ice skaters quotes

Victor sees the glass as half full, I see it as half empty; that’s why we make a good team. Mila, on the other hand, just drinks right out of the bottle. Georgi wonders why it has to be glass and Yurio usually breaks the glass by putting his feet up on the table.
—  Yuuri Katsuki, describing the Russian skating team
Figure skating is unlike any other sport. It is graceful, yet full of strength. Beautiful, yet strong. The goal is to make jumps and spins look easy, when in reality they are harder than anything skaters face in life. One wrong edge, one wrong placement of any body part, and a jump can fail. Skating is about confidence, grace, hope, trust, strength, and commitment.

Explaining his fashion:
  • Yurio: It’s called being a “g,” dad!
  • Victor: Why do you want to be a letter that’s only worth two points in scrabble?
  • Yurio: What does it matter? I’m adopted.
  • Yuuri: What? OH MY GOD. WHO TOLD YOU? *looks at Victor* I thought we’d agreed we’d wait until he was older...
