"The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred with dust and sweat; who strives valiantly; who errs and may fall again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming. Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."
My favourite quote...Theodore Roosevelt I believe.
Not even sure, First I heard of it was today, but thought it was pretty damn cool. Especially for a 1-5 fighter lol
Joe, shoot me an email firstname.lastname@example.org when you get a chance. been awhile.
"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 last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will.
But the will must be stronger than the skill."
--Muhammad Ali --
fav fight quote:
I think it was Enson Inoe that said "Pain is only temporary, Glory lasts forever"
fav quote of all time:
"A man only has two choices in life: better start living or better start deing"
- The Shawshank Redemption
ps. that Theodore Roosevelt quote was awesome too
the complete quote:
"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."
"Citizenship in a Republic,"
Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910
How about this one:
"I paid a worker at New York's zoo to re-open it just for me and Robin. When we got to the gorilla cage there was 1 big silverback gorilla there just bullying all the other gorillas. They were so powerful but their eyes were like an innocent infant. I offered the attendant $10,000 to open the cage and let me smash that silverback's snotbox! He declined."
