To be a great champion you must believe you are the best.  If you’re not, pretend you are.
  —  Muhammad Ali
Every time I stepped on the field, I believed my team was going to walk off the winner, somehow, some way.
  —  Roger Staubach
If you believe in yourself, have dedication and pride and never quit, you’ll be a winner.  The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.

I got a feeling I was born for a purpose.  I don’t know what I’m here for.  I just feel abnormal, a different kind of man.  I don’t know why I was born.  I’m just here.  A young man rumbling.  I’ve always had that feeling since I was a little boy.
   —  Muhammad Ali
[Happy Birthday, James!  Like your sisters, you were born to bring joy to the hearts of your Mum and me.  I’m sure you were born for other stuff, too, but the joy is all that matters to us.  We love you!  —  Mum and Dad  (KMAB)]

Hating people because of their color is wrong.  And it doesn’t matter which color does the hating.  It’s just plain wrong.

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.

Hi Princess,
Here’s three quotes for you:
I have been complimented many times and they always embarrass me; I always feel that they have not said enough.
   –  Mark Twain
From a speech given on 23 September 1907
[A good day!  —  KMAB]
Ten people who speak make more noise than ten thousand who are silent.
   ―  Napoléon Bonaparte
[Be heard!  —  KMAB]
Live everyday as if it were your last because someday you’re going to be right.
   ―  Muhammad Ali
[Make every day count…   —  KMAB]
Happy Birthday!
We love you always,
Mum and Dad
