Muhammad Ali

Muhammad Ali is a professional heavy weight boxer. He is generally considered the greatest heavy weight boxer in the sports history. At the age of 22 he won the world's  heavyweight championship in 1964 from Sonny Liston in a stunning fight. He is one of the most recognized sports figures in past 100 years. Real name Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr., was born on January 17, 1942 in Louisville, Kentucky.  Clay made his professional debut on October 29, 1960, winning a six-round decision over Tunney Hunsaker. He changed his name to Mohammad Ali when he was 23 years old.
Muhammad Ali Quote's:
  • 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.
  • You haven't learned the meaning of Friendship, ... It's not something you learn in schoolyou really haven't learned anything."
  • I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.' Muhammad

  • Life is a gamble. You can get hurt, but people die in plane crashes, lose their arms and legs in car accidents; people die every day. Same with fighters: some die, some get hurt, some go on. You just don't let yourself believe it will happen to you.

quotes FROM Leo nardo  da Vinci
I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.
water is the driving force of all nature.Life is pretty simple. You do some stuff most fails. Someworks. You do more of what works. If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is the doing something else.He who loves practice without theory is like the sailor who boards ship without a rudder and compass and never knows where he may cast.
