Quote by Sarah Hughes
I think what every skater dreams of is not only skating the best program they can possibly skate, but, y'know, having the crowd roar at the end, and it was just so loud I couldn't even hear my music.
This quote captures the essence of a skater's dream. It goes beyond simply executing a flawless routine; it expresses the desire for an electric connection with the audience. The skater yearns for the deafening roar of the crowd, reaching such intensity that it drowns out the music. This explains the deep longing for the perfect performance, one that evokes an overwhelming emotional response from spectators, making their dreams come true.
Let us admit, without bitterness, that the individual has his distinct interests and can, without felony, stipulate for those interests and defend them. The present has its pardonable amount of egotism; momentary life has its claims, and cannot be expected to sacrifice itself incessantly to the future. The generation which is in its turn passing over the earth is not forced to abridge its life for the sake of the generations, its equals after all, whose turn shall come later on.
