Frank Sinatra Quote
“I'm not unmindful of a man's seeming need for faith; I'm for anything that gets you through the night, be it prayer, tranquilizers, or a bottle of Jack Daniels. But to me religion is a deeply personal thing in which man and God go it alone together, without the witch doctor in the middle.”
Also quoted in Frank Sinatra, My Father (1986) by Nancy Sinatra, p. 201 - Playboy interview (1963)
“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.”
As quoted in: "Sinatra: retreat of the romantic" (W. H. Allen, 1968) by Arnold Shaw, p. 187
“I'm for anything that gets you through the night — be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniels.”

“...we no longer have intellectually satisfying arrangements in our educational system, in our arts, humanities or anything else; instead we have slogans and ideologies. An ideology is a religious or emotional expression; it is not an intellectual expression.”
