“[Champions] have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.”

“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.”

. . .

“Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.”

. . .

“The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up.”

. . .

“To be a great champion you must believe you are the best. If you’re not, pretend you are.”

. . .

“If they can make penicillin out of moldy bread, then they can sure make something out of you.”

. . .

“The fight is won or lost far away from the witnesses, behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road; long before I dance under those lights.”

. . .

“If you even dream of beating me, you’d better wake up and apologize.”

. . .

“Live everyday as if it were your last because someday you’re going to be right.”
