I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.
My only fault is that I don't realize how great I really am.
I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.
At home I am a nice guy: but I don't want the world to know. Humble people, I've found, don't get very far.
Wars of nations are fought to change maps. But wars of poverty are fought to map change.
It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.
It isn't the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it's the pebble in your shoe.
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.
A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.
Age is whatever you think it is. You are as old as you think you are.
He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.
If you even dream of beating me you'd better wake up and apologise.
