Muhammad Ali – one of the world’s Greatest Champions, and one of the world’s greatest humanitarians.

Muhammad Ali - Heavyweight Champion of the World by Alan Trussell-CullenWhen I began to write my children’s biography about Muhammad Ali for the Hameray Biography Series, I had no idea how life-changing and inspirational that was going to be for me. I am so grateful for the privilege of being able to share his life story with so many children. The outpouring of love and affection that has come with his death is no surprise. He achieved so many amazing things, but he also said so many wonderfully witty and pointed and moving things. He didn’t just challenge others in his sport – he challenged us all. Three of my favorite quotes:

“I wish people would love everybody else the way they love me. It would be a better world.”-Muhammad Ali

“Wouldn’t it be a beautiful world if just 10 percent of the people who believe in the power of love would compete with one another to see who could do the most good for the most people?” – Muhammad Ali

“The man with no imagination has no wings.” – Muhammad Ali.

Thank you Muhammad Ali.
