eye of the tiger

The quote I have printed up in a delightfully large font and scotch-taped to the front of our microwave for my children and all the world to see as they warm up their corndogs and Trader Joe's frozen burritos -- because I'm just that kind of dame:

“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 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.”

-- Rocky Balboa
