turkey would not exist, and the world would be much poorer.
Stephen Kinzer
The fictive structure, my work, my imagination, my books are about the details, the huge construction about culture, Islamic culture or modern Turkey. They’re all intertwined.
Orhan Pamuk
In many places around the world, including Turkey until the 1950s, Muslims didn’t have full freedom of religion. Even personal practice was not allowed, and they had to practice in secret.
Fethullah Gulen
I am neither a sociologist nor a psychologist, but you don’t have to be one to see that Turkey is in a vortex of problems, isolated from the world.
Fethullah Gulen
Forty percent of my portfolio is in the U.S. In the rest of the world, most of the places I invest in or invested in are Brazil, Russia, Germany with a little bit of Turkey, China, India, France and Israel sprinkled in there.
Fabrice Grinda
One night I went to this comedy club and paid a hard-earned $5 to get in, and every comic that came up was dry as an old turkey wishbone, as in not even close to being funny. When you’re broke and you pay $5 to see somebody, you want them to be funny.
Eddie Griffin
The Erdogan government’s first major step outside of the U.S. alliance was during the Bush Administration, when it wouldn’t let Washington use Turkey as a launching ground for U.S. troops entering Iraq in 2003.
Elliott Abrams
I see Turkey’s future as being in Europe, as one of many prosperous, tolerant, democratic countries.
Orhan Pamuk
The E.U. should want Turkey to be part of it.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan
I mean, Turkey is my country. You know, it’s my flag. That is where we’re raised… My family is born there. So that’s why, like, it’s tough to see that… your country don’t want you.
Enes Kanter
My family is a Jewish Iranian family, but I was born in Turkey and raised in Italy. So it’s a very mixed background.
Nouriel Roubini
I suppose people lost interest in me when I left Liverpool; but it wasn’t me who left, it was other people who left me. If people had continued to follow me, they would have seen my two good seasons in Turkey which caught the attention of Besiktas and Galatasaray.
Ryan Babel
Losing my dad made me more mature. Being an only child, I didn’t have the right to act childish. I had to step up. I was earning money already in Turkey. I felt like I needed to protect the family and protect my mom and be a man.
Zaza Pachulia
When my family was living in Tokyo, there was a year when we couldn’t go back to the States for Thanksgiving, and we went to Seoul. Mandu is a highly satisfying substitute for turkey and trimmings.
Min Jin Lee
Turkey wants to see Bashar al-Assad go and wants to kind of expand its sphere of influence into Turkey so its Ottoman glory or Ottoman past are once again project into the Syrian provinces. That’s kind of what Turkey’s vision is.
Richard Engel
No one can take away the experience of Yeltsin’s freedoms, but Russian democracy will never follow Western models: other authoritarian ‘controlled democracies’ – Turkey, Taiwan, Mexico – ultimately developed into democracies. But it took decades.
Simon Sebag Montefiore
It is unfair to ask Turkey to make a unilateral concession to take goods from Cyprus within the customs union when the E.U. is not open to northern Cyprus.
Ali Babacan
We are addressing duplication and complexity. At the same time, we are investing more in research and development, speeding up the time to market of new innovations, and expanding our sales force in markets where growth is to be found, like Turkey, Russia, the Mideast, China, and southeast Asia.
Frans van Houten
Romania strongly supports Turkey’s E.U. accession.
Victor Ponta
The N.B.A. provides a big platform to shed light on the

The N.B.A. provides a big platform to shed light on the human rights violations in Turkey and gives a voice to the thousands of people persecuted.
Enes Kanter
I’m one of these people that if I have a nice holiday – like I have had in Turkey repeatedly – I go back a lot.
Freema Agyeman
People look at me as sort of a diplomat for Turkey, which by nature, I’m not; I don’t want to be. It’s again about that playfulness. Being Turkey’s voice or representative is not playful, it’s not childlike; it makes me self-conscious, kills the child in me.
Orhan Pamuk
I think with lean cuts of chicken and beef, fish, turkey, ground beef and bison, you can’t go wrong with those.
Shannon Sharpe
I love lean meats like chicken, turkey. I’m obsessed with sushi and fish in general. I eat a lot of veggies and hummus.

Victor Ponta
We need to have Turkey respect democracy, human rights, and fundamental freedoms.
