You've got to know your limitations. I don't know what your limitations are. I found out what mine were when I was twelve. I found out that there weren't too many limitations, if I did it my way.
Don't complain because you don't have. Enjoy what you've got.
Your life is a reflection, you don't get what you want, you get what you are. You got to be it to see it
When you've got something to prove, there's nothing greater than a challenge.
I have been a believer in the magic of language since, at a very early age, I discovered that some words got me into trouble and others got me out.
The things that have always been important: to be a good man, to try to live my life the way God would have me, to turn it over to Him that His will might be worked in my life, to do my work without looking back, to give it all I've got, and to take pride in my work as an honest performer.
Do not compromise yourself. You are all you have got.
Humor is laughing at what you haven't got when you ought to have it.
You've got a song you're singing from your gut, you want that audience to feel it in their gut. And you've got to make them think that you're one of them sitting out there with them too. They've got to be able to relate to what you're doing.
It takes more than just a good looking body. You've got to have the heart and soul to go with it.

I got fame and fortune, and I lost my sense of reasoning.
That was the big thing when I was growing up, singing on the radio. The extent of my dream was to sing on the radio station in Memphis. Even when I got out of the Air Force in 1954, I came right back to Memphis and started knocking on doors at the radio station.
Don't cheat the world of your contribution. Give it all you've got.
