Lance Armstrong Quotes

A boo is a lot louder than a cheer. If you have 10 people cheering and one person booing, all you hear is the booing.
Lance Armstrong (Quoted in Sports Illustrated, 2002)
To be afraid is a priceless education.
Lance Armstrong (It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life, 2000)
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.
Lance Armstrong (Back in the Saddle: An Essay by Lance Armstrong)
Pain and loss are great enhancers.
Lance Armstrong (Quoted in Forbes Magazine, 2001)
The riskiest thing you can do is get greedy. 
Lance Armstrong
I wanted to live, but whether I would or not was mystery, and in the midst of confronting that fact, even at that moment, I was beginning to sense that to stare into the heart of such a fearful mystery wasn't a bad thing. To be afraid is a priceless education.
Lance Armstrong (It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life, 2000)
I wished hard, but I didn't pray. I had developed a certain distrust of organized religion growing up, but I felt I had the capacity to be a spiritual person, and to hold some fervent beliefs.
Lance Armstrong (It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life, 2000)
What ever your 100% looks like, give it.
Lance Armstrong (It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life, 2000)
If children have the ability to ignore all odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them. When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope? We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up, or Fight Like Hell.
Lance Armstrong
My mother told me...if you're going to get anywhere, you're going to have to do it yourself, because no one is going to do it for you.
Lance Armstrong (It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life, 2000)
Anyone who imagines they can work alone winds up surrounded by nothing but rivals, without companions. The fact is, no one ascends alone.
Lance Armstrong (It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life, 2000)
Life, to me, is a series of false limits and my challenge as an athlete is to explore those limits on a bike.
Lance Armstrong (Every Second Counts, 2003)
I want all of you to know that I intend to beat this disease. And further, I intend to ride again as a professional cyclist.
Lance Armstrong (Announcement about his cancer in a press conference, 1996)
Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever.
Lance Armstrong (Every Second Counts, 2003)
One of the redeeming things about being an athlete is redefining what is humanly possible.
Lance Armstrong (Quoted in Fast Company, 2007)
I believed in belief, for its own shining sake. To believe in the face of utter hopelessness, every article of evidence to the contrary, to ignore apparent catastrophe - what other choice was there? We are so much stronger than we imagine, and belief is one of the most valiant and long-lived human characteristics. To believe, when all along we humans know that nothing can cure the briefness of this life, that there is no remedy for our basic mortality, that is a form of bravery. To continue believing in yourself...believing in whatever I chose to believe in, that was the most important thing.
Lance Armstrong (It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life, 2000)
Knowledge is power, community is strength and positive attitude is everything.
Lance Armstrong
Through my illness I learned rejection. I was written off. That was the moment I thought, Okay, game on. No prisoners. Everybody's going down. 
Lance Armstrong
If you worried about falling off the bike, you'd never get on. 
Lance Armstrong
During our lives...we experience so many setbacks, and fight such a hand-to-hand battle with failure, head down in the rain, just trying to stay upright and to have a little hope.
Lance Armstrong (It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life, 2000)
I want this to be a positive experience and I want to take this opportunity to help others who might someday suffer from the same circumstance I face today.
Lance Armstrong (Announcement about his cancer in a press conference, 1996)
Winning is about heart, not just legs. It's got to be in the right place. 
Lance Armstrong
My job is to suffer. I make the suffering in training hard so that the races are not full of suffering.
Lance Armstrong (Quoted in Time magazine, 2003)
What is stronger, fear or hope?
Lance Armstrong (It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life, 2000)
Hope that is the only antidote to fear.
Lance Armstrong (It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life, 2000)
I figure the faster I pedal, the faster I can retire. 
Lance Armstrong
A life spent defensively, worried, is a life wasted.
Lance Armstrong (Every Second Counts, 2003)
