#Quote
1 [referring to the day blood tests finally showed he had in used performance enhancing drugs and lost all his sponsorship deals with companies, including Nike] that was a $75 million day
2 [January, 2013] I view this situation as one big lie that I repeated a lot of times.
3 [2005: when asked, under oath, if his sponsorships would be lost if doping allegations were true] All of them, and the faith of all the cancer survivors around the world. So everything I do off of the bike would go away too. And don't think for a second I don't understand that. It's not about money for me. Everything. It's also about the faith that people have put in me over the years. So all of that would be erased. So I don't need it to say in a contract you're fired if you test positive. That's not as important as losing the support of hundreds of millions of people.
4 [2012] Nobody needs to cry for me. I'm going to be great.
