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 would never have the strength to stand up here in front of all you people and talk without index cards, or without thinking about what I was going to say up here, without this table of people especially right mother and father, who...inspire me every single day to not really give a shit what anyone thinks, to do exactly exactly what I want.
