Boxing legend Muhammad Ali interviewed by Michael Parkinson.
“I have a wife, and if she’s walking around with a skirt up to here and then what’s happening? Why would I want anybody to see her? People look and they’re weak and they’re lusting for her, all kind of freaks and no good people on the streets. Horses show their behinds, cows and animals and mules.
Human beings don’t walk around with their behinds out. Savages walk around with their behinds out. And my wife’s behind ain’t for every man to look at. You understand what I’m saying? Makes a lot of sense. ANYTHING GOD MADE PRECIOUS, NATURE HIDES IT. YOU CANNOT FIND DIAMONDS EASY, YOU HAVE TO DIG AND DIG AND DIG. YOU CANNOT FIND GOLD. EVERYTHING GOD MADE VALUABLE, HE MADE HARD TO GET. PEARLS, RUBIES, OIL, YOU HAVE TO DIG AND HALF THE TIME, YOU DON’T STRIKE. EVERYTHING GOD CREATED THAT WAS VALUABLE, HE MADE HARD TO GET TO. AIN’T A WOMAN MORE IMPORTANT THAN SOME DIAMONDS OR OIL OR SOME GOLD ?”
