I have lived my life to be Johnny Weir. I haven’t lived my life to be a letter in an acronym. I work very hard as an athlete, as a person, as a loved one, and that’s what life is about. It isn’t about adhering to something that you’re supposed to adhere to.

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.
