Recipe for Life

Today is also the birthday of Muhammad Ali. Born Cassius Marcellus Clay on January 17, 1942 in Louisville, KY he is undeniably one of the greatest boxers of all time.

In an interview, when asked how he would like to be remembered, he replied:
He took a few cups of love.
He took one tablespoon of patience.
One tablespoon, teaspoon of generosity.
One pint of kindness.
He took one quart of laughter.
One pinch of concern.
And then he mixed willingness with happiness.
He added lots of faith.
And he stirred it up well.
Then he spread it over a span of a lifetime.
And he served it to each and every deserving person he met.

It's how I'll remember him.
