An artist’s concern is to capture beauty wherever he finds it.
Everything is beautiful only so long as it does not concern us.
You must play boldly to win.
Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening – and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.
Everyone I built a course for thinks they have the best golf course in the world and I’m very pleased and proud of that.
I’ve always wanted to become a professional soccer player.
Whenever people say “women’s soccer,” I want to correct them to say “soccer.” Every girl has had their sport diminished because they’re girls.
I could be a model for one night. But I’m also a professional soccer player, and I like to be taken seriously on the field.
One thing I’m proud to do like a girl is to represent my country in the Olympics and at the highest level, at the highest platform that I can.
Sportsmanship is definitely an important thing in all sports. In soccer, we all respect each other on such a high level, between Sweden and Brazil and Japan or whatever team it is.
We’re going to be World Champions…forever.
I started off playing sports when I was five years old. I played three or four sports all throughout the year.
I have done ‘Sports Illustrated,’ but I don’t regret it because it portrayed me in a positive way – as an athlete.
My favorite goals are the ones when there’s so much pressure. I focus more when the game is on the line.
I was the biggest tomboy growing up. Now I love playing with a full face of makeup.
When I leave the game, I want to go out on top.
I could always score goals. I loved that feeling of having your team look to you, that feeling of leadership.
I find my motivation from everyone who looks up to me and my teammates. From the little girls that look up to me and tell me they want to be like me when they grow up.
I don’t think the entire world respects women in sport. But if FIFA start respecting the women’s game more, others will follow.
I think a goal is a goal and not all my goals are pretty.
