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
I want to finish by saying that I intend to be an avid spokesperson for testicular cancer once I have beaten the disease... 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
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
Every year the media comes up with something to describe my race … The first year it was "the comeback." Then it was the "the confirmation." I don't know what it was last year. This year, for me, it's "the year of the team." I can't say how I compare to the rider I was in 1999 or 2000 or 2001, but this team is much stronger than it has ever been. It has made it easier for me.Lance Armstrong
If there was a god, I'd still have both nuts.Lance Armstrong

If a script writer had come up with a story resembling what you have just achieved, even the Hollywood studios would have refused.Lance Armstrong
I want to die at a hundred years old with an American flag on my back and the star of Texas on my helmet, after screaming down an Alpine descent on a bicycle at 75 miles per hour. I want to cross one last finish line as my stud wife and my ten children applaud, and then I want to lie down in a field of those famous French sunflowers and gracefully expire, the perfect contradiction to my once anticipated poignant early demise.Lance Armstrong
We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up or fight like hell.Lance Armstrong
