I came across some great Ali quotes in the midst of some late night browsing last night.  Ali has been someone that I’ve admired for as long as I can remember.  At first I just sent them to a couple of friends who I knew could relate.  When I woke up this morning still thinking about them, I knew that I had to share them with all of my fellow thinkers.

“I am America. I am the part you won’t recognize, but get used to me. Black, confident, cocky – my name, not yours.  My religion, not yours.  My goals, my own.  Get used to me.”

Friendship… is not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything.”

I’m the most recognized and loved man that ever lived cuz there weren’t no satellites when Jesus and Moses were around, so people far away in the villages didn’t know about them.”

Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even.”

Silence is golden when you can’t think of a good answer.”

My way of joking is to tell the truth. That’s the funniest joke in the world.”

All I want now is to be a nice, clean gentleman.  I’ve proved my point.  Now I’m going to set an example for all the nice boys and girls.  I’m through talking.”
