Ali
« on: January 17, 2007, 12:15:53 PM »
I pray everyone had a blessed MLK day this monday... and with respect to Muhammad Ali's birthday today:

"I'm so fast that last night I turned off the light switch in my hotel room and got into bed before the room was dark."

-before George Foreman fight, 1974

"Cassius Clay is a slave name. I didn't choose it and I don't want it. I am Muhammad Ali, a free name. It means beloved of God, and I insist people use it when people speak to me and of me."

-announcing his conversion to the Muslim faith after first Liston fight

"I done wrestled with an alligator, I done tussled with a whale; handcuffed lightning, thrown thunder in jail; Only last week, I murdered a rock, injured a stone, hospitalized a brick; I'm so mean I make medicine sick."

- before Foreman fight, 1974

from Warrior Poet
