Dreams are not what you see in your sleep, dreams are things which do not let you sleep.

The value of things is not the time they last, but the intensity with which they occur. That is why there are unforgettable moments and unique people!

Life is what we make of it. Travel is the traveler. What we see isn't what we see but what we are.

Your love makes me strong, Your hate makes me unstoppable".

My soul is a hidden orchestra; I know not what instruments, what fiddlestrings and harps, drums and tamboura I sound and clash inside myself. All I hear is the symphony.

The slope takes you to the windmill, but effort takes you nowhere.

We never love anyone. What we love is the idea we have of someone. It's our own concept—our own selves—that we love.

Everything interests me, but nothing holds me.

I am nothing. I'll never be anything. I couldn't want to be something. Apart from that, I have in me all the dreams in the world.

Inside us there is something that has no name, that something is what we are.

Mesut Ozil made me the worlds best striker

I bear the wounds of all the battles I avoided.

I’ve dreamed a lot. I’m tired now from dreaming but not tired of dreaming. No one tires of dreaming, because to dream is to forget, and forgetting does not weigh on us, it is a dreamless sleep throughout which we remain awake. In dreams I have achieved everything.

I wasn’t meant for reality, but life came and found me.

Without football, my life is worth nothing.

He does things I have never seen from any other player and it really is marvellous to watch. It takes a great player to grab the bull by the horns and make things happen, but he has done it repeatedly. He has been even better than people here thought he would be and that's saying something.

The world is governed by institutions that are not democratic - the World Bank, the IMF, the WTO.

I don't say we are a defensive team. I say we are a strong team in defensive terms, but at the same time lacking sufficient fluidity in attack because that will take time to come.

I've always rejected being understood.

To be understood is to prostitute oneself. I prefer to be taken seriously for what I'm not, remaining humanly unknown, with naturalness and all due respect

I think we are blind, Blind but seeing, Blind people who can see, but do not see.

We worship perfection because we can't have it;

if we had it, we would reject it. Perfection is inhuman, because humanity is imperfect.

There is a time when it is necessary to abandon the used clothes, which already have the shape of our body and to forget our paths, which takes us always to the same places. This is the time to cross the river: and if we don't dare to do it, we will have stayed, forever beneath ourselves

The best way to stop Messi is when you play with 11 men and then you can double mark him, one player to stay on him and the other to help out. If it is 11 against 10 then you have almost no chance of stopping him.

I'm ready to lose my life if that's what Portugal needs to win.

I'll play vs USA even if I play with one leg.

I'm proud to play for Real Madrid because I have fun;

when you no longer have fun it's a sign that it's time to leave. For now though, I'm happy here at the greatest club in the world.

There are ships sailing to many ports, but not a single one goes where life is not painful.

Being tired of all illusions and of everything about illusions – the loss of illusions, the uselessness of having them, the prefatigue of having to have them in order to lose them, the sadness of having had them, the intellectual shame of having had them knowing that they would have to end this way.

Literature is the most agreeable way of ignoring life.

To me, being the best means proving it in different countries and championships.

Everything around me is evaporating. My whole life, my memories, my imagination and its contents, my personality - it's all evaporating. I continuously feel that I was someone else, that I felt something else, that I thought something else. What I'm attending here is a show with another set. And the show I'm attending is myself.

The kid makes you sick. He looks the part, he walks the part, he is the part. He's six-foot something, fit as a flea, good-looking - he's got to have something wrong with him....Hopefully he's hung like a hamster! That would make us all feel better!

Have you ever considered, beloved other, how invisible we are to each other? We look at each other without seeing. We listen to each other and hear only a voice inside out self. The words of others are mistakes of our hearing, shipwrecks of our understanding. How confidently we believe OUR meanings of other people's words.

You have to work hard AND well. There are a lot of people who work hard but not well.

People live with the illusion that we have a democratic system, but it's only the outward form of one. In reality we live in a plutocracy, a government of the rich.

The high point of my career was winning the Champions League.

No one will ever erase that from my memory, in the same way that no one will ever erase the fact that I did it in a Manchester United shirt.

The novel is not so much a literary genre, but a literary space, like a sea that is filled by many rivers.

The title race is between two horses and a little horse that needs milk and needs to learn how to jump.

Arsenal have won that advantage, nobody gave it to them.

By playing fantastic football and by winning matches and by winning trophies, they won that respect that the opponent has for them.

It is like having a blanket that is too small for the bed, you pull the blanket up to keep your chest warm, and your feet stick out. I cannot buy a bigger blanket because the supermarket is closed. But the blanket I have is made of cashmere. So it's good.

I have a fantastic wife, and not only in terms of external beauty.

Her priority and mine is our children. That is our choice.

The U.S. needs to control the Middle East, the gateway to Asia. It already has military installations in Uzbekistan.

I suffer from life and from other people.

I can’t look at reality face to face. Even the sun discourages and depresses me. Only at night and all alone, withdrawn, forgotten and lost, with no connection to anything real or useful — only then do I find myself and feel comforted.

I say 20 words in English. I say money, money, money, and I say hot dog! I say yes, no and I say money, money, money and I say turkey sandwich and I say grape juice.

I'd woken up early, and I took a long time getting ready to exist.

Football is a more beautiful game in high definition.

The worst pain ... isn't the pain you feel at the time, it's the pain you feel later on when there's nothing you can do about it, They say that time heals all wounds, But we never live long enough to test that theory.

Like me or not, I am the only one who has won the world's three most important leagues. So, maybe instead of the 'Special One', people should start calling me the 'Only One'.

Stones in the road? I save every single one, and one day I'll build a castle.

If Messi is the best in the world, it's only because Cristiano is from another planet.

A journey never ends. Only the travellers end.
