List of Quincy Jones quotes.

Frank (Sinatra) took me to a whole new planet. I worked with him until he passed away in '98. He left me his ring. I never take it off. Now, when I go to Sicily, I don't need a passport. I just flash my ring.


I've always thought that a big laugh is a really loud noise from the soul saying, "Ain't that the truth."


(on Jack Nicholson) Jack had a great sense of humor. He still does. He's crazy and a beautiful guy. I always think it's nice when somebody who's paid his dues, like Jack, makes it. But he hasn't really changed much.
