I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.'
Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
I've failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
I run on the road long before I dance under the lights.
The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses - behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.
Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.
The best revenge is the massive success.
Today I will do what others won't, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can't.
Change your thoughts and you change your world.
Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.
Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.
Tough times never last, but tough people do.
So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.
