Quote of the Day/Week- Muhammad Ali

Last month, we quoted boxing great Muhammad Ali, who turned 70 in January, on our sister blog "Politics, Culture and Other Wastes of Time" in honor of Black History Month.

Today, we are quipping Ali as we continue to quote American athletes who won gold or silver medals at the Summer Olympics. Ali won a gold medal at the 1960 Rome Olympics, though he ended up throwing the medal in a river as he struggled with the social environment of the world around him.

Here is his quote:

"A man who views the world the same way at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life."
