1922_Aleksandar Stamboliyski, Bulgarian Prime Minister

Who thinks about Macedonia? We Bulgarians do not talk about Macedonia, but others speak and think about it – they are the Macedonians themselves … Do not forget that Macedonians really are like the ‘Slavic Irish’ – in them the national consciousness is strongly developed and so that is how their fighters are born.

1922_Ferdinand Schevill – ‘The History of the Balkan Peninsula’, Pg. 422.

These Slavs may properly be considered as a special Macedonian group, but since they were closely related to both Bulgars and Serbs and had, moreover, in the past been usually incorporated in either the Bulgar or Serb state, they inevitably became the object of both Bulgar and Serb aspirations and an apple of bitter discord between these rival nationalities. As…

Because Macedonia is the reason for many troubles between Greece, Bulgaria and Serbia, why wouldn’t we create an independent Macedonia? After all, the Macedonians do not recognize any nationality except Macedonian.

1901_Les Reforms

The salvation of the Balkan peoples is in the autonomy of Macedonia. Macedonians want this autonomy because they see it as a solid guarantee for the peace, tranquility and fraternal life of the inhabitants of the Balkans. A shared Macedonia would be the source of countless misfortunes, an autonomous Macedonia would be a hotbed of civilization, the rendezvous of the…

‘What language do you speak?’ I asked the peasant… ‘I am a Macedonian,’ he replies, ‘you know, the Serbs maintain that our language is a Serbian dialect, the Bulgarians say that we speak Bulgarian. What can you do about it?’

We wonder how many Macedonians — real Macedonians — attended the so-called Macedonian meeting recently held in opposition to the cause of Macedonian emancipation in Athens. Possibly one, probably none…But all the distinguished phil- Hellenists in the world, backed by all the pseudo-Macedonians in Greece, cannot get over the fact that Macedonia is in a frightful state of disorder and…

1938_Andre Vaillant – ‘The Problem of the Macedonian Slav’, Bulletein of the Linguistic Society of Paris, Vol. 39, 2 (No. 116), Pg. 195

The concept of ‘Macedonian Slavic’ is confusing only for those who want it to be. Macedonian Slavic is to such an extent a reality that there existed in the nineteenth century a Macedonian literary language, the language of a quite limited scholarly literature but of a voluminous popular literature; and one is not dealing here with documents of folklore such…

My place by the sea hospital was now filled up by a physician, a Macedonian, who had studied at Padua: He told me that in the year 1739, the last year of the Turkish War, his countrymen, the Macedonian Christians, had assembled a body of between thirty and forty thousand men, with a design to free themselves from Turkish slavery.

1924_Pupil’s Father in Macedonia

Don’t expect from me that I feel myself to be a Serb. The Bulgarians have put it into my head for an eternity that I am a Bulgarian. The only thing that I can now say is that I am a Macedonian. Take my children, educate them as Serbs, and they will become Serbs. I have nothing against it. But…

They are fiery eyed men… who live for nothing else than Macedonia, and who, if they thought all hope of freeing it were lost, would scarcely hesitate, like passionate and despairing lovers, to destroy themselves, life having lost for them its sole purpose.

Northwards into Macedonia pure Greeks are no longer to be found. All the communities which are included under that designation are Wallachs; or Romounoi, as they call themselves – Greco-Wallachs, as they are called by the Hellenes.

1899_Léon Lamouche – ‘The Balkan Peninsula’, Pg. 21, 23

In Macedonia, the nationality of the Slavs, who form the great majority of the population, has been, especially since 1878, the object of passionate discussions between the Serbs and the Bulgarians who claim each for his race, the totality of these Macedonian Slavs.   За секој непристрасен набљудувач, Словените во Македонија не се Бугари и не се Срби.   Изворен…

Should Greece become a great state, of course it will in some degree assist in preventing Russia from getting dominion in the Mediterranean; and…

The Macedonians to the Turke What just and equal peace can there be betwixt thee and the Macedonians: we desire and endeavor to defend our country, and our laws; thou not content with thine own, thirstest after other kingdoms by force of arms, and seekest to stretch out thine empire beyond thy bounds: we cannot but speak touching our common-wealth,…
