Mr. T Quotes:


  • "I am the best bodyguard, because I'll take a bullet, I'll take a stab wound, I'll take a hit upside the head; I'm like a Kamikaze pilot; The President got shot because his men relaxed." - Mr. T, in Sept. 1983 issue of Playboy
  • "I believe in the Golden Rule - The Man with the Gold... Rules."
  • "I pity the fool..." [his trademark quote]
  • "When I was growing up, my family was so poor we couldn't afford to pay attention."
  • "As a kid, I got three meals a day. Oatmeal, miss-a-meal and no meal."
  • "I think about my father being called 'boy', my uncle being called 'boy', my brother, coming back from Vietnam and being called 'boy'. So I questioned myself: 'What does a black man have to do before he's given the respect as a man?' So when I was 18 years old, when I was old enough to fight and die for my country, old enough to drink, old enough to vote, I said I was old enough to be called a man. I self-ordained myself Mr. T so the first word out of everybody's mouth is 'Mr.' That's a sign of respect that my father didn't get, that my brother didn't get, that my mother didn't get."
