Famous quotes containing the words summer and/or boxing:

    The summer that I was ten—
    Can it be there was only one
    summer that I was ten? It must

    have been a long one then—
    May Swenson (1919–1995)

    I can entertain the proposition that life is a metaphor for boxing—for one of those bouts that go on and on, round following round, jabs, missed punches, clinches, nothing determined, again the bell and again and you and your opponent so evenly matched it’s impossible not to see that your opponent is you.... Life is like boxing in many unsettling respects. But boxing is only like boxing.
    Joyce Carol Oates (b. 1938)
