[visiting his old house] ... I remember when she was standing there all nervous and shy with that small smile... And all I wanted her to do was trust me... And she did... She did...

Rocky Balboa: Hey yo, champ. Aren't you a little scared?
Mason 'The Line' Dixon: I don't get scared.
Rocky Balboa: You know I think you try harder when your scared... That's when it's worked best for me.

Yo, how you doin'?

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!

Marie: Do you have a reservation?
Paulie: Do I look like a freakin' Indian?

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is 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, 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!

I feel like a kangaroo... all this stuff in my pocket.

You got everything money can buy, except what it can't. It's pride. Pride is what got your ass out here, and losing is what brought ya back. But people like you, they need to be tested. They need a challenge.
