  1. Joseph Addison:

    What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure but scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.

  2. Sylvester Stallone:

    Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and it doesn't care how tough you are. It will beat you to your knees and keep you 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. 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 take what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that! I'm always gonna love you, no matter what. No matter what happens. You're my son and you're my blood. You're the best thing that's ever happened to me. But until you start believing in yourself, you ain’t gonna have a life.
