Don Rickles Quotes If I were to insult people and mean it, that wouldn't be funny. Whatever you do to gain success, you have to hang in there and hope good things happen. Always think positive.

Make yourself at home - hit somebody. [about Sammy Davis Jr.] You can't get Negro help like that anymore. Wow, to have a guy who can sing, dance - and dust!