Federica Mogherini
Turkey was a peaceful county, Turkey was a lovely county.
Enes Kanter
We have had the exact same meal for Thanksgiving and Christmas since I can ever remember, and it’s so simple. It’s just turkey and mashed potatoes and green beans and stuffing. Just the basics, but it’s so good.
Brandi Cyrus
The booming popularity of alligator hunting, sparked by reality shows like the History Channel’s ‘Swamp People,’ is easy to understand: It’s an exotic blast of adrenaline. But there’s a culinary upside as well, with gator boasting a delicate light-pink meat that, to me, falls somewhere between veal and wild turkey.
Jonathan Miles
Growing up with a name that rhymes with turkey – and jerky – was no great fun. But, as an adult, I tell you, being globally unique in the age of Google can be extremely helpful.
Clay Shirky
There is going to be a nuclear arms race in the Middle East if Iran gets a nuclear weapon. And you are going to see it in Egypt, in Turkey, in the Emirates. All of those people will want that.
John Barrasso
We’ve stated very clearly that no negotiating chapters between the European Union and Turkey will be concluded before the Ankara Protocol is complied with: that’s to say before Turkey grants all E.U. member states, including Cyprus, access to its ports.
Angela Merkel
I don’t see a bright future for Turkey. It pains me. But I have some hope, I pray for it to be better. It is a blessed country, a NATO member, and was an E.U. candidate. These were things we wanted.
Fethullah Gulen
My parents were born into a secular country. They met in Turkey’s top medical school, moved to America in the nineteen-seventies, and became researchers and professors.
Elif Batuman
I was a promising graduate student. I landed a position as a professor before I even started to write my dissertation. While I prepared to start my new job, I decided that I would begin by studying the brine that bleeds sideways within the rocks that underlie the inner Aegean region of Turkey.
Hope Jahren
A genocide in Africa has not received the same attention that genocide in Europe or genocide in Turkey or genocide in other part of the world. There is still this kind of basic discrimination against the African people and the African problems.
Boutros Boutros-Ghali
I stopped with the red meat, let go of turkey and chicken, and then I held onto fish. When we finished ‘Wu-Tang Forever,’ I felt like I evolved and completely dived into veganism.
Turkey can be a bridge to regimes and actions the United States can’t reach. Turkey can talk to people the United States can’t talk to.
Stephen Kinzer
Marriage is anti-romantic – husband and wife are terms like ‘turkey’ and ‘goose.’ Worse, they denote ownership.
Thomas McGuane
Turkey is widely envied while there are very serious troubles in the world economy.
Ali Babacan
The key to Turkey’s success has been its ability to reinvent itself as times change.
Stephen Kinzer
All fraudulent elections should be condemned, including those in Turkey and Russia. And we need to be doubly mindful not to indulge amateur socialists in this country, because even though a Bernie Sanders presidency is a joke, the consequences of diet communism are deadly serious.
Lisa Kennedy Montgomery
I have never seen homosexual chicken or turkey.
Yahya Jammeh
Repeatedly opening the oven – or worse, taking out the turkey to baste it – slows down the momentum of cooking.
Alex Guarnaschelli
I only eat fish – no chicken, no turkey, just fish. I get all my protein from fish and egg whites.
Jack LaLanne
The U.S. must remember – as the Gadhafi loyalists have and Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Bangladesh are now realizing – that it cannot get into bed with groups affiliated with the jihadist movement.
Pete Hoekstra
I’ve been to McDonald’s in Spain, Greece, Turkey, Ireland, Norway, Denmark, Holland, Scotland, Hong Kong, Japan, Canada and Singapore. Despite that, I’m still without a fast food endorsement, which hurts a bit because you’re not really somebody unless someone is paying for your McDonald’s.
Robin Lopez
A Turkey under a dictatorial regime, providing haven to violent radicals and pushing its Kurdish citizens into desperation, would be a nightmare for Middle East security.
Fethullah Gulen
It’s really humbling and gratifying to see that people are finally realizing that we are talented and we have things to say and that our stories are just like your stories. There’s no reason that anybody from Wisconsin or Turkey can’t relate to ‘Atlanta.’
Brian Tyree Henry
The turkey oak can grow practically submerged within the wetlands of Mississippi, its leaves soft as a newborn’s skin.
