Motivational Quote - Muhammad Ali

"Rivers, ponds, lakes and streams — they all have different names, but they all contain water. Just as religions do — they all contain truths." - Muhammad Ali

Born Cassius Marcellus Clay, he was a 1960 Olympic gold medalist. He formalized his association with the Nation of Islam and adopted the Muslim name Muhammad Ali. Ali's flamboyant boxing style and outspoken stances on social issues made him a controversial figure during the turbulent 1960s and early 1970s. After beating Liston, he defended his title nine times, brashly proclaiming himself the “greatest of all time.” Before retiring in 1981 Ali compiled a 56–5 record and became the only man to ever win the heavyweight crown three times.

Ahead of his time, Ali's skills would rival today's champions.
