"I have known many cancer victims — friends and family. Without exception, each has declared, 'I'll beat this thing,'" writes Sidney Harman in a column posthumously published. "They meant it, but for them that consisted of placing everything else on hold to face down the dragon. I have a different view. I have told the dragon to go stand in the damn corner. I have important stuff to do." [Newsweek]
