"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 winning." - Sylvester Stallone, Rocky Balboa
Granted, the character is a boxer who gets paid to take hits for a living, but don't we all? No matter who you are or what you do for a living, odds are good that someone's got you over a barrel. There's someone whose jokes you have to laugh at, whose ring you have to kiss, and whose scut work you have to do with a smile. That's life.
Edit: ok, posting this was a HUGE mistake - I can't even begin to tell you. Within less than a week, I was in a car accident serious enough that my car was totaled. I take it back, okay? I take it all back. I'm not interested in how hard I can get hit. I give. Uncle. Uncle!!
