Amália's Statements

“Só não posso é se me vem dizer: «ó Amália, francamente o Cochicho, francamente o É ou não É. Isso não é para si!» E depois talvez as mesmas pessoas: «Ó Amália, francamente o Alain, francamente o Camões!» Sempre vi que as pessoas não tem critério nenhum. Quem sabe aquilo que é para mim sou eu e o público sempre me acompanhou.” Amália Rodrigues

“Fui para fora com uma guitarra e uma viola, e fiz uma carreira internacional. Não foi o meu português, nem a minha falta de espectáculo. Foi a minha autenticidade que venceu.”
