  • There is no point to be alive if you can't do deadlift.
    • As quoted in Dhani Jones, Jonathan Grotenstein, The Sportsman (2011), p. 169
    • Jones & Grotenstein comment that this quote refers to Sigmarsson's "ability to lift enormous weights off the ground. Jón Páll was only 32 when he died of a heart attack brought on by - you guessed it - a deadlift."
