The Soul Of A Butterfly By Muhammad Ali

A short autobiography where Muhammad Ali reflects on his life and career.

RATING: 3.9/5




• Think well of all, be patient with all, and try to find the good in all.

• The greatest victory in life is to rise above the material things that we once valued most.

• “By the time I was 18, I had already fought 108 amateur bouts. I won six Kentucky Golden Gloves Championships, Two National Golden Gloves tournaments, and two National AAU titles.”

• “To walk down a path where great men have been is a honor itself, for a few privileged men. But to blaze ones own trail unequaled to thee; is a tribute to greatness that few men shall see.” -Anonymous

• The man who views the world at fifty the same as he did when he was twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.

• “Of all the men I have fought. Liston was the scariest. Foreman was the most powerful, Patterson the most skillful. The toughest was Joe Frazier.”

• True success is reaching our potential without compromising our values.

• Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something deep inside—a desire, a dream, and a vision. They have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.

• Change is an inevitable part of life. The seasons change, our feelings change, our appearance will change, and our health will change. Life is easier when we accept these changes and recognizes how every moment of our journey is an important part of the growth of our soul.
