Quotes

All music is folk music. I ain't never heard a horse sing a song.
- Louis Armstrong

I never tried to prove nothing, just wanted to give a good show. My life has always been my music, it's always come first, but the music ain't worth nothing if you can't lay it on the public. The main thing is to live for that audience, 'cause what you're there for is to please the people.
- Louis Armstrong

What we play is life.
- Louis Armstrong

When I go to the Gate, I'll play a duet with Gabriel. Yeah, we'll play 'Sleepy Time Down South' and 'Hello, Dolly!.' Then he can blow a couple that he's been playing up there all the time.
- Louis Armstrong

My whole life, my whole soul, my whole spirit is to blow that horn...
- Louis Armstrong

Musicians don't retire; they stop when there's no more music in them.
- Louis Armstrong

The memory of things gone is important to a jazz musician. Things like old folks singing in the moonlight in the back yard on a hot night or something said long ago.
- Louis Armstrong

There are some people that if they don't know, you can't tell them.
- Louis Armstrong

We all do 'do, re, mi,' but you have got to find the other notes yourself.
- Louis Armstrong
