Played by actor Sylvester Stallone, Rocky Balboa is a fictional character who went on to gain worldwide fame and captivate millions of people thanks to his multiple appearances in several films in which he played the role of a boxer.
An example of temperance
In fact, he is one of the most famous boxers in world cinema, he is the champion Rocky Balboa who, however, has phrases that also serve as motivation and reflection, even if they come from a fictional character. Among some of his most outstanding famous phrases, we find:
“I was nobody, but that doesn’t matter either. Because I was thinking, it doesn’t matter if I lose this fight, it doesn’t matter if the guy opens my head, because I just have to keep my distance. No one has kept the distance with Creed, and if I keep my distance and the bell rings and I am still standing, at that moment I will know, for the first time in my life, that I was not just another bum of the neighborhood.”
“Boxing is an unnatural act because everything goes backwards. If you want to move to the left, you do not take a step to the left, loads on the right foot. To move to the right you use the left foot. Instead of running away from pain as a sane person would, you take a step toward him. In boxing everything goes backwards.”
If you are willing to go through the necessary fight to get where you want to go… no one has the right to stop you
The only respect that matters is one’s.
Nobody owes anybody anything. You only owe it to yourself.
Fear is like fire. If you control it, it will warm you up and keep you alive, but if it controls you, it will burn you and destroy you.
Nothing ends, until you feel it’s over.
