'Float like a butterfly, Sting like a bee, your hands can't hit, what your eyes can't see.' - Prior to his fight against Foreman in 1974.
'If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it – then I can achieve it.'
'I'm not the greatest; I'm the double greatest. Not only do I knock 'em out, I pick the round.'
'It's hard to be humble, when you're as great as I am.'
'To make America the greatest is my goal, so I beat the Russian and I beat the Pole. And for the USA won the medal of gold. The Greeks said you're better than the Cassius of old.' - He said this quote after he won the Olympic light-heavyweight gold medal at the 1960 Games in Rome.
"Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth."
'It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.'
'Live every day like it's your last because someday you're going to be right.'
'A man who views the world the same at 50 as he did at 20 has wasted thirty years of his life.'
'I done wrestled with an alligator, I done tussled with a whale, handcuffed lightning, thrown thunder in jail; only last week I murdered a rock, injured a stone, hospitalized a brick. I'm so mean I make medicine sick.' - Ali said this before the historic Rumble in the Jungle match that took place in 1974 in Zaire against George Foreman.
'Boxing is a lot of white men watching two black men beating each other up.'
'Cassius Clay is a slave name. I didn't choose it, and I didn't want it. I am Muhammad Ali, a free name, and I insist people using it when speaking to me and of me.'
'It will be a killer and a chiller and a thriller when I get the gorilla in Manila.' - Ali said this before the historic and legendary 'Thrilla in Manila' match against Joe Frazier in 1975.
'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.'
'Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.'
'Don't count the days; make the days count.'
'It's not bragging if you can back it up.'
'Champions aren't made in the 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.' - Ali said this prior to a fight against George Foreman in 1974.
'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.'
'If you even dream of beating me, you better wake up and apologize.'
'My way of joking is to tell the truth. That's the funniest joke in the world.'
'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.' - Ali said this in 1970 when he was convicted of draft evasion.
'The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses—behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.'
'He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.'
'It's lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believed in myself.'
