LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The world reflects this week on a native son who impacted it so forcefully.

Muhammad Ali will be remembered for so many things, especially as someone who spoke his mind.

Among the many memorable quotes attributed to "The Greatest":

  • "Don't count the days, make the days count."
  • "If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it, then I can achieve it."
  • "Hating people because of their color is wrong. And it doesn't matter which color does the hating. It's just plain wrong."
  • "He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life."
  • "You lose nothing when fighting for a cause …In my mind the losers are those who don't have a cause they care about."
  • "The service you do for others is the rent you pay for your room here on Earth."

May Cassius Clay the boy and Muhammad Ali the man rest in peace.
