10 of my favorite candid quotes by Elvis Presley

imagesL2565TCVShe was the world to me. She always believed in me. When my career got going I spent too much time away from her. There wasn’t a mother who loved her son more. There wasn’t a son who loved his mother more. She is my everything.

Rock and roll music has been around for about five years. The people like it. It’s selling. I don’t know how much longer it will last because years ago when the charleston was popular if you went up to those people and said it wouldn’t last they would not have believed you.

I have hopes and dreams just like everyone else. One day I want to have a wife. A family. Because that’s what is really important in life…family.

I’ve got folks from Kentucky. I played the armory there in Louisville. The police warned me and thought the crowd would go wild or they thought I would go wild (laughter) so the police filmed me. The people there are real nice and some of the most beautiful country in the world is in Kentucky.

Colonel do you know if we got anything in the works? An 8 millimeter disney movie.

I’ve been in love. About 3 or 4 times but it never worked out. Even when your heart is broke or hurt you still have to be open to love and believe it will happen. That’s what I do.

)In response to a question about his favorite male and female actors) I like the films by James Dean, Marlon Brando. I like Kim Novak.

I cared too much it made me physically ill. I don’t think they purposely wanted to hurt my career but when I got the script it was the same thing. I played the same characters with different names and locations. The movies made money but it got to a point, and most of the songs weren’t that good, that it made me sick. Sick to my stomach. Just sick but I had to do it because I had contracts.

I like to read. From newspaper to magazines to books. As a child I read comic books. I read some of them over and over. I read different books. Probably the first book I ever saw was the bible. I carry around books on tour and I always have my bible with me.

I’ve been lucky. I don’t know why God blessed me. I think about that a lot. Some people think I’m some sorta different from everyday people. I cry. I have fears. I have hopes and dreams. I hurt when I see bad things happen to people especially children. When I went to the hospitals to visit with them I put on a smile for them. I give them an autograph or a teddy bear. But as soon as I leave the hospital I break down. I don’t show it to them because they are going through enough. I feel. The public doesn’t see that often but people close to me have seen it and a lot of times it’s just me with my feelings.
