Quotes by Bobby Stewart:

About training the twelve year old Mike at Tryon reform school:
“Everything I showed him-he would go back to his room and practice it over and over. At three in the morning one could hear movement and the snorting from Mike’s room, learning, perfecting what I’d taught him the day before. The third-shift staff had to put him to bed every night.” [Fire, 41]

On sparring with the twelve year old Mike at Tryon reform school:
“I could not believe it. The boy was extremely strong, very smart, and had a punch like a mule’s kick.” [Fire, 43]
