Paul Anka's quotes

  • I had this talent for these stupid little teenage songs.
  • [on Frank Sinatra's unpredictable personality] If you went to dinner with Frank, you took your passport.
  • [as a youngster, performing between exotic dance numbers] I used to hang out in the dressing room and dig holes in the walls with the pocket knife I carried around with me so I could ogle the girls.
  • The worst thing you can do is predicate your life on making money and then saying 'I'm quitting', because then you die. You stand still. They throw dirt on you.
  • There's been a lot of songs, a lot of notes, but there was nothing like writing for Ol' Blue Eyes.
  • [on the effect of exploring rhythm and rhyme in the classics] People always respect Shakespeare, and the play's the thing. I stayed very viable as a writer, and my cred stayed very real. It separated me from all those other kids I grew up with.
  • [on winning sole custody of his son Ethan]It's the greatest day of my life. This was all about protecting Ethan. The system has worked.
