Quotes
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.

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.

You need to source that. It is all true, but it still needs a source.

Ali was truly the greatest boxer. He floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee, indeed.

As a matter of fact no one since has followed his style.

To draw a musical analogy, he was like Wes Montgomery as a jazz guitarist who uniquely and skillfully played octaves like single notes, as no guitarist since could play like Wes, no boxer since Ali even tries to box like him.

The modern boxer is a lumbering, slow, witless punching bag.

They’ll NEVER be another Ali

You're right. There will never be another. His personality and kind face resonates through a couple of generations.

Watching ESPN and this is just sad. Crying at the bar as everybody laughs and drinks around me.


My childhood is over. This is not a good way to start the weekend.

Condolanceses. Truly an original.

God is great. Thanks for the memories, MHA. You will be missed. (No agenda, just acknowlegment of his beliefs).

CNN must have been putting together Muhammad Ali's video eulogy for months. It's well-produced and a lot of Ali's friends are speaking live on the network tonight.

Can we all agree right now that this is the FIRST time Ali has died ?

Or did somebody already start another Mandela Effect thread about it?

Virgins or no, the main thing is that his spirit consciousness is no longer "trapped" inside that vegetating shell of a body. I thank God for releasing Mr. Ali from prison!