Hope Jahren
I read, read enormously on all different fields of Isla

I read, read enormously on all different fields of Islamic thought, from philosophy to Islamic literature, poetry, exegeses, knowledge of the Hadith, the teachings of the prophet. That’s how I trained myself. And then I was appointed imam by a Sufi master from Istanbul, Turkey.
Feisal Abdul Rauf
The main problems with cooked ground turkey are, one, it doesn’t taste like much, and, two, it’s dry.
Claire Saffitz
We speak Turkish at home, and I can speak the language. I have a lot of family there – I try to fly to Turkey once a year when I have holidays.
Emre Can
I really don’t do much on the night of Thanksgiving other than bring the wine and carve the turkey. My contribution comes the day after, in the form of breakfast. I usually just forage through the leftovers for things that will go well with eggs.
Wylie Dufresne
Turkey is a safe country. Stay there.
Viktor Orban
The most important thing with turkey is to let it rest – most people don’t let it rest long enough. It will get juicier the longer you let it rest.
Wylie Dufresne
I was always told yogurt had to be sweet to appeal to Americans. But when people go to Turkey or Greece, within 15 minutes of their return, they start talking about how much they enjoyed the yogurt there.
Hamdi Ulukaya
As a South African, the idea of turkey was new to me. And confusing. It’s about the least flavorful bird on the planet.
Kimbal Musk
If I quit all the things I loved cold turkey, I knew it would only be so long before I went back to my old ways.
Rick Ross
Although I am small, ugly and dirty, I am highly ambitious, and at the slightest flattery, I immediately start to strut like a turkey.
Italo Calvino
Turkey is not an enemy of Israel. I have worked closely with the Turkish prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Ehud Olmert
It is very important that the world know that there have been 500 years of peaceful coexistence in Turkey between the Jews and Moslems.
Ahmet Ertegun
I hate flying. The first time I flew with my wife, Najat, was the first time I’d ever flown in my life, and that was just a short flight to Turkey. I spent the whole time with my shirt pulled over my head. Then I got used to it.
Sayed Kashua
The only agency of the federal government with a more demoralized workforce than Homeland Security is the Small Business Administration, a notorious turkey farm that should have been abolished years ago.
Timothy Noah
When we’re in London my family goes to mass on Christmas Eve. The next day Dad cooks the turkey on the barbecue, standing outside in the freezing cold.
Kate Nash
The secularists in Turkey haven’t underestimated religion, they just made the mistake of believing they could control it with the power of the army alone.
Orhan Pamuk
Turkey hunting is my passion because I love the thrill of calling them in.
Jim Kelly
Turkey’s solidarity with Hamas is not, of course, based on Arab nationalism, which as a non-Arab nation it does not support. It is instead based on a definition of the Mideast conflict as one between Jews and Muslims, precisely the position of Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda.
Elliott Abrams
I realised what goes on in the egg industry and the dairy industry, so then I was like, ‘That’s it! Going vegan!’ and I just kind of went cold turkey, basically.
Sadie Sink
Among leaders in Europe there are those who have prejudices against Turkey, like France and Germany.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan
Lean steak cuts provide an excellent source of high-quality protein, and the taste is second to none! Chicken and turkey are great as well, but I prefer steak myself.
Rich Froning Jr.
In 1736, Bakhchisaray had been burned to the ground by the Russians, and when Catherine II’s army completed the conquest of the peninsula in 1783, the last khan, Sahin Giray, took refuge in Turkey, where he was eventually executed.
Tim Cope
I feel pretty safe in saying that most Americans can’t tell you off the top of their head who the Kurds are or what the U.S. relationship with them is – let alone how that factors into Iran, Russia, China, Turkey and Syria.
Sharyl Attkisson
I think I’m going to give my baby her first food on Thanksgiving, make her some organic sweet potato. I’m very excited! It’s going to be a big day and my husband is in charge of the turkey – he’s the chef of the family!
Lily Aldridge
Turkey tail mushrooms have been used to treat various maladies for hundreds of years in Asia, Europe, and by indigenous peoples in North America. Records of turkey tail brewed as medicinal tea date from the early 15th century, during the Ming Dynasty in China.
Paul Stamets
My sense of humor is a turkey, and I pull it out of the oven and baste it in reality.
