8 Greatest Quotes From Muhammad “The Greatest” Ali

A round up of the legendary boxer’s words to live by

Ali before his fight with Leon Spinks, 1978

Beloved boxing legend Muhammad Ali has died at the age of 74. Though he’s best known for his champion fighting skills inside the ring, he was also a proud Muslim, fierce advocate for civil rights, railed against the Vietnam War, and knew how to dole out some powerhouse life advice. Here are just a few of his strong words to live by:


1. “The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.”

2. “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.”

3. “It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe.”

4. “Don’t count the days; make the days count.”

5. “The man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win the match when it’s even.”​

6. “It’s not bragging if you can back it up.”​

7. “It’s just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.”

8. “The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up.”

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
