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.”

Quote of the day
“Finding the occasional straw of truth awash in a great ocean of confusion and bamboozle requires intelligence, vigilance, dedication and courage. But if we don't practice these tough habits of thought, we cannot hope to solve the truly serious problems that face us - and we risk becoming a nation of suckers, up for grabs by the next charlatan who comes along.”
