I've often said there's nothing better for the inside of a man than the outside of a horse.

In closing I wish to say that while I was sorely beset by a number of white riders in my racing days, I have also enjoyed the friendship of countless thousands of white men whom I class as among my closest friends.

Major Taylor, athlete

I guess everybody saw it. It's a deal where I'd been racing cars a long time and I knew going around the track the fender was on the tire hard.

Haile Gebrselassie, athlete

My introduction to track racing was through the background of cross country running, which is not a sport perhaps as popular in America as it is in England.

Major Taylor, athlete

Racing Stripes was so much fun to do. It's one of the funniest movies I've seen in a couple years.

Bruce Greenwood, actor

Danica Patrick, celebrity

The day you stop racing, is the day you win the race.

Horses have hoofs to carry them over frost and snow; hair, to protect them from wind and cold. They eat grass and drink water, and fling up their heels.... Such is the real nature of horses.

I was quiet, a loner. I was one of those children where, if you put me in a room and gave me some crayons and a pencils, you wouldn't hear from me for nine straight hours.

But I have to say I'm incredibly proud of the Panther Racing National Guard Team, and in my IndyCar career there's not many races where I've honestly left the track feeling that we've executed everything perfectly. And I have to say, I thought they did an absolute phenomenal job. The pit stops were just first class.

I am racing to the studio the moment that God affords me the opportunity to hear again.

Stephanie Rice, athlete

In Athens I was 17 and I didn't have any expectations. I was just swimming fast and racing everybody. I didn't have the joy after my races in 2007. I didn't want to go to Beijing. I had to for sponsors.

Laure Manaudou, athlete

I couldn't beat Michael Phelps. A couple of years ago, I was racing against him and it just kinda dawned on me during the race that there was no chance I was gonna beat this guy. And so I said, if you can't beat him, find a race that he won't swim.

Danica Patrick, celebrity

We don't do things we aren't good at by nature. I wouldn't play basketball because I'm only 5' 1". Find what you enjoy - whether it's racing, flying a helicopter, being a doctor, or stitching clothes together. Once you've done that, you have the passion you need.

Danica Patrick, celebrity

The business model of racing is not a pretty one.

Jeff Gordon, athlete

I've tried everything other than jumping out of a plane, but nothing gives you an adrenaline rush like racing a car.

Fitness will be a major factor in the first race and I think that will play into the hands of drivers who have been racing recently, rather than people like me who haven't raced properly for a decade. I'am not one of the favourites to start with.

After hurting myself like that, I could not go back immediately to racing. I was in no condition, mentally or physically. That helped me to strengthen myself to go through the hard times that were ahead with my business, and to be successful.
