What was he like? What did Elvis think? What did he feel? Listen to him. Still, we can.

Read best Elvis Presley quotes and enjoy your day Yareah friends.

I was training to be an electrician. I suppose I got wired the wrong way round somewhere along the line.

Rock and roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can’t help but move to it. That’s what happens to me. I can’t help it.’

The Lord can give, and the Lord can take away. I might be herding sheep next year.

They put me on television. And the whole thing broke loose. It was wild, I tell ya for sure.

Rhythm is something you either have or don’t have, but when you have it, you have it all over.

I’m not trying to be sexy. It’s just my way of expressing myself when I move around.

My movements, ma’am, are all leg movements. I don’t do nothing with my body.

I like to sing ballads the way Eddie Fisher does and the way Perry Como does. But the way I’m singing now is what makes the money.

Since the beginning, it was just the same. The only difference, the crowds are bigger now.

Every time I think that I’m getting old, and gradually going to the grave, something else happens.

And our favorite: I have no use for bodyguards, but I have very specific use for two highly trained certified public accountants.

**The American icon Elvis Presley was born in Tupelo, Mississippi in 1935. His music career began in 1954. He began to work with Sam Phillips, the owner of Sun Records. Accompanied by guitarist Scotty Moore and bassist Bill Black. Afterwards, RCA Victor acquired his contract in a deal arranged by Colonel Tom Parker, who was to manage the singer for more than two decades.
