I recently stumbled upon a great photo of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson that had a quote of his from some time ago.
He’s got a movie coming out this weekend (Fast & Furious 6) that’s been advertised a ton lately, which is what got me to thinking about him and his success. He’s been famous since his days as a wrestler (maybe even before as a championship winning football player at Miami University), but has since gone on to become an international movie star with title roles that are happening more and more frequently. Since he’s faced so much in his life, gone from rags to riches, and been successful at so many things, I’ve often found to be him inspiring and motivational.
So with that, I thought I would post some of his best quotes from over the years. Here are quotes from the man, the myth, the legend… Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
