Favorites Quotes by Tony Danza

Favorite Quote 1 by Tony Danza

This culture is antithetical in everything it says to the kids. I don’t want to pick on ‘Jersey Shore,’ but it’s pretty clear. I would tell the kids good behavior, and hard work will pay off, and then they go home and watch T.V. and go, ‘Oh, that’s not true.’”

Favorite Quote 3 by Tony Danza

I love to make soups. My father used to say, ‘There’s nothing like a nice bowl of soup.’ One of my favorites is… ready? Broccolini, white bean, and hot Italian sausage soup. I’ve used escarole. Escarole in beans is unbelievable, or you can use bok choy. You can fool around. That’s one of my good ones.
