I was sorry to hear of the passing of Muhammad Ali.  Things he has said both inspire me and make me smile.  I would be remiss to not add him to my week’s list of inspirational quotes. I noted the ones that I found funny and the one I quote quite often 🙂

 

Awesome Words From the Legendary Muhammad Ali


“If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it—then I can achieve it.” 

“It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe.”

“If you even dream of beating me you’d better wake up and apologize.”  (LOL)

“Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even.”

“I’m so mean, I make medicine sick.” (My favorite all time quote from him. I use this line often tongue in cheek)

“I’ve wrestled with alligators. I’ve tussled with a whale. I done handcuffed lightning. And throw thunder in jail.” (love this one)

“Live everyday as if it were your last because someday you’re going to be right.”

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

“I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion’.”

“What you’re thinking is what you’re becoming.”

“I’m so fast that last night I turned off the light switch in my hotel room and was in bed before the room was dark”. (LOL)
