This has to be one of the most inspiring quotes from one of the most inspiring movie characters of all time.  I hope you like it:

“The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows.  It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently, if you let it.

You, me or nobody, is gonna hit as hard as life.

But ain’t about how hard you hit.  It’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward.  How much you can take, and keep moving forward.

That’s how winning is done.

Now, if you know what you worth, go out and get what you worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits. And not pointing fingers saying: You ain’t what you wanna be because of him or her or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you!

You’re better than that!”

Rocky Balboa
