I was just looking on the net for some quotes and decided to ask on here. Any quotes that motivate you or make you feel better are allowed. Ill start with a few.


'Fortune favours the brave'-Publius Terrence

Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.
Muhammad Ali

'Every artist was first an amateur'-Ralph Waldo Emerson

What really motivates me is listentin to fighters introductions.but only when Michael buffet does it.

Oscar dela hoya and roy jones have the best ones, and floyds is a good one.

As for quotes it has to be Mike tysons..

My style is impetuous. My defense is impregnable, and I'm just ferocious. I want your heart. I want to eat his children. Praise be to Allah!"

I used to lift weights with a guy who, when I was stalling out, would growl, "Don't you lie to me." I hear that voice in my head even today, when I'm getting to that can't-lift-my-arms tired point.

Another one I keep in my head is, "You can't die from this. You'll pass out, first."

He was full of motivational quotes.

Dictionary is the only place that success comes before work. Hard work is the price we must pay for success. I think you can accomplish anything if you're willing to pay the price.

You beat me! :D That has to be the best song in the world to me. It looked great and sounded great in the Fight Night intro. That song is just awesome. Enough about other songs that get me motivated are And Still by Roy Jones Jr and Warrior Part 2 by Lloyd Banks, 50 Cent, Eminem, and Nate Dogg

Edit: Shells- Get Your Roll On is a great song too..Does anyone have the full version of it? I can't find it. I can only find the snippet of it.

"Im not supposed to succeed, im expected to die and bleed" - sir dyno, this quote from his rap song gets mw hyped cause it has a strong meaning.

"......you don't fight to win the trophy, you fight to win" - rocky juarez


songs that hype... this one was my walk-in music for my first pro fight

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream-and not make dreams your master;
If you can think-and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings-nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And-which is more-you'll be a Man, my son.

Rudyard Kipling.

This poem inspires me a lot.

This one inspires me:

"Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done. Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that!"
