Ashton Eaton quotes

I won't back down. I get a satisfaction from being tested and defeating the test.

There's never going to be a decathlon that you're going to have 10 events that your satisfied with. You're always, always going to be dissatisfied in something, and that always draws you back to try to retry that the next time you do a decathlon. It's like you go for the perfect 10.

I think a challenge for myself is to see how many times I can get above 9,000. That would be a good challenge.

That is when the crowd really lifted me. That last 600 meters I was not running with my own legs. It was incredible.

I want to see where I measure up against everyone in the world and everyone who has ever competed in the sport, and there's that innate sense of wanting to challenge myself. I'm competitive in all aspects.

I'm not maximized yet.

The desire definitely comes from within. There are only a few people who make it to this level and those are the ones who have that innate desire.

The thing I like about decathlon is also the thing I dislike: It's the maximum challenge, but also the maximum frustration.

The great thing about this is, and not to pump my own tires, but I feel like I'm not maximized yet. I feel like I can still run faster, jump higher, which I think makes it special. Hopefully, going to London, I'll be welcomed into the decathlon community.

My goal in Korea is to win. There's no timetable when to set the American record.

When I see my mom in the stands, it always pushes me to succeed.

Water is to me, I confess, a phenomenon which continually awakens new feelings of wonder as often as I view it. Michael Faraday quotes

I grew up loving horses. I was relatively obsessed, starting with my rocking horse at age 2, all the way through my painting and drawing phase. Diane Lane

Feminism is not just about women; it's about letting all people lead fuller lives. Jane Fonda
