  3. Sheikh Edebali’s advice to his disciple and son-in-law Osman Ghazi ( who founded, shaped and developed Ottoman administration and rule ) :

    O my son!
    Now you’re Bey (King).

    From now on, wrath is for us;
    for you, calmness!

    For us to be offended;
    for you to please!

    For us to accuse;
    for you to endure!

    For us, helplessness and error;
    for you, tolerance!

    For us, quarrel;
    for you, justice!

    For us, envy, rumour, slander;
    for you, forgiveness!

    O my son!

    From now on, it is for us to divide;
    for you to unite!

    For us, sloth;
    for you, warning and encouragement!

    O my son!

    Be patient, a flower does not bloom before its time.
    Never forget: Let man flourish, and the state will also flourish!

    O my son!

    Your burden is heavy, your task hard, your power hangs on a hair!
    May God be your helper!
