Johnny Weir

Whether witty or wise, controversial or charming, shocking or silly, sweet or sassy, provocative or profound, inspiring or infuriating--or any combination of those--Johnny Weir, the three-time U.S. Champion, two-time Olympian, and World medalist figure skater, almost always says something worth quoting whenever he commentates a skating competition, makes a TV appearance, gives an interview, holds a press conference, writes, tweets, or is caught on video. His quotes needed to be collected and shared; hence this blog.

Nobody simply arrives. They suffer & achieve in silence while no one is looking and then, they create magic.

We want to rule the world. We want to be Beyonce and Jay Z. Wait for our album. We want Emmys, we want Grammys, we want Oscars for our acting ability. Best documentary short. We're going to walk on the moon.

At the banquets, it’s rare for the skaters to get very drunk. Usually the banquets are time spent between the whole skating family, coaches, judges and federation officials, so drunken dance-offs would be pretty inappropriate. The drunken dance offs happen in the hotel rooms once all the old people go to bed.
