  • At 13, I was fearless. I looked at everything so positive. When you're older and been through it all, you know how bad it can get. There is a fear of failing.[1]
  • As a child, I'd wonder, 'When I die, will people still remember me 1,000 years later?' And without the gold medal … Well, the Olympics are the ultimate achievement in my sport. At times I think, 'Why should I push myself all those long hours in the rink?' But then I think, 'How will I ever know how good I could have been?' I want to be the Michael Jordan of my sport.[2]
[Responding to her 9th US Championships title]
  • It's incredible. Nine? Wow. I just remember winning my first one, getting the medal and the plate, the pin with the diamond for first place. My ninth title, I have no answer for that because I never thought it would be possible.[3]
    身邊的你有多好
    擁吻有多好 興奮過早
    彼此的愛無退路
    前無去路 推進不到
    纏綿若幸福 幸福怎觸不到
    未到結束 戀愛便停步
    徘徊在苦惱 要別去偏又來互抱
    你我都 用時限去對賭
  *談戀愛不講將來
    和你減省了壓迫換來是否體恤慷慨
    像沒人越難越愛
    為你感恩兼感慨 如此苦苦掙扎還留餘力在灌溉
    對殘葉自說未來
    誰知我這位蠢才
    陪你堅守這困境自殘地把出口封蓋
    如害怕分開 死不悔改
    停滯在樽頸的戀愛
    怕掙脫障礙 動心一刻 更不再
    纏綿若幸福 幸福怎觸不到
    未到結束 早已像前度
    寧願未知道 擁著我的熱情盡耗
    永遠都 像甜蜜正好
    重唱 *
    誰知我這位蠢才
    陪你堅守這困境自殘地把出口封蓋
    如害怕分開 死不悔改
    停滯在樽頸的戀愛
    怕掙脫障礙 認清心死 在節哀
    應該相信愛情還好嗎
    應否欺騙我們尚有牽掛
    如從前全力對罵 再可怕 不怕
    磨折慘不過恨愛僵化
    談戀愛不講將來
    和你的 下半生又憑什麼彼此相愛
    願望瓶內全是愛
    但我感恩中感慨 或許不必刻意遺留名份被記載
    叫殘念別記起來
    全因我這位蠢才
    能夠啃得了惡果 為你把畢生封蓋
    才沒有分開 不必悔改
    磨蝕在樽頸的戀愛
    各適應冷待 或可堪稱 最親愛
    最親愛
