If Evan hadn't skated before me and skated so well, I probably wouldn't have skated to the level I was pushed. So for me, it's very healthy to have a rivalry--as long as more than not I'm at the top top of the rivalry.

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 gives an interview, holds a press conference, blogs or tweets, or is caught on video, whether for his TV series, Be Good Johnny Weir, or at a non-profit fundraiser. It's time his quotes were collected and shared; hence this blog.
