it's a beautiful thing.

punch that you or your opponent throws there's always
a counter shot or two which you have to be ready to fire or defend.
- Alexis Arguello

When you put the interest of a kid on money instead

I made a gym, it's the best gym in Nicaragua,

- Alexis Arguello

When money comes into play then that's all it's about wanting money,
who's making the most who can get the most,
me, me me...
and in the end it screws up the person and the sport.
- Alexis Arguello

See, I respect boxing because it has given me so much
and that's why I will never allow anyone to mistreat
the sport of boxing if I can help it.

me to help my country even when it did me wrong,
have respect for my people, my family,
my nation and mankind.

go to the gym and also get good opponents as sparring
partners because I'm a big believer in that how you
train is how you will fight at least when it came to me that's how it worked.

Whatever it is. Just stop it.

As we let our light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence actually liberates others.

who have convictions that are unpopular.
-Bono

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
- Marianne Williamson

"Mother Teresa Prayer"
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
... Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you
of selfish, ulterior motives;
... Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some
false friends and some true enemies;
... Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
... Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
... Build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
... Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
... Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
... Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
We can do no great things - only small things with great love.
- although commonly attributed to Mother Teresa,
who kept a copy of this prayer on
the wall of her Calcutta orphanage,
this prayer was actually written by Kent Keith.

NO ONE is really different;
each of us is actually a member of the human race.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Almost nothing you worry about today
will matter in a hundred years.

to your great-grandchildren.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I actually enjoy being out of my depth - I thrive on it.
- Bono

In a bad marriage, friends are the invisible glue.
If we have enough friends, we may go on for years,
intending to leave, talking about leaving -
instead of actually getting up and leaving.
- Erica Jong

A diplomat is a person who can tell you to go to hell

- Blaine Lee

Few are the giants of the soul that actually feel
that the human race is their family circle.
- Freya Stark

I think one of the finest gifts I can give
my friends in the holiday season is to pause
with a long enough quality to actually SEE them.
My calm, unhurried presence communicates
this gift of a message, "I see you. I recognize you.
I remember our times of together
and am contributing right now to another quality memory.
I value you and honor and take the time,
right this moment to pause long enough to truly notice you."
- Mary Anne Radmacher

Each of us holds a different image of God.
There are as many perspectives on
the nature of God as there are people.
However much any of us may choose to argue,
or to fight and kill, for our point of view,
the nature of God is an unanswerable question.
Perhaps there is a specific answer,
that we will never learn - in this lifetime.
Perhaps the nature of God is so complex and multifaceted
that each view of God describes an aspect of the complex whole.
Or perhaps the nature of God is actually defined by our beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
