    'I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to'.

    'Only thing worse than watching a bad movie is being in one'

    'Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it you have it all over'.

    Two lines that cross my mind more than any other line by Elvis is the "O, what a friend we have in Jesus..." and "It's a hot time in Florida, rainy night in Georgia".... both are from the car segments of On Tour.....
    ‎"A year from now, you'll wish you had started today"

    my favourite quote of elvis would be..

    " ..Don't criticize what you dont understand , son..You never walked in that man's shoes.."

    And

    " I get lonesome sometimes, I get lonesome right in the middle of a crowd.."

    My Favorite Elvis Quote

    At Elvis' last preformance at the Lousiana Hayride Shows, Elvis said , "That it was ok if some people did not like him because some people did not like Jesus Christ and they killed him and he was a perfect man."

    My favorite Elvis quote would be:

    "I've been lucky. And you know something? I just feel sometimes like it's all a dream, like I'll rub my eyes and wake up and it'll all be over. I hope not. I hope it never ends. I hope it never ends."

    This my fave Elvis quote, it was writen by Elvis in vegas in 1976 it's kinda sad. "I don't know who to talk to any more. Or turn to. I only have myself and the lord. Help me lord to know the right thing."
    I did it my way.

    " When I started out... I had a little bitty guitar..... little bitty sideburns and a little shaky leg.... "

    " I'm actually going to play the guitar. I know three chords, believe it or not. I faked em all for years, man"

    "Alot of people say I'm too old to do this song ... Well. by God, you just watch me!"

    " This is a new song we're doing for the special. I hope you like it. It goes sumpn' like this......( no music starting.....) How do you like it so far? "


    Elvis reading cue cards " Elvis to talk about being filmed from the waist up. And not touching hands with body .... I mean.... body with hands...)


    I hope I got those right!
    Got my family, my kids, my books and my music, I'm good, yeah, I'm good.....

    "Some people tap their feet, some people snap their fingers, and some people sway back and forth.
    I just sorta do em all together, I guess. "

    There are too many...I write you just few.

    - Elvis in a piece of paper accidentaly found by a cleaning lady in his Las Vegas suite:

    "I feel so alone sometimes
    the night is quiet for me
    I would love to be able to sleep
    I'm glad everyone is gone now
    I will probably not rest tonight
    I have no need for all of this
    HELP ME, LORD!"


    - Ed Sullivan Show 1956:

    "Ladies and gentlemen....I'd like to say this...until we meet you again, may God bless you as he blessed me...thank you very much!"

    - "It ain't no saint, but I've tried never to do anything that would hurt my family or offend God...I figure all any kid needs hope and the feeling he or she belongs. If I could do or say anything that would give some kid that feeling, I would believe I had contributed something to the world"

    - "Man, I was tame compared to what they do now. Are you kidding? I didn't do anything but just jiggle"

    ...and of course my signature:

    May I include song lyrics in here?

    From T-R-O-U-B-L-E

    "Well, you talk about a woman: I?ve seen a lot of others
    But too much somethin' and not enough another
    You've got it all together like a lovin' machine
    You're lookin' like glory and walkin' like a dream"

    From I Can Help

    "If you've got a problem, I don't care what it is
    If you need a hand, I can assure you this:
    I can help, I've got two strong arms and I can help
    It would sure do me good to do you good;
    Let me help"
    Let the stars fade and fall, and I won't care at all, as long as I have you.
    Elvis...

    Hi Jouni!
    Personally I don't know the precise year...
    I've seen two different documentaries about Elvis, that reported the story of the cleaning lady and the piece of paper written by Elvis and found in the room with those sad sentences.. so I think it's true but they didn't tell the year...just the fact it happened in Las Vegas.
    I'd be curious to know more informations too.
    I don't think it's false since I heard about it twice but I've just finished to read the biography "Careless Love" and the book doesn't tell anything about it.
