I've only had two rules: Do all you can and do it the best you can. It's the only way you ever get that feeling of accomplishing something.
Sitting in a rocker never appealed to me. Golf or fishing isn't as much fun as working.
I've read hundreds of cookbooks. Most of those cookbooks don't even tell you how to get a steak ready, how to bake biscuits or an apple pie.
There's no reason to be the richest man in the cemetery. You can't do any business from there.
I've read hundreds of cookbooks. For my money, they are the bird.
No hours, nor amount of labor, nor amount of money would deter me from giving the best that there was in me.
I always hired widows with children, because they had to work and didn't have any foolishness about them.

I don't fear that a man will wear out as quickly as he will rust out.
I could see it wasn't going to be easy. I couldn't give a franchise to any old greasy spoon. And I knew the chicken had to be cooked the way I told them to cook it if it was going to be as popular as it could be.
In 1968, 'Liberty Magazine' had an article about George Wallace in which he stated he would suggest me as a possible vice-presidential candidate, along with other choices such as 'Happy' Chandler and General Curtis LeMay. However, I am not interested in any political office in the United States or anywhere, now or back in 1968.
