The legendary heavyweight boxing champ and civil-rights activist and amazing American who died last night could be just as devastating with his words as he was with his fists:
– "Hating people because of their color is wrong. And it doesn't matter which color does the hating. It's just plain wrong."
– "Champions aren't made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them — a desire, a dream, a vision."
– "I'm so fast that last night I turned off the light switch in my hotel room and was in bed before the room was dark."
– "He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life." MB
