A Quote by Rocky Balboa on rocky balboa, fighting life, getting back up, moving forward, cowards, and taking hits

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all
sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean, and nasty place an' no matter how
tough you think you are, it'll always beat you if you let it. 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! 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 pointin' fingers saying you ain’t
where you wanna be because of him, her, or anybody! Cowards do that, and that
ain’t you! You’re better than that!

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on genius, cowards, god, time, and hope

There is a time in every man's education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better for worse as his portion; that though the wide universe is full of good, no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground which is given to him to till. The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried.

Not for nothing one face, one character, one fact makes much impression on him, and another none. This sculpture in the memory is not without preéstablishcd harmony. The eye was placed where one ray should fall, that it might testify of that particular ray. We but half express ourselves, and are ashamed of that divine idea which each of us represents. It may be safely trusted as proportionate and of good issues, so it be faithfully imparted, but God will not have his work made manifest by cowards. A man is relieved and gay when he has put his heart into his work and done his best; but what he has said or done otherwise shall give hint no peace. It is a deliverance which does not deliver. In the attempt his genius deserts him; no muse befriends; no invention, no hope.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
