Elvis Aaron Presley, známý také jako „Král Rock 'n' Rollu“ nebo zkráceně jako „Král (The King)“, byl americký zpěvák a herec. Dokázal skloubit inspiraci z černošského spirituálu, blues a country a stal se nejvýznamnější postavou amerického rock and rollu. Během své více než dvacet let trvající kariéry překonal mnoho rekordů prodeje desek a návštěvnosti koncertů.

„Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain't going away.“

— Elvis Presley
Another handwriten message on Elvis' King James -Bible [http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2188891/Elvis-bible-containing-handwritten-notes-star-expected-fetch-thousands-auction.html]

„When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was the hero of the comic book. I saw movies, and I was the hero in the movie. So every dream I ever dreamed, has come true a hundred times...“

— Elvis Presley
Context: I'd like to thank the Jaycees for electing me as one of their outstanding young men. When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was the hero of the comic book. I saw movies, and I was the hero in the movie. So every dream I ever dreamed, has come true a hundred times... And these gentlemen over here, these are the type of people who care, they're dedicated, and they realize that it is possible that they might be building the kingdom of heaven, it's not just too far fetched, from reality. I'd like to say that I learned very early in life that "Without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend — without a song." So I keep singing a song. Goodnight. Thank you. Acceptance speech for the 1970 Ten Outstanding Young Men of the Nation Award (16 January 1971), published in Elvis — Word for Word: What He Said, Exactly As He Said It (1999) by Jerry Osborne, p. 188

„The first time that I appeared on stage, it scared me to death. I really didn't know what all the yelling was about.“

— Elvis Presley
Context: The first time that I appeared on stage, it scared me to death. I really didn't know what all the yelling was about. I didn't realize that my body was moving. It's a natural thing to me. So to the manager backstage I said, "What'd I do? What'd I do?" And he said, "Whatever it is, go back and do it again." Interview (March/April 1972), as quoted in The Leading Men of MGM (2006) by Jane Ellen Wayne, p. 406

„It just happened. I like to sing, and well, I just started singing and folks just started listening.“

— Elvis Presley
Context: It just happened. I like to sing, and well, I just started singing and folks just started listening. I can't tell folks that I worked and learned and studied, and overcame disappointments, because I didn't.
