“Out of the strong came forth sweetness,” says the 14th verse of the 14th chapter of Judges.
“Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee,” cried Cassius Clay who became Muhammad Ali, as he pounded his way to the top of a brutal profession. Judges tells us that Samson brought honey out of the body of a lion he had slain, and in King of the World David Remnick tells us how a terrifyingly graceful engine of destruction changed direction to carry a message of peace around the world.
–Book reviewer Heywood Hale Broun, “The Right Stuff,” Washington Post, Sunday, October 18, 1998. p. X01.
Ali was a product of the turbulent ’60s ... He changed the way a lot of people looked at the world.
–Actor James Earl Jones.
Muhammad Ali, né Cassius Marcellus Clay, was born in Louisville, Kentucky, precisely under the setting position of Secondary Venus and at the edge of a Transcendental Midpoint-Field formed between Secondary Venus and the rising position of Primary Pluto. In Rome, under the European location of a Primary Pluto / Secondary Venus Transcendental Midpoint-Field, Ali won the light-heavyweight title in “boxing” (Tertiary Mars) in the 1960 Olympics: an accomplishment which helped to propel him to international fame. He later won the world heavyweight title when he beat Sonny Liston at Miami Beach in 1964, under the setting position of Secondary Venus.
Ali’s “charm, charisma, and good looks” (Secondary Venus) combined with his “willful and provocative style” (Primary Pluto) to help widen the public appeal of boxing (a sport which, until Ali, was in danger of disappearing from mainstream athletics). As a result, it underwent a kind of “rebirth” (Pluto) on the mainstream stage. Ali’s key Transcendentals aptly describe his “violent profession” (Tertiary Mars) and “destructive / charm” (Pluto / Venus).
