I am not a role model.

Mike Tyson

I look forward to coming back again. I've lost more than I've won in life, so, believe me, I'm pretty much understanding of the situation and I can deal with it. I can deal with adversity.

Mike Tyson

I just want to conquer people and their souls.

Mike Tyson

Real freedom is having nothing. I was freer when I didn't have a cent.

I'm a Muslim, but do you think Jesus would love me? I think Jesus would have a drink with me and discuss why are you acting like that? Now, he would be cool. He would talk to me. No Christian ever did that and said in the name of Jesus even. They'd throw me in jail and write bad articles about me and then go to church on Sunday and say Jesus is a wonderful man and he's coming back to save us. But they don't understand that when he comes back, that these crazy greedy capitalistic men are gonna kill him again.

When I'd get up in the morning, he'd make me breakfast. Now he's not around anymore. God. I'm doing to do well, but when I come down to it, who really cares? I like doing my job, but I'm not happy being victorious. I fight my heart out and give it my best, but when it's over, there's no Cus to tell me how I did, no mother to show my clippings to.

Everybody's got plans...until they get hit.

Mike Tyson

I'll go back and take what the people owe me.

Mike Tyson

I know why they don't like me because they want the money I have.

Mike Tyson

I feel like sometimes that I was not meant for this society.

Mike Tyson

I'm scared every time I go into the ring, but it's how you handle it. What you have to do is plant your feet, bite down on your mouthpiece and say, 'Let's go.'

Mike Tyson

I'm on the Zoloft to keep me from killing y'all.

Fear is your best friend or your worst enemy. It's like fire. If you can control it, it can cook for you; it can heat your house. If you can't control it, it will burn everything around you and destroy you. If you can control your fear, it makes you more alert, like a deer coming across the lawn.

Mike Tyson

My biggest weakness is my sensitivity. I am too sensitive a person.

Mike Tyson

I don't react to a tragic happening any more. I took so many bad things as a kid and some people think I don't care about anything. It's just too hard for me to get emotional. I cant cry no more.

Mike Tyson

When you're a great finisher, you'll become popular. Joe Louis was a great finisher. So was Ray Robinson. Ray Leonard. They got a man in trouble and they threw everything they had at him. Bring him down.

Mike Tyson

Without discipline, no matter how good you are, you are nothing! One day, and I might not be around, you're going to meet a tough guy who takes your best shot. He'll keep coming because he's tough. Don't get discouraged. That's when the discipline comes in.

Mike Tyson

I never saw my mother happy with me and proud of me for doing something: She only knew me as being a wild kid running the streets, coming home with new clothes that she knew I didn't pay for. I never got a chance to talk to her or know about her. Professionally, it has no effect, but it's crushing emotionally and personally.

Mike Tyson

Mr. Arthur Ashe, he was good. I read some of his books. He knew about everything, but he was real quiet and didn't talk much. I never met him.

Mike Tyson

I did my time for the rape. I paid my money to Las Vegas. I paid my dues.

Mike Tyson

You can't stay married in a situation where you are afraid to go to sleep in case your wife might cut your throat.

Mike Tyson

I'm just like you. I enjoy the forbidden fruits in life, too.

Mike Tyson

I want to rip out his heart and feed it to Lennox Lewis. I want to kill people. I want to rip their stomachs out and eat their children.

Mike Tyson

I was hoping he would get up so I could hit him again and keep him down.

Mike Tyson

I could feel his muscle tissues collapse under my force. It's ludicrous these mortals even attempt to enter my realm.
