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 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.
