"This is the legend of 🥊Cassius Clay/ the most beautiful fighter in the world today/ He talks a great deal and brags indeedy/ of a muscular punch that's incredibly speedy/ This kid's got a left/ this kid's got a right/ if he hits you once, you're asleep for the night/ His fight's great/ he's got speed and endurance/ but if you sign to fight him, increase your insurance" - Muhammad Ali

"I respect and reverence you, dear father-in-law, I wish I had chosen death rather than following your son, leaving behind my bridal chamber, my beloved daughter, my dear childhood friends and my kin. But I did not, and I pine away in sorrow." - Homer, Iliad

"You're a silhouette of splendor / I've loved to remember / Oh, it helps me through / these hours I spent away from you / People wonder how I do it / Oh, there's nothing to it / These gentle thoughts of you / makes it all worth going through You gave me a special kind of feeling / makes it so easy / and oh so pleasing / to concentrate on you" - Harold Johnson
