A sampling of wisdom from Muhammad Ali:

I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was. 

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

It’s lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believed in myself. 

I know I got it made while the masses of black people are catchin’ hell, but as long as they ain’t free, I ain’t free. 

We have one life; it soon will be past; what we do for God is all that will last. 

It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen. 

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

Hating people because of their color is wrong. And it doesn’t matter which color does the hating. It’s just plain wrong. 

Happy 69th Birthday to the another great man of conviction and faith- The Greatest Of All Time - Muhammad Ali.
