Daily Inspiration from Ben Affleck — The Oscars Power Salute

If you are in desperate need of an inspirational quote this morning, here’s one from Matt Damon’s friend, Ben Affleck, whom the Hollywood writers say has now achieved “Redemption” for the sin of appearing in a few box office flops.

“It doesn’t matter how you get knocked down in life, ’cause that’s gonna happen. All that matters is you gotta get up.”   — Ben Affleck in his Academy Awards acceptance speech.

Sounds almost identical to daredevil Evel Knievel after breaking another set of assorted bones:

“You can fall many times in life, but you’re never a failure as long as you try to get up.” — Robert Knievel.

What I love about this Affleck photo, though, is the way he holds his Oscar like it’s exercise equipment or that he’s giving the raised fist power salute at the 1968 Olympics.  If I am ever so fortunate to earn another Emmy nomination or Tootsie Pop Clean Stick Award, I will also have my fists clenched and trophy thrust out like I am going into battle.
