Michael Phelps Quotes

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

And, you know, being able to wear the stars and stripes, when you step up on one of the blocks or, you know, when you step off of an airplane or when you hear the national anthem play, you know, it’s one of the greatest feelings in the world because you know that there are people at home who are supporting you and watching you.

Michael Phelps QuotesThis is my 20th year in the sport. I’ve known swimming and that’s it. I don’t want to swim past age 30; if I continue after this Olympics, and come back in 2016, I’ll be 31. I’m looking forward to being able to see the other side of the fence.

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

I think sometimes I guess you see records, say you want to get there and use that as motivation. In a way, it’s kind of cool if there is a possibility to rewrite history and be up there with the greats of Olympic history.

I want to go to the World Cup. I want to go to the Masters. I want to go… anywhere.

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

The more you dream the more you achieve.

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.

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

It doesn’t matter what else is going on. When you walk into your arena or your – whatever you excel at, you’re there to take care of the job that you have to do.

Michael Phelps QuotesI 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 know it won’t be eight medals again. If you want to compare me to that, that’s your decision, not mine. I’m going out there to try to accomplish the things that I have in my mind and in my heart.

If I didn’t swim my best, I’d think about it at school, at dinner, with my friends. It would drive me crazy.

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

Michael Phelps QuotesIf you want to be the best, you have to do things that other people aren’t willing to do.

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

Michael Phelps QuotesI can’t remember the last day I didn’t train.

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

If I bring back only one gold people are going to say it’s a disappointment. But not too many of them own an Olympic gold medal so if I get one I’m going to be happy.
