The Italian Stallion



I bought the Rocky collection a few days ago and I was watching it again. There are many great quotes I could take from it, but this is one of the best. It's from the last movie, Rocky Balboa (2006).


"Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and 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 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 hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that 
and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!"


Well, this is a damn of a life lesson, isn't it? Life is harsh and cruel sometimes, and if we let it go over us, we will never be more than shit. Plus, we can't blame anyone for our mistakes and our hard times. We just have to face it and keep moving forward, like he says. I know it's a lot easier to give up and let people tell us we aren't good, but we all know how pathetic is that. So let's not be cowards, we are better than that!.

Rocky is just a classic movie with a big life lesson . Life is hard and cruel but if you have your own dream you must follow it otherwise you're coward.

I have been kind of wanting to watch Rocky again lately, and after this, I just might lol. A damn good speech, with damn good points. Life may hit you, but you have to hit back.
