Before the Balkan Wars, Maxim Gorky declared: "Only the prophets can know whether Bulgaria will annex Macedonia or Macedonia will annex Bulgaria."

A. Savinsky, a former Russian plenipotentiary, notes in his memoir: "The Macedonians are a lively, mobile tribe, much more energetic and vital than the Bulgarians, and have always dominated them."

Konstantin Kondov (1866-1929) noted that the Macedonians made up half of the population in Sofia. Frenchman Léon Lamouche (1860-1945) noted that the rapid population growth in Sofia was due to the Macedonians.
