Muhammad Ali's quotes

  • Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.
  • I am an astronaut of boxing. Joe Louis and Jack Dempsey were just jet pilots. I'm in a world of my own.
  • 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.
  • When you're as great as I am, it's hard to be humble.
  • It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.
  • Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.
  • You can't hit what you can't see; I float like a butterfly and sting like a bee!
  • [after being rejected by the United States Army during the Vietnam War because he failed the "intelligence" test] I never said I was the smartest, I said I was the greatest.
  • I won a gold medal representing the USA at the Olympic Games in 1960, but when I came home, I still got treated like a nigger. There were restaurants I couldn't get served in. Some people kept calling me "boy".
  • Sonny Liston is too ugly to be world heavyweight champion!.
  • [on challenger Henry Cooper] If he talks some jive, I'll knock him out in round five.
  • I'm soooooooooooooooooo pretty!!!
  • I'm gonna float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, George [George Foreman] can't hit what his eyes can't see, now you see me, now you don't, he thinks he will but I know he won't.
  • My toughest fight was my first wife.
  • He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.
  • I ain't got nothing against them Vietcong.
  • The man who views the world at fifty the same way as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.
  • [after the Supreme Court overturned his conviction for draft evasion] I've done my celebrating already. I said a prayer to Allah.
  • [observation, 1984] What I suffered physically was worth what I've accomplished in life. A man who is not courageous enough to take risks will never accomplish anything in life.
  • [after defeating Sonny Liston] I'm king of the world! I'm pretty! I'm a bad man! I shook up the world! I shook up the world! I shook up the world!
  • My conscience won't let me go shoot my brother, or some darker people, some poor hungry people in the mud, for big powerful America. And shoot them for what? They never called me nigger. They never lynched me. They didn't put no dogs on me.
  • Cassius Clay is a slave name. I didn't choose it, and I didn't want it. I am Muhammad Ali, a free name, and I insist people using it when speaking to me and of me.
  • [1999, on being crowned Sports Personality of the Century by the BBC] I'd like to thank the British people for giving me this great welcome and thank you for this award. I had a good time boxing. I enjoyed it - and I may come back.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • It's not bragging if you can back it up.