Tracy Morgan
In 1965, I was in Trabzon in eastern Turkey on a Fulbright scholarship. I would get up every morning and walk around the streets and look for photographs.
Mary Ellen Mark
I find that I get nervous before I play. Even sound checks can give me anxiety and screw with my mind. But as long as I can play a little acoustic guitar backstage if I’m feeling nervous, so I don’t have to walk in there cold turkey, I’ll be fine.
Kurt Vile
‘Winner’ is a commercial family entertainer with a strong emotional core. Teju couldn’t hold back his tears after watching the movie. The horse race portions were mostly shot in Turkey.
Rakul Preet Singh
When I look into the future and where I’d like to live, I’ll say Germany because I grew up there and like the discipline the people have. But my background is from Zonguldak in Turkey. I’m there a lot.
Mesut Ozil
Moreover, as the leadership of the House confirmed last year, the Administration remains opposed to a congressional resolution on the Armenian Genocide due to Turkish objections. This approach sends absolutely the wrong signal to Turkey and to the rest of the world.
Patrick J. Kennedy

I’m not a sandwich store that only sells turkey sandwiches. I sell a lot of different things.
Lady Gaga
I probably will not live to see Turkey become an exemplary democracy, but I pray that the downward authoritarian drift can be stopped before it is too late.
Fethullah Gulen
Generally I don’t find that basting does a lot of anything! I think what makes the most difference is treating the turkey ahead of time with a dry brine. It really does provide a very moist result.
Claire Saffitz
I’ve been playing professionally now for over 13 years – played in China, Turkey, Russia, and just was a part of the inaugural season in the States.
Jordan Larson
In February 2016, Russia arrested seven alleged ISIS militants who were plotting attacks in St. Petersburg and Moscow. The group included Russians and Central Asians and a ringleader who had come from Turkey.
Peter Bergen
Turkey initiated true multiparty elections in 1950 to join NATO. As a requirement of its membership, NATO can and should demand that Turkey honor its commitment to the alliance’s democratic norms.
Fethullah Gulen
Because of our Turkish roots, we still have a very strong relationship with Turkey.
Ilkay Gundogan
I love Bill Clinton. I think we should make him king. I’m talking the red robe, the turkey leg – everything.
Tim McGraw
I like a really natural looking body, so I’m not into muscles and looking like you just did 1,000 pull-ups and sit-ups and like you only eat lean turkey. That’s not for me. I just like people to look like people, and so I think it’s really attractive when men don’t have perfect bodies.
Nikki Reed
I don’t know anyone who hasn’t overcooked at least one turkey, myself included. It’s easy to do.
Alex Guarnaschelli
I can’t go out there and just eat turkey sandwiches and hamburgers all day because that’s not going to make my body perform at the level that it can.
Chris Hogan
I was fat-shamed the other day on a British newspaper. The headline was ‘Four Bellies and a Turkey Neck.’ They weren’t wrong. I looked shocking.
Hugh Grant
I’ve backpacked to countries like Italy and Turkey and observed beautiful scenery, but then I realized that beauty was always very close to me. It is here in Belitung Island, where the rivers, beaches and the terrain captivate my attention most.
Andrea Hirata
Those looking from Europe see Turkey as an economic success, whereas others from the Middle East see Turkey as a democratic success.
Ali Babacan
It wasn’t just Shia that would go to Tehran and see the commander of the Quds Force and others and the legitimate government leaders. It was also Kurdish leaders and Sunni Arabs who would even link up with Qassim Suleimani, the commander of the Quds Force – maybe not in Tehran but in Turkey or somewhere else.
David Petraeus
The fact of the matter is that whether it’s in London or Egypt or Turkey or New York or Washington, we have to pay the price of guarding ourself, which is internal vigilance.
John Reid
The commerce of India does not grow, nor does that of Portugal, or of Turkey; that but that of the protected countries does increase, as has been shown in the case of Spain, and can now be shown in that of Germany.
Henry Charles Carey
I have no desire to crow over anybody or to see anybody eating crow, figuratively or otherwise. We should all get together and make a country in which everybody can eat turkey whenever he pleases.
Harry S Truman
Turkey wants a policy of engagement exactly like President Obama’s new approach. Policy of engagement, less confrontation, less tense attitude, especially in the region.
