“Pain heals. Chicks dig scars… Glory, last forever.” – Shane Falco (The Replacements)
Even though this may not be completely relevant (at this point in time) to my daughter. The beginning and end of this quote says a lot. It comes from the football movie ‘The Replacements’ starring Keanu Reeves as a former college quarterback who gets a second chance to come back from failure. SPOILER ALERT- This quote is in the final game of the film after the replacement players find out that the regular players are coming back from strike the next day. There is no future for them as football players and they are already down in the score.
Lesson: The glaring lesson is that even though it hurts and even though you’re down and out, if you can succeed, it will stick with you. There is always room for that last push because once the moments over, it’s over; but it will always have happened.
