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.

I live my life the way that I was born to live it and I take no prisoners, but I also ask for no unneeded respect or babying. I’m a tough guy. And gay or not gay, I would still be tough and I don’t ask for anything. I don’t want to rest on being good or rest on anything I’m born with--I want to make something of myself. I want people to appreciate what I can do as opposed to just what I am., "Johnny Weir" by Gia Kourlas, October 17, 2011
