Johnny Weir

His quotes needed to be collected and shared; hence this blog.

[W]hen you hear bad things about yourself, they make you so strong and so angry that you find yourself improving from that.

Part Two: Balance," interview by Shigesato Itoi on July 5, 2013, posted on October 28, 2013


  1. Johnny, although I completely don't agree with some aspects of your life I would never say anything bad about you. I hope someday we meet so we can talk for a minute or two.
