1) Elvis Presley Quotes:

"When I first heard Elvis' voice I just knew that I wasn’t going to work for anybody; and nobody was going to be my boss...Hearing him for the first time was like busting out of jail."

Bob Dylan

"A lot has been written and said about why he was so great, but I think the best way to appreciate his greatness is just to go back and play some of the old records...Time has a way of being very unkind to old records, but Elvis' keep getting better and better."

Huey Lewis

"Elvis was the king. No doubt about it. People like myself, Mick Jagger and all the others only followed in his footsteps."

Rod Stewart

"He was a unique artist — an original in an area of imitators."

Mick Jagger

"Before Elvis, there was nothing."

John Lennon

"This boy had everything. He had the looks, the moves, the manager, and the talent. And he didn’t look like Mr. Ed like a lot of the rest of us did. In the way he looked, way he talked, way he acted — he really was different."

Carl Perkins

"I wasn’t just a fan, I was his brother. He said I was good and I said he was good; we never argued about that. Elvis was a hard worker, dedicated, and God loved him. Last time I saw him was at Graceland. We sang Old Blind Barnabus together, a gospel song. I love him and hope to see him in heaven. There’ll never be another like that soul brother.

James Brown

"He was the firstest with the mostest."

Roy Orbison

"That’s my idol, Elvis Presley. If you went to my house, you’d see pictures all over of Elvis. He’s just the greatest entertainer that ever lived. And I think it’s because he had such presence. When Elvis walked into a room, Elvis Presley was in the f---ing room. I don’t give a f--- who was in the room with him, Bogart, Marilyn Monroe."

Eddie Murphy

"He was ahead of his time because he had such deep feelings. He had the privilege of deep feelings because he was deeply loved by his mother, Gladys. He was able to appreciate profound beauty in sounds. And he started a musical revolution. They say all revolutions start from love."

Imelda Marcos

"Elvis was a complex and contradictory type of person. I mean, he had many sides to him. Elvis could not really bring himself to say I'm sorry to anybody.

If he got mad at them or did something that he knew he shouldn't have done, and he'd get over it in 30 minutes. But...instead of saying I'm sorry, instead of saying I'm sorry, he'd buy you something

The only time I ever heard him say I'm sorry, is he said it to me because of an argument, the one and only argument we ever had.

And it shocked me when he did it, because he just didn't do that. He'd go buy you something." — Lacker

5) Editor’s Notes & Humor:

Editor’s Note: .


The beautiful part of writing is that you don't have to get it right the first time, unlike, say, a brain surgeon. --Robert Cormier


I ACTUALLY LAUGHED OUT LOUD AT SOME OF THESE SHORT & SWEET STATEMENTS's actually what they DON'T say, that gets your imagination going about HOW these kids "learned" these "lessons".... Either they're really good, or I'm getting over the hill......


Don't flush the john when your dad's in the shower.
Lamar, age 10

Never ask for anything that costs more than $5 when your parents are doing taxes.
Carol, age 9

When your dad is mad and asks you, "Do I look stupid?" don't answer him.
Heather, age 16

Never tell your mom her diet's not working.
Michael, age 14

Don't pick on your sister when she's holding a baseball bat.
Joel, age 12

Grandma's age:
Little Johnny asked his grandma how old she was. Grandma
answered, "39 and holding." Johnny thought for a moment,
and then said, "And how old would you be if you let go?"

The Sunday school teacher asked, "Now, Johnny, tell me, do
you say prayers before eating?" "No sir," he replied, "We
don't have to. My mom is a good cook!"

The mood ring:
"My husband bought me a mood ring the other day. When I'm
in a good mood it turns green. When I'm in a bad mood, it
leaves a red mark on his forehead."

Turn-About is Fair:
When my three-year-old son opened the birthday gift from
his grandmother, he discovered a water pistol. He squealed
with delight and headed for the nearest sink. I was not so
pleased. I turned to my mother and said, "I'm surprised at
you. Don't you remember how we used to drive you crazy with
water guns?" My mother smiled and replied..."Oh, I remember."
