…how to have a sucessful marriage: Marry Gracie.
…his unique talent: …First you have to have a talent. You have to develop this talent. Then you have to marry her like I did!
…lack of talent: For thirty years my act consisted of one joke…and then she died.
…politics: Isn’t a shame that the people who know how to run the country are driving taxi cabs.
…his honesty: I lie a lot, but when I write about Gracie, I don’t have to lie. The truth is unbelievable enough.
…Jack Benny: When Jack Benny has a party, you not only bring your own scotch, you bring your own rocks.
…his singing talent: I love to sing, and I love to drink scotch. Most people would rather hear me drink scotch.
…talking: I drink coffee with my right hand, and I smoke with my left. But I talk with both hands.
…happiness: Happiness is a good martini, a good meal, a good cigar and a good woman . . . or a bad woman, depending on how much happiness you can stand.
…his attractiveness: When I was in Vegas women were throwing their hotel keys at me. But it was after they checked out.
…old age: Old age is when you resent the swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated because there are fewer articles to read.
