Liberace quotes

Responding to a negative review of one of his performances): "Your review hurt me! I cried all the way to the bank!"

Too many young performers have forgotten that the most important part of show business is not the second word, it's the first. Without the show there's no business.

(Commenting on a famous quote of his): "You know that bank I cried all the way to? I bought it!"

[From his 1973 autobiography]: "Youthfulness, I guess, will always remain the thing that fans want to see in their favorite performers. They don't like to see them grow old. Possibly because it reminds them that the same thing is happening to them."

(Spoken on stage): "I didn't get dressed like this to go unnoticed."

[on playing Radio City Music Hall in the Easter show:] "You can have either the Resurrection or you can have Liberace. But you can't have both."

(When asked how he could play the piano while wearing so many rings): "Very well, thank you."

What's better than roses on your piano? Tulips on your organ.

At the 1983 Academy Awards: "I made my greatest contribution to motion pictures years ago. I stopped making them."

[in 1959 he won a libel case against the London "Daily Mirror" tabloid. What did he do with his damages?] "I cried all the way to the bank"

Gee, you've been such a wonderful audience that I don't like to take your money. But I will!

Of course, I couldn't go out in the street in clothes like this, I'd get picked up. Come to think of it, it might be fun.

The difference between men and boys is the price of their toys.
