“It's the climbing that makes the man. Getting to the top is an extra reward. ”
Robert Lipsyte, The Contender

“You are not a mere spectator at a contest between cancer cells and killer drugs. Your attitude is important. Your will to get healthy. People give up; sometimes it seems easier to die than hang in there, go the distance... You've got to be your own hero. People need to find things inside themselves they never knew were there.”
Robert Lipsyte, The Chemo Kid

“Police, you under arrest!”
Robert Lipsyte
