35 Inspirational Sylvester Stallone Quotes On Success

Sylvester Stallone is an American actor, director, screenwriter, and producer. He is well known for his Hollywood action roles, including boxer Rocky Balboa in the Rocky series, soldier John Rambo in the five Rambo films, mercenary Barney Ross in the three The Expendables films and structure engineer Ray Breslin in the three Escape Plan films. He wrote or co-wrote most of the 16 films in the first three popular franchises and directed many of them. Stallone’s film Rocky was inducted into the National Film Registry and had its props placed in the Smithsonian Museum. His use of the front entrance to the Philadelphia Museum of Art in the Rocky series led the area to be nicknamed the Rocky Steps, and Philadelphia has a statue of his Rocky character placed permanently near the museum. He received positive reviews, as well as his first Golden Globe Award win and a third Academy Award nomination, for reprising the role of Rocky Balboa in Ryan Coogler’s 2015 film Creed. May his quotes inspire you to take action so that you may live your dreams.
