    Audio clip:

    Zig Ziglar was 86 and had pneumonia.  He wrote books and gave motivational talks with a focus on Christianity.

    (Ziglar) "But for 24 years of my adult life, by choice, I weighed well over 200 pounds.  I say by choice because, you see, I have never accidentally eaten anything."

    His first book, "See You at the Top," came out in 1975, when he was 49 years old.  He also wrote one about the death of his adult daughter, and about how his life changed after a fall and brain injury in 2007.

    Zig Ziglar died in Plano, Texas - just celebrated his 66th wedding anniversary with his wife, Jean, on Monday.
