Some famous quotes by John Cena
“Rise above hate. Never give up. That’s what makes you a true champion. Either you stay down or you get up, but just make sure when you get up, you rise with purpose and meaning.”
“A man’s character is not judged after he celebrates a victory, but by what he does when his back is against the wall.”
“To succeed, I have to believe every night, in my heart, that I am the best.”
“I have certain things that I stand for, certain things that I believe in, and if you don’t like it and you tell me to go to hell, I think that’s your God-given right as a fan. It’s one of those deals where I’m that one guy who is outside of that realm of good guy, bad guy. I’m just me, and it elicits a response both positive and negative.”
“Trust me, … I know where my heart is and my heart’s right here. I’m going to keep doing everything because I love to do it, but I will never sacrifice my time between the ropes. That’s no shot to anybody. Everybody’s got different career paths. This is mine.”
“I literally wake up and try to tackle every day the best I can and do my best to try to make life as productive and positive as I can.”
“Nobody remembers second place.”
“Whether fighting or spitting, my discipline is unforgiving!”
“Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.”
“The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us, but those who win battles we know nothing about.”
“The only way to do something is to do it to the best of your ability.”
