  • "You have to start by wanting to be a contender, the man coming up, the man who knows there's a good chance he'll never get to the top, the man who's willing to sweat and bleed to get up as high as his legs and his brains and his heart will take him" (Lipsyte, 25)
  • Character vs. Self
  • "In white trunks, from the Bronx, weighing one hundred thirty-six pounds, Joe Rivera. In black trunks, from Harlem, New York, weighing one hundred thirty-four and three-quarter pounds, Alfred Brooks" (Lipsyte, 119)
