World champion boxer Muhammad Ali may have been a professional fighter in the ring. But outside the ring, he was known to be a warm, spiritual, big-hearted and generous man with lots of love to give, which he poured out on family, friends, fans, and children.
In his book The Soul of a Butterfly: Reflections on Life's Journey authored with his daughter Hana Yasmeen Ali, he shares his thoughts on how to live a truly rich and meaningful life.
Recipe for a Good Life by Muhammad Ali
Here is my suggestion . . .
Take a few cups of kindness
One dash of humility
One sprinkle of laughter
One teaspoon of patience
One tablespoon of generosity
One pint of forgiveness
One quart of love
And a gallon of faith
Mix in determination and add lots of courage;
Stir it up very well, spread it over the span of your lifetime,
And serve it to each and every person you meet.
Imagine what our world would be like if we all followed Muhammad's recipe for a good life!
