    * ON TURNING 80 'That's the time of your life when even your birthday suit needs pressing..'

    * ON TURNING 90 'You know you're getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.'

    * ON TURNING 100 ' I don't feel old. In fact I don't feel anything until noon. Then it's time for my nap.'

    * ON GIVING UP HIS EARLY CAREER, BOXING 'I ruined my hands in the ring ... the referee kept stepping on them.'

    * ON NEVER WINNING AN OSCAR 'Welcome to the Academy Awards or, as it's called at my home, 'Passover'.'

    * ON GOLF 'Golf is my profession. Show business is just to pay the green fees.'

    * ON PRESIDENTS ' I have performed for 12 presidents and entertained only six.'

    * ON WHY HE CHOSE SHOWBIZ FOR HIS CAREER ' When I was born, the doctor said to my mother, 'Congratulations You have an eight-pound ham'.'

    * ON RECEIVING THE CONGRESSIONAL GOLD MEDAL 'I feel very humble, but I think I have the strength of character to fight it.'

    * ON HIS FAMILY'S EARLY POVERTY 'Four of us slept in the one bed. When it ggot cold, mother threw on another brother.'

    * ON HIS SIX BROTHERS 'That's how I learned to dance. Waiting for the bathroom.'

    * ON HIS EARLY FAILURES 'I would not have had anything to eat if it wasn't for the stuff the audience threw at me.'

    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)
