"The man who has no imagination has no wings."
That quote has resonated throughout my life for as long as I can remember. To this day, it's probably the only quote that stays fresh in my mind whenever I need inspiration. Those were the words spoken by the great Muhammad Ali. He was a man who was as poetic as he was athletic. He gave his mind, body, and soul to the sport that treated him so viciously. He was an icon who withstood the test of time, and trust me, there were some terrible times. Nevertheless, he remained strong and diligent throughout it all. He was outspoken and rightfully so. He was a man who truly "shocked the world." I'm choosing not to say "Rest In Peace" because his spirit will never rest. His body may no longer be with us, but his soul will live and keep on fighting forever.
Not only did you fight against the toughest opponents in the ring, but also for freedom and equality in an unjust world. Your legacy brought hope and inspiration to millions.
Thank you Champ.
