Frank Sinatra quotes

1915-1998, American singer and actor

If you don't know the guy on the other side of the world, love him anyway because he's just
like you. He has the same dreams, the same hopes and fears. It's one world, pal. We're all
neighbors.

you.

Frank Sinatra

I'm supposed to have a Ph.D. on the subject of women. But the truth is I've flunked more

them.

I would like to be remembered as a man who had a wonderful time living his life, and who had
good friends, a fine family. I don't think I could ask for anything more than that, actually.

Frank Sinatra

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.
Frank Sinatra

Fear is the enemy of logic.
Frank Sinatra

You may be a puzzle, but I like the way the parts fit.
Frank Sinatra

I believe in you and me. I'm like Albert Schweitzer and Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein in
that I have a respect for life - in any form. I believe in nature, in the birds, the sea, the sky,
in everything I can see or that there is real evidence for. If these things are what you mean
by God, then I believe in God.
Frank Sinatra

Oh, I just wish someone would try to hurt you so I could kill them for you!

Sunday, cash me out.

how to use it.
Frank Sinatra

May you live to be 100, and the last voice you hear be mine.

blowing in my face all night.

my fellow man.

I like intelligent women. When you go out, it shouldn't be a staring contest.
Frank Sinatra

There are things about organized religion which I resent. Christ is revered as the Prince of
Peace, but more blood has been shed in His name than any other figure in history. You show
me one step forward in the name of religion and I'll show you a hundred retrogressions.
Remember, they were men of God who destroyed the educational treasures at Alexandria,
who perpetrated the Inquisition in Spain, who burned the witches at Salem.
Frank Sinatra

A man doesn't know what happiness is until he's married. By then it's too late.

I detest bad manners. If people are polite, I am. They shouldn't try to get away with not
being polite to me.
Frank Sinatra

I lived in a plenty tough neighborhood. When somebody called me a "dirty little Guinea," there
was only one thing to do - break his head. When I got older, I realized that you shouldn't do
it that way. I realized that you've got to do it through education. Children are not to blame.
It is the parents. How can a child know whether his playmate is an Italian, a Jew or Irish,
unless the parents have discussed it in the privacy of their homes.
Frank Sinatra

Never yawn in front of a lady.
Frank Sinatra

Here's to the confusion of our enemies!
Frank Sinatra

Stay alive, stay active, and get as much practice as you can.
Frank Sinatra

If I'd had as many women as I've been given credit for, I'd be in a jar in the Harvard Medical
School.
