Below you will find our collection of inspirational, wise, and humorous old liverpool quotes, liverpool sayings, and liverpool proverbs, collected over the years from a variety of sources.


Liverpool was an industrial town, a poor town. The people fought hard for what they wanted to achieve and there was a hunger there, and that hunger has remained with the musicians.     

Pete Best

We were a savage little lot, Liverpool kids, not pacifist or vegetarian or anything. But I feel I've gone beyond that, and that it was immature to be so prejudiced and believe in all the stereotypes.     

Paul Mccartney

I think that Liverpool's particular modern history lends itself to the cinema better than London in many ways. When you go to Liverpool, you absorb that whole sound and humour.     

Rhys Ifans

Liverpool has always made me brave, choice-wise. It was a city that criticized anyone for taking a chance.     

David Morissey

Liverpool is a club with a big, big, big history, and all the clubs in the world have a big history if the present is not too successful. If you have never had success, then nobody knows how it is, but in Liverpool, everybody knows how it was.     

Jurgen Klopp

In England, football is a big thing to talk about, but Liverpool, it's a special place. You feel it when you make your first step.     

Jurgen Klopp

Because we were all from Liverpool, we favored people who were street people.     

George Harrison

My family are from Liverpool, so I have some twang there - I have a Midlands accent, and I was raised about an hour north of London, so my voice is a mess. Although, to American ears, it sounds like the crisp language of a queen's butler.     

John Oliver Hobbes

There are a lot of famous comedians from Liverpool, then obviously the Beatles, and the football club. That's what people in Liverpool are passionate about.     

Ian Rush

I mean, I was born the day war broke out, but I don't remember all the bombs though they did actually break up Liverpool, you know. I remember when I was a little older, there was big gaps in all the streets where houses used to be. We used to play over them.     

Ringo Starr

My family is from Liverpool, so I have some of those vowel sounds, I've got the slack tone of someone from Birmingham, and then I was raised in Bedford, which is just north of London. So my accent, if it's possible, makes even less sense to a Brit than to an American.     

John Oliver

I was in the game for the love of football - and I wanted to bring back happiness to the people of Liverpool.     

Bill Shankly

At Liverpool, winning is customary.

Stephen Graham

I realised I'd been spoiled at Liverpool. We were used to winning. In Italy I grew up as a person. I didn't enjoy the football, mind. It was very defensive, but I became a better player because of the work I had to do around the box. Off the pitch, I learned about what to eat and what to drink to be successful, and I learned about life.     

Ian Rush

We don't have any splits here. The players country is Liverpool Football Club and their language is football.      

Gerard Houllier

Liverpool players must play like a lion, give his all. There must be determination, commitment and resolve to be a Liverpool player.      

Gerard Houllier

You have to know what club you are playing for, or you just play for yourself. Every time I put on a Liverpool shirt, I know it is more than just a football game.      

Fernando Torres
