There is no doubt that he with all his qualities, is one of the greatest men known in the history of humanity . Historians of the world and philosophers agree without hesitation that he had the virtues of heroism and immense humanity at the utmost levels. His obvious superiorities in various perspectives, when compared to well-known personalities of history, are remarkable. Being both a man a of idea and a man of action is his superiority over all other geniuses. He was a leader who merged ideas and action in his personality. Kemalism, which forms the core of his opinions and ideas, is a rational philosophy of life freed from any dogmatic element. This realistic philosophy, which stems from the realities of the land and accepts the guidance of logic and science in case of problems, is the essence of both the Turkish War of Independence and the subsequent Turkish modernization movement.
Atatürk was a man of reality, common sense and delicacy. He always did the best and decided on the most beneficial in whatever he did, and whatever he decided to do. Thanks to his crafty reformism, which anticipates the tendencies of people well and knows how to infiltrate souls; common desires and tendencies easily became national goals . He trusted the high virtues of the Turkish Nation from the beginning to the end of his struggle, and believed that victories of any kind belonged to the nation. He relied on the love of the nation in all of his initiatives. He showed that he was a leader who could drag along the crowds with the help of his powerful personality and his strength of persuasion, which is the result of his anticipation of the truth. His ideas and opinions as the banner of the national resurrection and his immortal achievement had influences beyond the motherland and became a sentimental force for the struggle of independence and freedom of oppressed nations.
When Atatürk was describing the “Turkish Reform” which he created and founded, he said “This reform is a result of patriotism combined with great humanistic ambition. It is to teach children the art of seeing all the beauty and greatness and to feel mercy for all the misery at the same time.” He also regarded the whole world open-heartedly, sincerely and in a friendly manner with as the faithful founder of the reform he created.

The success he had in analyzing the conditions he was in and in removing obstacles constitutes another characteristic of Atatürk.
