Quote for the week of July 18, 2005

posted July 18, 2005 @ 12:15 AM  |  Quote for the Week category

"Swimming will tear you up inside so be ready, be ready to hate it, because at certain points in your career, you will. 'I've always loved swimming' will never come out of the mouth of a true swimmer. You think you have what it takes, reconsider! Do you want to know what makes a real swimmer? It's that stubborn person who knows that most everyday will lead to hell just to prove it can be done - to go through it because someone said it couldn't be done. True swimmers dream to be the best, even when they know in their heart of hearts, that the best is reserved for a select few. True swimmers know that swimming isn't always a sport of love, but the real swimmers, the truly great swimmers, do it anyway. They do it in spite of the pain and agony. They know it's there and they've accepted it. They realize that the pain won't go away and the sport never gets easier, but they keep going. They know that the only way to make it all worth while is to strive to reach their goals and when they've achieved one goal, the stakes just got higher on another. But those swimmers will stop at nothing to achieve; that is what makes for a real swimmer." ~Author Unidentified

I don't believe I have ever said I hated swimming, but I've NEVER said I loved it.

There have been times that I passionately loved it, and other times when I intensely hated it.

You've never said you hated it or loved it? That just shows a lack of passion!
Maybe you should stick to the kiddie pool...
