Wednesday Words of Wisdom: Muhammad Ali

muhammad-ali-punch-01.jpegI could populate a year’s worth of these posts, one every day, with Ali quotes, but I’ve long thought that this one bears much of the essence of The Greatest as well as suggesting a path–perhaps the best path–to our own confident success. Did  Ali say he was the greatest because he was, or did he become the greatest because he said he was, and believed it?

I figured that if I said it enough, I would convince the world that I really was the greatest.  –Muhammad Ali

Wednesday Words of Wisdom: Plato

plato_bustI noted this Plato quote over at, one of my regular stops when jaunting through the interwebs, and I was inspired to rebirth the old weekly quotes posts.  It was either that or some kind of crude “hump day” thing each Wednesday, and I’m not some overgrown gone-to-seed frat boy so….

This one makes give me pause to consider not only my blogging penchant, but my entire personality.  I mean: ouch.

On the other hand, those of you who know me in the real, non-electrical world must understand why I like ol’ Plato’s look. Very handsome.

“Wise men speak because they have something to say; fools because they have to say something.”  –Plato
