15 Quotes by Muhammad Ali to reflect on

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

So here are 15 of the very best quotes by Muhammad Ali.

Quotes by Muhammad Ali:

  1. I am the greatest; I said that even before I knew I was. ~Muhammad Ali
  2. A man who views the world the same at 50 as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life. ~Muhammad Ali
  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
  9. At home I am a nice guy: but I don’t want the world to know. Humble people, I’ve found, don’t get very far. ~Muhammad Ali
  10. Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth. ~Muhammad Ali
  11. Don’t count the days; make the days count. ~Muhammad Ali
  12. It’s hard to be humble when you’re as great as I am. ~Muhammad Ali
  13. If you even dream of beating me you’d better wake up and apologize. ~Muhammad Ali
  14. Braggin’ is when a person says something and can’t do it. I do what I say. ~Muhammad Ali
  15. It’s not bragging if you can back it up. ~Muhammad Ali

15 Quotes by Marilyn Monroe to inspire you

Quotes by Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Monroe was a big star in her day, and much has been said and written about her since her death. Some of it was true, but mostly it was just a myth.

However, despite her untimely death, the legend of Marilyn Monroe lives on to this day. She died tragically young and in rather sad circumstances.

Nevertheless, she was much smarter than she appeared to be, and many of her observations were quite sharp and funny.

The 15 quotes by Marilyn Monroe included here, I think, will prove this point.

The quotes attributed to Marilyn Monroe illustrate her grasp of what it was to be a woman in what was then very much a man’s world. In many ways, women’s life experiences have changed very little, so her observations should serve as a source of inspiration for women everywhere, even now.

Here are the 15 quotes by Marilyn Monroe. So, take a few minutes to enjoy them.

Quotes by Marilyn Monroe:

  1. A smile is the best makeup a girl can wear. ~Marilyn Monroe
  2. A girl doesn’t need anyone who doesn’t need her. ~Marilyn Monroe
  3. Always, always, always believe in yourself. Because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? ~Marilyn Monroe
  4. I don’t mind living in a man’s world, as long as I can be a woman in it. ~Marilyn Monroe
  5. Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition. ~Marilyn Monroe
  6. I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control, and at times tough to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best. ~Marilyn Monroe
  7. Sometimes you just have to throw on a crown and remind them who they’re dealing with. ~Marilyn Monroe
  8. I am good but not an angel. I do sin but I am not the devil. I am just a small girl in a big world, trying to find someone to love. ~Marilyn Monroe
  9. Naturally, there are times when every woman likes to be flattered, to feel she is the most important thing in someone’s world. Only a man can paint this picture. ~Marilyn Monroe
  10. No one ever told me I was pretty when I was a little girl. All little girls should be told they’re pretty, even if they aren’t. ~Marilyn Monroe
  11. When it comes down to it, let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, then I’m already better than them anyway. ~Marilyn Monroe
  12. You better believe when the conversation is getting shorter with you, it’s getting longer with someone else. ~Marilyn Monroe
  13. A wise girl kisses but doesn’t love, listens but doesn’t believe, and leaves before she is left. ~Marilyn Monroe
  14. Respect is one of life’s greatest treasures. I mean, what does it all add up to if you don’t have that? ~Marilyn Monroe
  15. Sometimes I’ve been to a party where no one spoke to me for a whole evening. The men, frightened by their wives or sweeties, would give me a wide berth. And the ladies would gang up in a corner to discuss my dangerous character. ~Marilyn Monroe

21 quotes by women that will make you think

Quotes by WomenToday let’s explore some quotes by women. Not enough credit is given to women’s thinking and ideas, in my opinion.

The late, former British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher once said, If you want something said, ask a man, but if you want something done, ask a woman.”

Certainly, if you want anything done, then it’s probably better if you ask a woman. In my experience, they’ll do a good job for you, and they’ll do it when they say they’ll do it.

However, women are perfectly capable of saying things that are profound too. Sadly, men usually aren’t always listening, but that’s not a reason to ignore what some exceptional ladies had to say.

To prove the point, here are 21 quotes by women.

Quotes by Women:

  1. I was smart enough to go through any door that opened. ~Joan Rivers
  2. You can’t give up! If you give up, you’re like everybody else. ~Chris Evert
  3. I choose to make the rest of my life the best of my life ~Louise Hay
  4. In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different. ~Coco Chanel
  5. One cannot accomplish anything without fanaticism. ~Eva Perón
  6. Done is better than perfect. ~Sheryl Sandberg
  7. If you don’t risk anything, you risk even more. ~Erica Jong
  8. The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice. ~Peggy O’Mara
  9. If you don’t like the road you’re walking, start paving another one. ~Dolly Parton
  10. Knowing what must be done does away with fear. ~Rosa Parks
  11. Power’s not given to you. You have to take it. ~Beyoncé
  12. A surplus of effort could overcome a deficit of confidence. ~Sonia Sotomayor
  13. The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. ~Amelia Earhart
  14. You can’t please everyone, and you can’t make everyone like you. ~Katie Couric
  15. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement. ~Golda Meir
  16. You are the one who possesses the keys to your being. You carry the passport to your own happiness. ~Diane von Furstenberg
  17. The difference between successful people and others is how long they spend time feeling sorry for themselves. ~Barbara Corcoran
  18. I’d rather regret the things I’ve done than regret the things I haven’t done. ~Lucille Ball
  19. If you think taking care of yourself is selfish, change your mind. If you don’t, you’re simply ducking your responsibilities. ~Ann Richards
  20. One of the secrets to staying young is to always do things you don’t know how to do, to keep learning. ~Ruth Reichl
  21. Step out of the history that is holding you back. Step into the new story you are willing to create. ~Oprah Winfrey
