Rocky:

“I´ll tell you someting 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 movin´ forward. How much you can take and keep movin´ forward. That´s how winnin´ is done!

If you know what you are worth, get what you´re worth, but you got to be willin´ to take the hits and not pointin´ fingers, sayin´ 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!

I´m always gonna love you no matter what, no matter what happens. You are my son and you´re my blood. You´re the best thing in my life. But until you start believin´ in yourself, you ain´t gonna have a life.”
