Inspirational Words of Wisdom From the Late Great Muhammad Ali

Heavyweight boxing champion, civil rights activist, Louisville native, poet, and just over all amazing guy, Muhammad Ali (Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr.) passed away Saturday morning at the age of 74.

When musicians die people usually post their lyrics in remembrance. But what do you do for a boxer? Post his stats? His KO’s? TKO’s? You could do that with any other boxer, but not Muhammad Ali. For one, because we’ve been posting his stats and remembering his boxing career for years. But the man was much more than a boxer. Every time he opened his mouth, art came flowing out.

“Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. His hands can’t hit what his eyes can’t see. Now you see me, now you don’t. George thinks he will, but I know he won’t.”

“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 know where I’m going and I know the truth, and I don’t have to be what you want me to be. I’m free to be what I want.”

“Go to College, stay in school. If they can make penicillin out of moldy bread, they can sure make something out of you.”

“Don’t count the days; make the days count.”

“I’ve never let anyone talk me into not believing in myself.”

“The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up.”

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

“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”

“It’s hard to be humble when you’re as great as I am.”

“You don’t really lose when you fight for what you believe in. You lose when you fail to fight for what you care about.”

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