Michael Phelps quotes

Every day after I wake up, I think, 'Wait... this can't be real; I'm still going to wake up.'

I can't remember the last day I didn't train.

I consider myself normal. I've spent 20 years in the pool. I consider that something that's normal.

I learned how fast you can go from being an international hero to being a reference in a joke on a late night talk show.

There were times I wouldn't come to practice, because it didn't excite me. It wasn't interesting. I was kind of going through the motions.

I like to just think of myself as a normal person who just has a passion, has a goal and a dream and goes out and does it. And that's really how I've always lived my life.

Even in high school, I'd tell my mom I was sick of swimming and wanted to try to play golf. She wasn't too happy. She'd say, 'Think about this.' And I'd always end up getting back in the pool.

I think to be - for me to be an American is - you know, it's one of the greatest things in the world for - you know, for me just because I've been able to grow up with everything. The freedom. You know, in my eyes this is the greatest country in the world.

You can't put a limit on anything. The more you dream, the farther you get.

Swimming is normal for me. I'm relaxed. I'm comfortable, and I know my surroundings. It's my home.

I won't predict anything historic. But nothing is impossible.

I think that everything is possible as long as you put your mind to it and you put the work and time into it. I think your mind really controls everything.

I think goals should never be easy, they should force you to work, even if they are uncomfortable at the time.

I want to be able to look back and say, 'I've done everything I can, and I was successful.' I don't want to look back and say I should have done this or that. I'd like to change things for the younger generation of swimmers coming along.

I feel most at home in the water. I disappear. That's where I belong.

I want to test my maximum and see how much I can do. And I want to change the world of swimming.

I have reached a place in my life where I need to sit down and say, 'Well, what do I do? What's best for me?' I need to look into options for the future.

I wouldn't say anything is impossible. I think that everything is possible as long as you put your mind to it and put the work and time into it.

I always thought, it would be neat to make the Olympic team.

I'm the same kind of guy before all this happened.
