At the sea front is a park, with some statues and monuments of varying quality.

Could someone help me translate the text? I have the feeling the first part reads somewhat like "If one does not master knowledge one can not generate ideas", the translation of the second part and more was supplied by a guest whom I thank for the assistance (see message below).

the translation of part 1 is correct. the second part would be "we have been shot, my people, don't forget us". it is from a poem by mumcu. mumcu was a prominent liberal journalist from cumhuriyet newspaper. he was assassinated in 1993 in a bomb attack.
