Zitat des Tages von Frank Sinatra:
People often remark that I'm pretty lucky. Luck is only important in so far as getting the chance to sell yourself at the right moment. After that, you've got to have talent and know how to use it.
Oh, I just wish someone would try to hurt you so I could kill them for you.
Whatever else has been said about me personally is unimportant. When I sing, I believe. I'm honest.
You treat a lady like a dame, and a dame like a lady.
Hell hath no fury like a hustler with a literary agent.
I am a thing of beauty.
Basically, I'm for anything that gets you through the night - be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniels.
I would like to be remembered as a man who had a wonderful time living life, a man who had good friends, fine family - and I don't think I could ask for anything more than that, actually.
Alcohol may be man's worst enemy, but the bible says love your enemy.
My father had a piano that was a nickelodeon - put a nickel, and the roller would play.
I'm gonna live till I die.
Rock 'n Roll: The most brutal, ugly, desperate, vicious form of expression it has been my misfortune to hear.
What I do with my life is of my own doing. I live it the best way I can. I've been criticized on many, many occasions, because of - acquaintances, and what have you.
Our civilization, such as it is, was shaped by religion, and the men who aspire to public office anyplace in the free world must make obeisance to God or risk immediate opprobrium.
You gotta love livin', baby, 'cause dyin' is a pain in the ass.
Don't get even, get mad.
Cock your hat - angles are attitudes.
I'm for whatever gets you through the night.
I'm not one of those complicated, mixed-up cats. I'm not looking for the secret to life... I just go on from day to day, taking what comes.
Throughout my career, if I have done anything, I have paid attention to every note and every word I sing - if I respect the song. If I cannot project this to a listener, I fail.
I like intelligent women. When you go out, it shouldn't be a staring contest.
The martial music of every sideburned delinquent on the face of the earth.
Dare to wear the foolish clown face.
The best revenge is massive success.
For my money, Tony Bennett is the best singer in the business. He excites me when I watch him. He moves me. He's the singer who gets across what the composer has in mind, and probably a little more.
I believe that God knows what each of us wants and needs. It's not necessary for us to make it to church on Sunday to reach Him. You can find Him anyplace. And if that sounds heretical, my source is pretty good: Matthew, Five to Seven, The Sermon on the Mount.
Nothing anybody's said or written about me ever bothers me, except when it does.
