“Let me tell you something you already know. 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 it 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’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!”

  1. A man is not 2 be judged 4 what he did or said in the past but 4 what he is, does & says in the present. I remember a quote from Stallone, when asked how he felt about the tsunami (2004) around New-Year 2005 : ‘Enough about the Tsunami !‘

  2. I watched Rambo and Rocky last night and seeing your post just made me want to sing because I love it when life just lines up like this. I love these quotes because I’m just about as obstinate as Stallone it would seem. Sly is talking to me, because I am at a point when a smart person would give up but a winner would soldier on.
    Love the post!

  3. Sometimes we don’t really have anything to say except that we liked some of the quotes and we appreciate you putting them together – that would be best said with a “like” button. But you don’t have one – or are we missing it?

  4. I love the long one that goes with the graphic at the top. I’ve seen the clip of him saying that. He’s got the perfect voice to deliver that message. Thanks for posting!

  5. I like this one: “I’m always looking for a new challenge. There are a lot of mountains to climb out there. When I run out of mountains, I’ll build a new one.”
    ― Sylvester Stallone
