Bode Miller quotes

There's so many guys skiing so fast right now that you really have to be willing to take a lot of risks if you want to give yourself a chance to win. I'm prepared to do it; it's just a matter of if I can make it work.

One kid's old, used-up equipment is another kid's brand-new, awesome, awesome equipment.

Sometimes it's all about the win, sometimes it's about the skiing.

I had to think about ankle torsion, where the screws are on the ski, how that affects the forces going into the ski and how the ski bends, your leverage points. It was a challenge. I was having the greatest time, making the mistakes, crashing.

Obviously, you always want to win, but you want to win by skiing a race that you're proud of and you feel like you really challenged yourself and left it all out there.

A huge adrenaline rush is usually followed by a pretty low point.

Eventually I'd like to have a family. I'd like to not be limping around when I'm 50 years old.

From 1999 to 2003 was the peak of equipment in ski racing. Since then, it's all gone in the wrong direction.

I always do the contrary of what my coaches tell me.

I don't put anything in front of taking ski racing and sports seriously.

I like to keep my private life private for the most part.

I'm still having fun and as long as skiing is enjoyable, I'm going to continue to do it.

It's important for me to live my life honestly.

It's nice, being brought up with no money at all. It's just not how I measure success, so that makes it a bunch easier.

It's not quite as important who you beat as that you end up on top.

My goal is the same as every year - to not hurt myself.

Once the season starts for me, there isn't a change in my focus, just a change in my tactics and strategies.

People in the U.S. will watch anything if it's put in front of their face over and over again. I like to see what's possible, more than anything.

The same people who recognize I came out with no medals should recognize I could have won three.

When you back off, it's easier to do mistakes. For me it's better to ski fast.
