When I'm thirty years old I don't want to look back at Priscilla, someone I see more than my own mother, and remember her as a coach. I will remember her as my friend and someone who was always there for me no matter what, and in my opinion, that's what a good coach should be.

Happy 30th Birthday, Johnny!
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.
