Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.”   —   Muhammad Ali

(The Champ was more than the brash, rhyming taunter that he wanted everyone to see.  He had depth, and could be quite eloquent.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Happy 83rd Birthday, to my Dad in heaven!  Miss you, Dad.   —   YUR

Don’t quit.  Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.”   —   Muhammad Ali

(Perseverance is one thing.  Having a corner man who cares enough about you to throw in the towel, when you’re getting your ass beat in, is another.  Except for the rarest of occasions, I say it’s always best to live to fight another day.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If you even dream of beating me you’d better wake up and apologize.”   —   Muhammad Ali

(The man was able to make bombast into a veritable art form!  Once in a lifetime you see someone this luminescent.  Once in a bunch of lifetimes.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If other people are going to talk, conversation becomes impossible.”   —   James Whistler

(Sounds a little like he was a bit of a control freak.  You definitely need, at the very least, two people to make it a conversation.  Otherwise, it’s just a monologue.  But, I can sympathize with trying to have a quiet conversation while others around you are speaking loudly.  Be well, do good . . . and be considerate of others, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Yesterday, a commenter indicated my Cryptoquote Spoiler – or maybe just the quote itself – was incorrect.  My spoiler WAS correct, but that doesn’t mean that the quote that the Cryptoquote people used is correct.  Baudelaire was French, so something could have been lost in translation.  To me, it makes much more sense the way the Cryptoquote people laid it out.  You don’t need to be amusing to speak OF (or ABOUT) yourself.      YUR

It’s just a job.  Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand.  I beat people up.”   — Muhammad Ali

(The Greatest . . . of All Time!!!  I think that I shall never see, a heavyweight as awesome as Muhammad Ali.  With punches that flurried, and dazzling footwork.  His head feints and windmills turned tough guy to jerk.  His taunts were delivered, half grimace – half smile.  He knew he could goad you and stir up the bile.  He’d attack then retreat, because all the while.  Though your power be mighty, there was no denial.  He knew The Sweet Science was more about style!)   — YUR

I am the astronaut of boxing.  Joe Louis and Dempsey were just jet pilots.  I’m in a world of my own.”   — Muhammad Ali

(I can’t think of anyone with a greater combination of talent, intelligence, good looks, determination and sense of humor as this giant of a man.  Even without him saying it himself, he was – and is – and will always be . . . The Greatest . . . of all time!) —   YUR
