Muhammed Ali was the most wonderful boxer in the world as everybody knows. Unfortunately he died yesterday… So in order to keep fresh his memory. We compile his quotes.
“I don’t count the sit-ups. I only start counting when it starts hurting because they’re the only ones that count. That’s what makes you a champion.”
“Silence is golden when you can’t think of a good answer.”
“I wish people would love everybody else the way they love me. It would be a better world.”
“It isn’t the mountains ahead that wear you down. It’s the pebble in your shoe.”
“The will must be stronger than the skill.” mentioned Muhammed Ali.
“The fight is won or lost far away from the witnesses, behind the lines, in the gym and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.”
‘I done wrestled with an alligator, I done tussled with a whale, handcuffed lightning, thrown thunder in jail; only last week I murdered a rock, injured a stone, hospitalized a brick. I’m so mean I make medicine sick.’
‘I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’
“I’m king of the world! I’m pretty! I’m a bad man! I shook up the world! I shook up the world! I shook up the world!” told Muhammed Ali.
“I’ve done my celebrating already. I said a prayer to Allah.”
“I told you all, all of my critics, that I was the greatest of all time. … Never make me the underdog until I’m about 50 years old.” said Muhammed Ali.
“My gloves are going to jail! They ain’t done nothin’ — yet.”
“All I can do is fight for truth and justice. I can’t save anybody. He’s a science fiction character, and I’m a real character.”
“Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. Rumble, young man, rumble.”
