Words From a Legend

The boxing world has paid tribute to legendary heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali, on his birthday today.

Here are some of his quotes:

"Champions aren't made in gyms, champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill."
On Boxing

"A man who views the world the same at 50 as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life."
On Life

"Cassius Clay is a slave name. I didn't choose it and I don't want it. I am Muhammad Ali, a free name - it means beloved of God - and I insist people use it when people speak to me and of me."
Announcing his conversion to the Muslim faith after first Sonny Liston fight
