1.) “I’m young; I’m handsome; I’m fast. I can’t possibly be beat.”
2.) “Don’t count the days; make the days count.”
3.) “If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it—then I can achieve it.”
4.) “It’s hard to be humble when you’re as great as I am.”
5.) “It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe.”
6.) “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. His hands can’t hit what his eyes can’t see. Now you see me, now you don’t. George thinks he will, but I know he won’t.
7.) “If you even dream of beating me you’d better wake up and apologize.”
8.) “I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.”
9.) “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.”
10.) “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.”
11.) “I’ve wrestled with alligators. I’ve tussled with a whale. I done handcuffed lightning. And throw thunder in jail.”
12.) “Hating people because of their color is wrong. And it doesn’t matter which color does the hating. It’s just plain wrong.”
13.) “I’m not the greatest, I’m the double greatest.”
14.) “Live everyday as if it were your last because someday you’re going to be right.”
15.) “I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’”
