Coach Lamonte: Favorite Muhammad Ali quotes

The late Muhammad Ali was a man of many words. He's known not only for his boxing moves, but his awe-inspiring messages. 

Life strategist, Coach Lamonte, stopped by WBTV News Saturday Morning to share his thoughts on the quotes below.
 
I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.' 

He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.
 
I've made my share of mistakes along the way, but if I have changed even one life for the better, I haven't lived in vain. 
 
Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even. 
 
I know where I'm going and I know the truth, and I don't have to be what you want me to be. I'm free to be what I want. 
 
If they can make penicillin out of mouldy bread, they can sure make something out of you. 
 
It isn't the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it's the pebble in your shoe. 
 
The man who has no imagination has no wings.
 
Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.
 
It's the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.
