Muhammad Ali



Some of my favorite quotes from Muhammad Ali:



  • Service to others is the rent we pay for a room in heaven.


  • A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life. 

  • I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.


  • If they can make penicillin out of mouldy bread, they can sure make something out of you.



  • It's lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believed in myself.



  • It's the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.

Excellence


In Terry Stanford's final address to the Faculty of Duke University, circa, 1984:

"Everybody is seeking excellence, or claims to be. I sometimes think we have misused the word or weakened it by overuse. Excellence is not a brand of cheese. It is not even a place. It is more like a path or a guiding star. A single professor in a classroom in a small and otherwise inadequate college may seek excellence with as much validity as does the total institution of, say, the Johns Hopkins University. Every individual, every institution, can seek excellence in performance. That does not suggest by any means that they will all end at the same place, because excellence is not a destination. It is a spirit; it is a determination; it is a set of personal and institutional values.... "

James "Terry" Stanford, President of Duke University

L-O-V-E

From the movie "Akeelah and the Bee" a wonderful feel good movie.


"You know that feeling where everything feels right? Where you don't have to worry about tomorrow or yesterday, where you feel safe and know you're doing the best you can? There's a word for that, it's called love. L-O-V-E."
