The #1 sports movie quote is from Rocky II's "Yo Adrian, I Did It." Apollo Creed is explaining to his son, Adrien, why he lost their fight. After telling him that it was because he didn't give up, Apollo adds: "Sometimes you have to know when to quit. That's what this business is all about. Sometimes you win; sometimes you lose. But if you're gonna win, you better not stop trying."
Apollo was talking about how hard he had trained for their fight but didn't come out of the ring until after Adrien had already won several fights by knockout. When asked by a reporter why he hadn't taken a break like everyone else, Apollo replied:"There's no time for rest in boxing. You can't sleep at the corner of the ring waiting for your opponent to tire themselves out. If you do, you'll never be able to fight my boys again."
This scene comes right after Apollo has been knocked out by Clubber Lang in the first round of their fight. Adrien thinks his father has died and tells him so. Filled with remorse, Apollo then decides to retire from boxing.

"When the sun shines, I can achieve anything; no mountain is too high, no difficulty too great to overcome." "There can be no triumph without effort." " I'm not sure why I run so quickly. "I simply ran. " - Mary Keitner

After graduating from college with a degree in physical education, Keitner decided to forgo a career as a teacher to embark on a running career. In just over a year's time, she went from being an average runner to becoming one of the top athletes in America by winning several major races including the Boston Marathon.
In an interview with The New York Times, Keitner said: "When the sun shines, I can achieve anything; no mountain is too high, no difficulty too great to overcome. "I simply ran.
Keitner's comment is well-known among athletes who have heard it before they competed in competitions that included races over long distances.

I stepped into the bathroom and right there in the center of the toilet... someone shat on the toilet, not in the toilet. They puked on the wall and the floor. It was an awful mess. I called my boss at the time and told him that I had a job opportunity that would take me to San Francisco and that I should probably go because there was no one else who could clean up after themselves. He said that wasn't necessary but I insisted so he gave me permission to leave. I took the job and got the hell out of Dodge.
