“Not everyone likes everything. Some do not. and Twitter too sometimes reproach. I read, take note, but you can not let it in the soul: because then nothing happens. Yes I’m still on this path alone. Why am I torturing myself, feel, try to go on? And why not, why not try it?”

—Evgeni Plushenko, on those who criticize him, and the eternal question of “why?”

A few more, because for a moment there, I felt this strangest illusion…that as long as he has the ice itself on his side, then time’s got nothing on him

“What surprises you? Louis Pasteur once instilled himself with smallpox. Why Plushenko cannot speak at the fifth Olympics? Acts of extraordinary people do not need to be measured by mediocre yardsticks.”

-Alexei Mishin, on the news that Evgeni said he will try to continue 

I think Papa Mishin has said similar words before, and he is repeating them now—perhaps because they bear repeating.

I don’t even have the faintest idea how far he will get, and I realize a lot of people are saying this is madness and making predictions, dire and otherwise. For myself, I don’t even know whether I think it is madness or not. But in the end, all it means is that many of us do not understand. And that’s not necessarily a statement about him. Maybe it is a statement about us.¬†
