As you probably heard, Muhammad Ali passed away on Friday night at the age of 74. An other-worldly fist technician and master of hyperbole, it’s impossible to summarize The Louisville Lip, but luckily Ali took a shot in his 2013 autobiography, The Soul of a Butterfly: Reflections on Life’s Journey:
“I would like to be remembered as a man who won the heavyweight title three times, who was humorous, and who treated everyone right. As a man who never looked down on those who looked up to him, and who helped as many people as he could. As a man who stood up for his beliefs no matter what. As a man who tried to unite all humankind through faith and love. And if all that’s too much, then I guess I’d settle for being remembered only as a great boxer who became a leader and a champion of his people. And I wouldn’t even mind if folks forgot how pretty I was.”
