Das meiste Geld verdiene ich in Russland und in Paris. Die Menschen in diesen Ländern wollen unbedingt unterhalten werden und Neues und Ungewöhnliches sehen.
I make the most money, I think, in Russia and Paris, for the people of those countries are so willing to be amused, so eager to see something new and out of the ordinary.Russland, ParisHarry Houdini

But then, so far as I know, I am the only performer who ever pledged his assistants to secrecy, honor and allegiance under a notarial oath.Harry Houdini
I think that in a year I may retire. I cannot take my money with me when I die and I wish to enjoy it, with my family, while I live. I should prefer living in Germany to any other country, though I am an American, and am loyal to my country.Harry Houdini
