Over the weekend Muhammad Ali passed away at the age of 74 in Scottsdale Arizona.
The Greatest, born Cassius Clay in Louisville, Kentucky, shined not only in the ring but was also a figure for civil rights. He then stood up for peace and equality throughout the world.
Ali was known for speaking his mind, and his words inspired so many and will continue to inspire people for decades…
“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”
“The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.”
“Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.”
“It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe.”
“Silence is golden when you can’t think of a good answer.”
“It’s just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.”
And of course “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.”
