Frank Costello quotes

I don't want to be a product of my envionment (sic). I want my envionment(sic) to be a product of me. Years ago we had the church. That was only a way of saying - we had each other. The Knights of Columbus were real head-breakers; true guineas. They took over their piece of the city. Twenty years after an Irishman couldn't get a ****ing job, we had the presidency. May he rest in peace. That's what the ****s don't realize. If I got one thing against the black chappies, it's this - no one gives it to you, you have to take it.

When you decide to be something, you can be it. That's what they don't tell you in the church. When I was your age they would say we can become cops, or criminals. Today, what I'm saying to you is this: when you're facing a loaded gun, what's the difference?

No ticky, no laundry.

You get your period yet, Carmen?

You want some coke? There it is. Don't come up until you're numb.

She fell funny!
