Champion of Courage

" True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost."

“If I were to say, ''God, why me?'' about the bad things, then I should have said, ''God, why me?'' about the good things that happened in my life.”

"You are never really playing an opponent. You are playing yourself, your own highest standards, and when you reach your limits, that is real joy."

Arthur Ashe
