George Burns


If I paid $3 or $4 for a cigar, first I’d sleep with it.

Too bad that all the people who know how to run the country are busy driving taxicabs and cutting hair.

Life magazine (December 1979)

When I was young I was called a rugged individualist. When I was in my fifties I was considered eccentric. Here I am doing and saying the same things I did then and I’m labeled senile.

Just you and me Kid (1979)

Happiness is having a large, loving, caring close-knit family in another city.

At my age, flowers scare me.
