Neil loved quotes and one in particular that he lived by was from the film Rocky:
"But it ain't about how hard you get hit.
Its about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward;
how much you can take and keep moving forward.
That's how winning is done!
Now, if you know what you're worth,
then go out and get what you're worth.
But you gotta be willing to take the hits,
and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be
because of him, or her, or anybody.
Cowards do that, and that ain't you.
You're better than that!"
