Favorite quotes Muhammad Ali version
As long as politics has infiltrated (and kinda smeared) the Pipeline, I thought that I would give us all some things to really think about.
All from the man that I consider to be the sage of the 20th century:
•Rivers, ponds, lakes and streams - they all have different names, but they all contain water. Just as religions do - they all contain truths.
•A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.
•At home I am a nice guy: but I don't want the world to know. Humble people, I've found, don't get very far.
•Friendship... is not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.
•If they can make penicillin out of mouldy bread, they can sure make something out of you.
•It isn't the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it's the pebble in your shoe.
•It's lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believed in myself.
•It's the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.
•Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.
•The man who has no imagination has no wings.
•To be able to give away riches is mandatory if you wish to possess them. This is the only way that you will be truly rich.
•When you can whip any man in the world, you never know peace.
•Wars of nations are fought to change maps. But wars of poverty are fought to map change.
Salaam, Shalom, and God bless you, Champ!
