    He didn't actually write that. They show a picture of him in the background of a nike ad with that little line. But he isnt the one that said it. They just put his name there in case you cant recognize his body.

    ""Do you ever miss it much?" Denton paused as he was sliding out of the booth and looked at Cassidy.

    "Quenton, you'll come to understand this eventually.  I had my time, I really did.  It was wonderful, no doubt about it.  Stood up there blubbering like a schoolboy with my hand on my chest...."

    "Bruce..."

    "...and that was then.  Now I have a wonderful life.  Family, career, good health..."

    "Bruce...."

    Denton Laughed.

    "More than I can tell you," he said, picking up the check and handing it to Cassidy."

    Re: got any quotes??

    My old Hapkido instructor had a good little motto:

    "Pain is just weakness leaving the body"


    ...and I have quite a collection of quotes on just about everythign and anything, I will have to have a look and see if there are any that relate more to running.

    But one of my favourite quotes is:

    "The creation of a thousand forests is in the one acorn"
    - Ralph Waldo Emerson

    (I spose it doesn't really scream "run" at you but it's insipiring all the same)
