Olympics Quotes


Since the times of the ancient Greeks, men and women have gathered to test their athleticism against the best of the best from around the globe. Even in a modern age, the Olympics and Olympic quotes ignite the spirits of millions of people around the world who root for their favorite athletes, who cheer on their country’s men and women as they compete in the world arena, and discover those rare stories of athletes who experienced the thrill of victory and yes, the agony of defeat. And through their words in the form of Olympic quotes, we learn what it takes for us to be champions in our own right, perhaps not on the world stage, but one that is just as important, if not more personal.
