15 Quotes by Muhammad Ali

Many people imagine they’re famous but few experience genuine fame and the universal recognition that it brings with it.

One such person is the legendary, three-time world heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali.

Born Cassius Clay he rose above his humble beginnings to become one of the most recognisable and respected faces on the planet. He was also an inspiration to us all.

As well as being a respected sportsman he was also a respected thinker. Consequently the many memorable and thought-provoking quotes he left us continue to offer an insight into the personal philosophy that drove Muhammad Ali to become such a great champion.

I believe the 15 quotes by Muhammad Ali included here today prove my point.

Muhammad Ali was driven to become a champion and if his philosophy worked for him, then it can work for you too.

  3. He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life. ~Muhammad Ali
  4. 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. ~Muhammad Ali
  5. Hating people because of their colour is wrong. And it doesn’t matter which colour does the hating. It’s just plain wrong. ~Muhammad Ali
  6. 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. ~Muhammad Ali
  7. It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe. ~Muhammad Ali
  8. I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion. ~Muhammad Ali

7 inspirational quotes about religion

Faith can be a source of great comfort for people but it can also be a source of tension between people too. And yet look at the underlying principles of all the major world religions and it seems to me that essentially they are all the same.

Think about it. The major world religions provide people with a moral framework and a philosophy by which they can live decent and productive lives. In that sense I think religion is an essential part of civilization, surely? Without a moral framework to which people adhere, all there would be is barbarism.

However each religion underpins the culture of its adherents. By definition culture is simply the way things are done around here. That implies difference between groups of people and of course human beings often struggle to accept difference.

One of the most basic human needs is the need to feel secure. Unfortunately difference tends to makes people feel insecure, which creates a tension. Coupled with the emotional bond people feel towards their own religion this can create significant problems between groups of people, as we have seen all too often throughout the ages.

Yet we are all much more alike than we might imagine. If only we could focus more on those things we all have in common, perhaps the world would be a much better place. Well I think it would anyway.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about religion for you to consider today.

Today’s Quotes:

  1. I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit. ~Khalil Gibran
  2. Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich. ~Napoleon Bonaparte
  3. I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use. ~Galileo Galilei
  4. It is wonderful how much time good people spend fighting the devil. If they would only expend the same amount of energy loving their fellow men, the devil would die in his own tracks of ennui. ~Helen Keller
  5. Prayer does not change God, but it changes him who prays. ~Soren Kierkegaard
  6. My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness. ~Dalai Lama
  7. Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others. ~Buddha

7 inspirational quotes about fame

Does the idea of being famous appeal to you dear reader? If it does then you’re not alone. However before you chase fame it would be worth reflecting on today’s inspirational quotes about fame.

A lot of people crave fame and many strive constantly to be famous, giving little thought to the price they will pay should they achieve any significant degree of fame.

Real fame implies universal recognition; being recognised wherever you go, anywhere in the world. Muhammad Ali, Elvis Presley, John Lennon and Nelson Mandela were all examples of people who were truly famous and would be recognised anywhere.

To people with no experience of real fame, it might seem like a nice idea to think that wherever you go everyone will know you. However the novelty will wear off soon enough, once you realise the impact it has on your privacy and your ability to go about your daily life in ways that others take for granted.

Allow me to offer an example. A few years ago I had the privilege of having Jimmy Page sit opposite me in a crowded London coffee shop. He was minding his own business trying to do the things we all do; relax with his beverage of choice and so on. However being in the presence of a Rock music legend and icon is not something that was going to happen to me every day, so I couldn’t resist the temptation to invade his privacy with a few inane questions.

To his credit, his response was good-natured and very polite. However it must have been irritating for him nevertheless. Privately he was probably thinking, “Oh please, give me a break! I’m off duty and I just came in here for a quiet cup of coffee like everyone else.” For him, and many like him, that’s the price he continues to pay for his fame.

So if you’re chasing fame be prepared for the personal cost that will inevitably come with it. Fame might lead to riches for you but never forget that chains of gold are still chains.

You can do whatever you want but there is always a price to be paid.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about fame to reinforce today’s underlying message.

Today’s Quotes:

  1. I always want to say to people who want to be rich and famous, ‘try being rich first’. See if that doesn’t cover most of it. There’s not much downside to being rich, other than paying taxes and having your relatives ask you for money. But when you become famous, you end up with a 24-hour job. ~Bill Murray
  2. The hardest thing about being famous is that people are always nice to you. You’re in a conversation and everybody’s agreeing with what you’re saying – even if you say something totally crazy. You need people who can tell you what you don’t want to hear. ~Al Pacino
  3. The strangest part about being famous is you don’t get to give first impressions anymore. Everyone already has an impression of you before you meet them. ~Kristen Stewart
  4. A celebrity is a person who works hard all of their life to become well known, and then wears dark glasses to avoid being recognized. ~Fred Allen
  5. We all want to be famous people and the moment we want to be something we are no longer free. Jiddu Krishnamurti
  6. Fame is a fickle food upon a shifting plate. ~Emily Dickinson
  7. I like to hide behind the characters I play. Despite the public perception, I am a very private person who has a hard time with the fame thing. ~Angelina Jolie

7 inspirational quotes about parenting

Can there be any activity in life more important than parenting? Yet it is often undervalued in the modern age, or so it seems. Children are the future, so surely they should be our priority?

It seems to me that far too many people regard parenting almost as an inconvenience, to be fitted in around careers, lifestyle and a burning desire for personal fulfilment.

It is increasingly common now to see very young children accompanying adults on crowded commuter trains far too early in the morning, as parents rush to deposit them at a nursery or with a child-minder before the working day begins.

