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 hope that if even one person is inspired by my journey, and all the trials and tribulations that I've gone through simply to do what I believe in, I have the utmost respect for you, and I hope you continue marching to your own beat, you can continue on your own journey, and absolutely live every day, start to finish, to make yourself proud. And everybody else can deal with it.
