When we race in London a world record will be the last thing on our minds.

What can you do if a part of it is uphill? You can't work out another route.

Even the cobbles, I hope, are not very much of a problem for me.

how they run.
For me to beat the best is what counts.

- Haile Gebrselassie

Now I think my other hand has developed more muscles
from signing all those autographs.
- Haile Gebrselassie

He was not a runner, my father, but he was quick.
I always remember it was very difficult to escape from him when he was angry.
If he wanted to beat us he would always catch us.
Even me, he could always catch me.
- Haile Gebrselassie

My father thought sport was something fun -
he didn't know it was a way to make money.
Then I won a Mercedes at the world championships and I gave it to him.
From the moment it arrived my father said:
'Good,
you can support not just yourself but me too'.
- Haile Gebrselassie

Eradicate poverty.
This is all that matters in my country.

As a country we cannot move forward until we eradicate poverty.

I accept gratefully the entirety of my past and my present life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie PHOTO

Our "Rainbows and Butterflies" are the small miracles of our life -
the little things that are so easy to overlook,
yet so awe inspiring when we take a moment
to notice and to pay attention.
Give thanks for the rainbows, for the butterflies,
for all God's creatures - large and small,
for the bright blue sky and the soft fog and the gentle rain,
for the tree veiled in the season's first frost,
for the baby's laugh,
for the touch of a hand and the whispered "I love you."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie PHOTO

The moment you become miserly you are closed
to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing.
The moment you start clinging to things,
you have missed the target.

not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.
- Osho

The Eye-of-the-Storm.
Surrounded by the winds and the rain,
yet peaceful in its own unworldly way -

a moment of serenity among the challenge -
a time for repose and contemplation.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

This moment! - this here-now - is forgotten
when you start thinking in terms of achieving something.
When the achieving mind arises,
you lose contact with the paradise you are in.
