The Gospel of Elvis

"I wouldn't call any art bad, though there's a lot of it I don't get. I like realism though... I can admire a good house paintin' job."

"Somethin' can be real interestin' or different when it starts out, but if it can't change it's gonna die out like Hula Hoops, or slow down a lot, like Silly Putty."

"Somebody does somethin' stupid, that's human. They don't stop when they see it's wrong, that's a fool."

"Only thing worse than watchin' a bad movie is bein' in one."

"I don't like any woman who I think might be able to outwrassle me."

"Nothin' wrong with your knees shakin'. When I first shook, it was half nervousness, half movin' to the beat... and look what it did for me."

"The world is more alive at night. It's like God ain't lookin'..."

"I have no need for bodyguards, but I have very specific uses for two highly trained certified public accountants."

"There's no escapin' it. I don't care who you are or what you're worth: there's trouble at every level of life."

"Everyboy's nuts. Some of us just see it more clearly."

The "certified public accountants" one doesn`t sound like an Elvis quote to me!.....Am I wrong?

No I don't think you are Jack....it struck me wrong too. He wasn't that concerned about money.

"Only one thing worse than watchin`a bad movie is bein` in one".....now that sounds like something Elvis might have said!........

Sleepy Jack, I agree with both your posts. Now, my favourite quote is ;"The world is more alive at night.It's like God ain't lookin!.." Perfect! (y) Oh, by the way, nice avatar, SleepyJack!

Most of these are bogus.

Especially this one: "I have no need for bodyguards, but I have very specific uses for two highly trained certified public accountants."

Please ... :rolleyes:

That book is one of the worst ever, IMO. A rip-off.
