sc 71 Small Victories.

May 5, 2010

A pot roast, a lawnmower and a wheelchair figure prominantly in the tale of three small victories — as accomplished by Toppie, his mother and father, and described on today’s Smellcast.

The three quotes heard near the opening are: (in order of appearance)

“Victory is sweetest when you’ve known defeat.”
Malcolm Forbes — Millionaire publisher of Forbes magazine, motorcycle entusiast, outed as a closeted homosexual by OutWeek Magazine soon after his death in 1990.

“I look at victory as milestones on a very long highway.”
Joan Benoit Samuelson — retired American marathon runner, who won gold at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles.

“The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses – behind the lines, in the gym and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.”
Muhammad Ali — retired American Boxer, a historic and iconic American hero.
