It Aint Over Till Its Over

Sometimes a single movie quote is more powerful than the combined strength of all religious texts

Rocky Balboa: The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place It will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me or nobody is going to hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit, it is about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much can you 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!

  1. Viv,
    A really good one…quite deep ifyou really think abt it. You’re really good @ picking those inspiring dialogues from movies. Keep the good work going.

  2. Prav,

    Glad you liked it. Infact if you get the chance do see the movie sometime. Its a good one, though nothing very special. But still worth watching.


  3. That was Brilliant πŸ™‚

    I’d concur with Praveen that you really are the best at handpicking inspiring quotes πŸ™‚

    Vivs, how about an exclusive quotes blog as well? I would love to see that πŸ™‚

  4. Hey Debs,

    Saw the movie the other day and kinda struck me how true what he said was. Thanks for the complement πŸ™‚ . There are some other people i know who are just wonderful at picking the right quotes for the right time. Guess these things leave more of an impact than a normal conversation and deliver quite a few ideas in one go.

    An exclusive quotes blog πŸ™‚ Might be a little limited in scope considering how often i blog, but yes this blog will for sure will have all that is striking and thought provoking.

  5. The dialogue was amazing it is really inspiring, when am doing my training. It does really help me as it is very motivating and inspirational; it increases my momentum to move on and on. The film was totally amazing and I haven’t seen a better film this year I would rate it 5/5. It is really in its own class and it defiantly in its own league. A BIG THUMBS UP!!!!!!! Worth Watching In Cinemas.

  6. Wow wot a quote, neva really realized how inspiring and true it really was until i read it. i heard it in the movie though i guess it realy neva sunk in then. its real deep!

    Viv, thanks this one realy got me stumped. i feel lyk goin out ther an makin a difference for the better u no wot i mean.

  7. @Solid Snake and @Smooth Operator : Yes, the movie though subtle is very effective. Balaboa is very similar to what the first Rocky is like — story of an underdog, who can tell himself that things are lost and being mediocre is fine. Its only when he gives hope a chance and takes the responsibility of fighting to the distance does he realize his true potential. Never Ever Give Up.
