List of Michael Phelps quotes.

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.


Being compared to Ian Thorpe, that could be one of the greatest compliments you could ever get in swimming - being compared to him and Mark Spitz.
