"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 the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill." 

Muhammad Ali

"I fell in love with football as I would later fall in love with women: suddenly, uncritically, giving no thought to the pain it would bring." - Nick Hornby

"The virtue of angels is that they cannot deteriorate; their flaw is that they cannot improve. Humanity's flaw is that we can deteriorate; but our virtue is that we can improve. " - Hasidic saying

The link is that both quotations are going to appear in my new novel which is beginning to take shape - but lots more work to do on it....

This amused me...

Grant me the serenity
to accept the things I
cannot change.
The courage to change the
things I cannot accept,
and the wisdom to hide
the bodies of those people
I had to kill today
they pissed me off
and also,
help me to be careful of
the toes I step on today,
as they may be connected
to the asses that I may
have to kiss
