„Se vuoi raggiungere un obiettivo elevato, allora stai per dover cogliere alcune opportunità.“

„I had as many doubts as anyone else. Standing on the starting line, we're all cowards.“

„Whatever we accomplish in life, if it's solely for our own good, then it doesn't mean that much. The things you do that affect others in a positive way are the ones that count. Whatever facet of life you're in, God has given you a gift; do the best you can with that gift.“

„This might sound extreme, perhaps even a little deranged, but I don’t think you can make it to the very top rank in any sport if you don’t have a similar aversion to losing—a visceral, physical loathing. I look for this trait in an athlete, although the hatred of losing has to be balanced by a certain degree of realism, an ability to step back just enough so that you can process your disappointing performance and learn from it.“ 14 Minutes: A Running Legend's Life and Death and Life

„But I’ve since learned that for an athlete, the toughness has to come from within—from some sort of hunger, crisis, or need. You can coach nearly any other quality or skill into a runner, but you can’t coach that.“ 14 Minutes: A Running Legend's Life and Death and Life

„Again, simply declaring your goal won’t help you attain your dream, but unless you declare it—unless you believe in it—you have no chance of attaining it.“ 14 Minutes: A Running Legend's Life and Death and Life
