"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." - Rocky Balboa
I feel like this quote should be plastered all over every school in America. The world doesn't owe you anything and it will tear you to shreds if you let it, but if you persevere and work hard, you can make something positive out of your life.
