Ronnie O'Sullivan Quotes.
I’ve been semi-successful. I’ve done all right but I’m not the player I was. Who do I think will win the world championship? John Higgins. Have I been good for snooker? I don’t know.
I don’t think I suffered with depression, I don’t think I’m a depressed type of person – I just think I suffered a depression to do with snooker, and I just couldn’t handle it. I could go out and play, but take me out of there and I couldn’t do life. It was a nightmare, my life just felt like a bit of a nightmare.
The relentless pursuit of perfection has been my problem over the years. It’s maybe held me back.
People think I don’t like interviews but I don’t mind speaking about proper and interesting stuff. When it’s stupid stuff to build your image and you are told to mention this and mention that, I hate it.
Looking for perfection is the only way to motivate yourself.
