I would like to know the origin of the quotation 'Let them come to you and they'll beat themselves', or something closely approximating to that. It refers to boxing, and I think was said by a famous boxer of the past, although I don't know which one.
Is this is?
I don't beat my opponents, they beat themselves
- Mayweather, Jr.
Some quotes applies in most of the situation, like
“It always seems impossible until it is done.” ~ Nelson Mandela
"Well done is better than well said.” ~ Benjamin Franklin
“One finds limits by pushing them.” ~ Herbert Simon
"Think Hard - Fight Tough" RDX Sports
I don't know the origin but this quote is really nice:
I think my grandmother saw my potential first. When I was young, I told her, 'I think I should get a job.' She said, 'No, just keep boxing.'
Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
