Quotes by Cus D'Amato

“A boy comes to me with a spark of interest, I feed the spark and it becomes a flame. I feed the flame and it becomes a fire. I feed the fire and it becomes a roaring blaze.”

Cus D'Amato

“A man who’s thinking or worried about getting hit is not gonna have a good sense of anticipation. He will in fact get hit”

Cus D'Amato

“I believe a man is a professional when he can do what needs to be done no matter how he feels within. An amateur is an amateur in his attitude emotionally. A professional is an professional in the way he thinks and feels and in his ability to execute under the most trying conditions.”

Cus D'Amato

“No matter what anyone says, no matter the excuse or explanation, whatever a person does in the end is what he intended to do all along.”

Cus D'Amato

“The hero and the coward both feel the same thing: fear; it’s what they do with that fear that separates them.”

Cus D'Amato

“To see a man beaten not by a better opponent but by himself is a tragedy.”
