Quotes

#Quote
1[observation, 2015] For all intents and purposes, I'm a woman.
2The ability to grow is directly related to the amount of insecurity you can take in your life.
3[appearing in a glamorous photo on the cover of Vanity Fair in 2015] I'm so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self.
4We put so much pressure on kids to excel in school at such a young age.
5I always thought everybody else was better than me.
6When the time comes for your brain to process the information, the second word comes up faster than the first one. So when it's in your head, all of a sudden, it comes out backwards and you think of the word backwards.
7It's about working when nobody's watching.
8Our mission for younger people is to do our best to make exercise cool, hip - the thing to do.
9It caused more problems as a young kid, because the simple process of perceiving words on a piece of paper was hard for me. Many people think dyslexic people see things backwards. They don't see things backwards.
10Nobody has milked one performance better than me - and I'm damned proud of it.
11I spent twelve years training for a career that was over in a week. Joe Namath spent one week training for a career that lasted twelve years.
12If you're going to dedicate every second to winning the decathlon, what are you doing wasting your time in bed?
13I thought everybody else was doing much better than I was.
14The truth is everybody does it from time to time. People dial telephone numbers and they get a wrong number only to find that they've read the last two digits backwards. Everybody does it, but dyslexics have this tendency to a higher degree.
15Waving the flag at the 1976 Olympics wasn't my idea. It was too much apple pie and ice cream. Not that I don't love my country, but I felt it was my victory up there, I put all the time into it.
16I still have nightmares about taking tests.
17I learned that the only way you are going to get anywhere in life is to work hard at it. Whether you're a musician, a writer, an athlete or a businessman, there is no getting around it. If you do, you'll win - if you don't, you won't.
18First of all, I try to be a positive role model.
19The biggest problem with dyslexic kids is not the perceptual problem, it is their perception of themselves. That was my biggest problem.
20If you're asking your kids to exercise, then you better do it, too. Practice what you preach.
21If I wasn't dyslexic, I probably wouldn't have won the Games. If I had been a better reader, then that would have come easily, sports would have come easily... and I never would have realized that the way you get ahead in life is hard work.
22That's the most important thing you do in your life - raise children and try to do the best job as a parent and give your kids the best shot in life to go out there into the big, bad world.
23Start early and begin raising the bar throughout the day.
24If I had not been dyslexic, I wouldn't have needed sports. I would have been like every other kid. Instead, I found my one thing, and I was never going to let go of it. That little dyslexic kid is always in the back of your head.
25If you are dyslexic, your eyes work fine, your brain works fine, but there is a little short circuit in the wire that goes between the eye and the brain. Reading is not a fluid process.
26I always felt that my greatest asset was not my physical ability, it was my mental ability.
27If you are a kid, reading is really important stuff.
28I am from the Kardashian group. We can take anything.
29I was growing up in the 50's and 60's. Back then they didn't even know what dyslexia was.
30I didn't only have a perceptual problem, I was also so nervous and so upset. The process just didn't work. I lost enthusiasm for school and I flunked second grade. The teachers said I was lazy.
31I was a dyslexic kid.
32I'm the type of guy who fails and fails and fails, and then, as if failure has become sick of him, succeeds.
