Post Your Own Strong Words

Bonus points if they’re from a bodybuilder/ strength athlete. Except anything from “Pumping Iron” doesn’t count because we could all quote that.

Here’s mine:

"I knew I was a winner back in the late sixties. I knew I was destined for great things. People will say that kind of thinking is totally immodest. I agree. Modesty is not a word that applies to me in any way - I hope it never will. "

I’m sick of hearing about the have’s and the have not’s
Have some personal accountability

Don’t try to tell me how some power can corrupt a person!
You haven’t had enough to know what its like
You’re only angry cause you wish you were in my position
Now nod your head because you know that I’m right…alright!

“Either way, it comes down to this; I would not take advice or even listen to some guy who doesn’t look like he works out. I would not listen to what some guy with 14” arms had to say about biceps training. I would not listen to what some guy who weighed 300lbs of obesity had to say about dieting. I would not listen to what some guy who could only bench press the bar had to say about building a big chest or handling a lot of weight in that exercise.

Sure, you could argue that somewhere there may be some guy who exists who doesn’t look the part but happens to be Hercules, but let’s not pretend like it is such a frequent occurrence that I need to be on the look out for tiny little super-experienced Smurfs. "

“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

-Theodore Roosevelt
