Quotes

#Quote
1 I got so many letters. I still get them now, and I'm always moved by them. It seemed extraordinary that soldiers would come back from the war and write to thank me for what I had done. It made me feel very humble, and that's why I've always done everything I can to thank them back.
2 You hear people go on about unpopular wars, but show me a popular one. Nobody in their right mind wants to go to war, but when it happens you have to get behind your troops.
3 I've never claimed to be a great singer but I've always given my best, and I've loved what I've done, and had a very good life.
