Quotes By Cristiano Ronaldo
Talent without working hard is nothing.
When you lose a person you love so much, surviving the loss is difficult.
In football, I don’t have a lot of friends. The people who I really trust, there are not many… Most of the time, I’m alone.
I’m living a dream I never want to wake up from.
I see myself as the best footballer in the world. If you don’t believe you are the best, then you will never achieve all that you are capable of.
Many people look at me and think they know me but they don’t at all. This is the real me. I am a humble person, a feeling person. A person who cares about others, who wants to help others.
I’m not going to change the world. You’re not going to change the world. But we can help – we can all help.
