Ladies and gentlemen, my mother thanks you, my father thanks you, my sister thanks you, and I thank you!

— George M. Cohan

The most simplistic George M. Cohan quotes that may be undiscovered and unusual

Ev'ry heart beats true 'neath the Red, White and Blue


Hurried and worried until we're buried, and there's no curtain call, Lifes a very funny proposition after all.


You're a grand old flag! You're a high-flying flag, And forever in peace may you wave. You're the emblem of the land I love, The home of the free and the brave. Ev'ry heart beats true 'Neath the Red, White and Blue,' Where there's never a boast or brag. But should auld acquaintance be forgot, Keep your eye on the grand old flag.


Whatever you do kid, always serve it with a little dressing.


I don't care what they call me as long as they mention my name.


Many a bum show has been saved by the flag.


I can write better plays than any living danced, and dance better than any living playwright.


Don't tell 'em - SHOW 'em!


I don't care what you say about me, as long as you say something about me, and as long as you spell my name right.


As a composer I could never find use for over 4 or 5 notes in any musical number, and as a playwright most of my plays have two acts because i couldn't think of an idea for the third act.
