My Favourite – “It ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”

    Anyone interested whats on stallones shirt it reads Dempsey, as in the legendary boxer Jack Dempsey in the 1920's. Guy was a legend, but he said he was lucky not to fight rocky marciano.

    I love this scene, because I think at some point in our lives we have all felt we have been in both these roles. And it perfectly illustrates how they have had opposite struggles. Where as Rocky came from nothing, he had no shadow to neither curse nor shield him, but through hard work and help he made it. The son has the opposite problem, he was born into a status that were never earned, and then has to struggle to compete with his dad's shadow. This is a very real effect, it's not just an excuse.

    The important message here though is that it's not just a "lecture" from father to son, they are actually both right, and they are both wrong.
    No one is truly self made. You need help/luck to succeed in addition to give it your all. Think about Rocky, yeah he earned his success all the way, but still he would have never gotten anywhere if it were not for two unbelievable favors, first Mickey, almost out of pity. And then Apollo, he was a nobody picked almost at random, Apollo just happened to like the nickname for PR reasons. Then he gave him another match even though he won the first. And then he practically rebuilt his entire life after losing himself in Rocky 3.
    The important thing to note here of course is that you still have to earn it, no one will carry you to success, so no one can take that away from you. Just remember to be humble, because you are never entirely self made, somewhere along the way, someone paved the way for you.

    This scene is not about "right and wrong" it is about a brutally confusing and fucked up thing called life. This is a red threat his other movies as well, especially Rambo. Rambo does not follow the stereotypical action hero narrative, where the hero is 100% good and the enemy is 100% evil, and the morality is not clear at all. He intentionally blurs the line. And in the end you cheer for Rambo more because you sympathize with his struggle, than because he does the right thing.

    Not to make this political, but that is why I loved the controversial "you did not build this" speech by Obama. Because it flies in the face of the overly simplistic and individualistic ideal in America. That all you need to succeed is yourself and your bootstraps, thereby implying that if you have not succeeded, you have only yourself to blame.
    The truth is that you if it were not for others, you would not have roads, you would not have internet, you would not have power etc, so no matter how brilliant a company is, whatever it did, it was only possible within the framework already provided by others.

    I have not seen this movie or know anything about the story. However I stubbled around to this video and was incredibly enthralled by how connected I was to the quote. I have finally found a quote I want to use to teach my underclassman high schoolers about life in general and how to live through it.