These little people will be the next generation. They are the people who will carry the baton forward to build a better tomorrow. So how they’re brought up really does matter in my opinion, particularly in those all-important pre-school years, which are critical to their development.

Is it really such a good idea to leave them with someone who couldn’t possibly have their best interests at heart in the way that parents should? You can decide for yourself dear reader but I must say I doubt it.

It is my opinion that children, once we have them, should be our priority. Their best interests should always take precedence over everything else, surely? Easier said than done I know and inevitably there has to be some balance and compromise.

However there is no more important job than being a parent and there is no greater satisfaction than seeing that little bundle of joy turn into a decent, civilised and well-adjusted adult.

I have had many fine experiences in my life but being a parent has been the best of them all. It hasn’t been easy of course and certainly I’ve made mistakes along the way. However the rewards have been well worth any sacrifices. And let us not forget, our children are the real legacy we give to the world.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about parenting to help you reflect on its importance.

Today’s Quotes:

  1. When you hold your baby in your arms the first time and you think of all the things you can say and do to influence him, it’s a tremendous responsibility. What you do with him can influence not only him but everyone he meets and not for a day or a month or a year but for time and eternity. ~Rose Kennedy
  2. To be a good father and mother requires that the parents defer many of their own needs and desires in favour of the needs of their children. As a consequence of this sacrifice, conscientious parents develop a nobility of character and learn to put into practice the selfless truths taught by the Savior himself. ~James E. Faust
  3. Every word, facial expression, gesture, or action on the part of a parent gives the child some message about self-worth. It is sad that so many parents don’t realize what messages they are sending. ~Virginia Satir
  4. There are times as a parent when you realize that your job is not to be the parent you always imagined you’d be, the parent you always wished you had. Your job is to be the parent your child needs, given the particulars of his or her own life and nature. ~Ayelet Waldman
  5. At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents. ~Jane D. Hull
  6. Don’t worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you. ~Robert Fulghum
  7. It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men. ~Frederick Douglass

21 thought-provoking quotes about money

Money can’t buy you love but it can make your life a little easier. It’s not everything of course but it’s up there with oxygen in terms of basic human needs. Money is important simply because life today would be impossible without it. There are few, if any, places on this planet where you could exist in any meaningful way without at least some money. Speaking personally, I wouldn’t want to try.

However it’s important to keep it all in perspective too. Achieving financial freedom depends on you taking good care of your money but it should not be at the expense of the people who should matter most to you, your loved ones. As with everything in life there must be a balance.

Money is important but people are more important. Our loved ones will be there when we’re infirm or incapacitated. Yes you can buy a dog but you can’t buy the wag of its tail, as they say. So never chase money at the expense of your loved ones. If you do, you’ll regret it I’m sure.

To help you keep it all in perspective here are 21 thought-provoking quotes about money:-

  6. Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that. ~Norman Vincent Peale

  8. You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you. ~Maya Angelou
  9. Buy when everyone else is selling and hold until everyone else is buying. That’s not just a catchy slogan. It’s the very essence of successful investing. ~J. Paul Getty
  10. If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability. ~Henry Ford

  20. If you took our top fifteen decisions out, we’d have a pretty average record. It wasn’t hyperactivity, but a hell of a lot of patience. You stuck to your principles and when opportunities came along, you pounced on them with vigour. ~Charlie Munger
  21. When buying shares, ask yourself, would you buy the whole company? ~Rene Rivkin

15 Quotes by Marilyn Monroe

Much has been said and written about Marilyn Monroe. Some of it was true but a lot of it was simply myth of course.

7 inspirational quotes about people

Today I offer you some quotes about people.

Love them or hate them we can’t live without them, can we? That’s because as human beings we’re social animals. We’re not solitary animals like cats. We live in communities and we need other people in our lives because we depend on each other.

So value the people in your life. Don’t neglect them; make time for them. Life is short and if you ever get really sick or infirm you will need them. Your career is all very well but it won’t take care of you in difficult times, your friends and family will.

Work is important of course but people are more important. So get the balance right because life goes by all too quickly and if people think you have no interest in them, one day you will find that they no longer have any interest in you.

Value your family and friends and make time to enjoy their company. If you have good family and friends you are wealthy indeed. Life is very special when you have other people. If you don’t believe me try loneliness. You’ll soon realise how much you enjoy the company of other people, regardless of how much they might drive you nuts on occasions.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about people to reinforce my point.

Today’s Quotes:

  1. Goodness is about character – integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people. ~Dennis Prager
  2. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. ~Maya Angelou
  3. Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. ~Marcel Proust
  4. People may hear your words but they feel your attitude. ~John C. Maxwell
  5. The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best. ~Epictetus
  6. I used to think that the worst thing in life was to end up alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel alone. ~Robin Williams
  7. Stay positive and happy. Work hard and don’t give up hope. Be open to criticism and keep learning. Surround yourself with happy, warm and genuine people. ~Tena Desae

21 thought-provoking quotes about opportunity

Perceived failure in the past can leave us feeling that we’ve blown our chances. That somehow we’re destined for nothing more than a series of unexceptional and relatively low paid jobs. For instance, this feeling would be typical of someone leaving the education system having little or nothing to show for their years in the classroom in terms of certificates and diplomas.

However always remember this; your future is not defined by your past. Mistakes made can be rectified. A perceived failure is not the end of the world it’s just an outcome you didn’t want. You can have as many chances to try again as you’re prepared to take.

Never forget, the future is an endless stream of opportunities. You can choose to take them, or not, and you can make your life whatever you want it to be. Focus on what you want and with determination and hard work it really can be yours.

So here are 21 thought-provoking quotes about opportunity to get you thinking dear reader.
