"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."

There’s no quit in veteran Marquez - Boxing - Yahoo! Sports

There’s no quit in veteran Marquez - Boxing - Yahoo! Sports:
" There is an old poem written by an unknown author called “Don’t Quit” that could have been penned as Juan Manuel Marquez’s personal anthem.

The classy Mexican champion has made a habit over the course of his lengthy boxing career and, indeed, his life, of overcoming significant obstacles.

He grew up, as so many successful fighters do, in impoverished conditions. He fought his way out of that trap to, if not stardom, a point where he leads a very comfortable life. He’ll make a career-high $5 million to face Manny Pacquiao on Saturday in a high-stakes welterweight title fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena."
