I don't know how many great Brazilians have played in the Olympics and not been able to win it.

I was never motivated by money.

I'm not scared. I always go forward, trying to create space and make my way toward the goal.

I'm always learning. I have to.

I only want to be the best that I can be.

I was at a great club at Barcelona. I loved Barcelona.

The Libertadores is sensational, but the Champions League... The first time I heard the anthem was a really special feeling. It's like being in a video game; it's living the dream of every child.

Every team going to Brazil 2014 will be there to win, and it's going to be a fiercely contested World Cup.

The first game is always the most difficult, for the nerves you have before you begin to play.

Benzema is a great striker who I think is a superstar.

I was quite nervous in my first week at Barcelona, but after that, I was relaxed.

I know that it is a huge responsibility to be the captain, the No. 10, but I like it. I like the responsibility, the pressure, and I like playing football.

I do not play football to win the Ballon d'Or. I play football to be happy, because I love it and want to play football.

I will be a World Cup winner.

I prefer beating Real Madrid to beating Manchester City!

Cristiano Ronaldo has created his own story, and now I'm creating mine.

I've always had the greatest respect for and listened to both my father and my mother. I've always tried to follow my parents' advice because these are people who want the best for me.

A historic defeat cannot bow our heads forever.

I'm always happy, in every game, every win I keep writing my history, and I hope to do even more from now on.

Messi deserves to win this World Cup for all he has done for football.

Imagine you're 24 years old, earning what I earn and having all that I have. Wouldn't you be the same as me?

I try to be a good role model for my son, my family, my friends, and then I try to be a good role model for the rest of the people, too.

I try to be myself without being anything different.

You always knows what's best for you.

I am proud of every one of my teammates.

I've always said I learned to defend myself from an opponent coming for a hard hit. Tricks are part of my repertoire; I use them to try to get past my opponents, but the objective is always to score goals.

I just like playing with the ball. I always have.

I don't want to surpass Messi.

I have always kept in mind the advice of Ronaldinho, and he spoke wonders of Barcelona and the city, which he told me is marvellous.

Right now I'm living my boyhood dream, which was to play for a European club. The fact that it's a huge club like Barcelona makes it a tremendous honour. I like everything about the city: the climate, the people. It's quite similar to Brazil, which helps a lot. There's even a beach!

Everything in my life has happened very early, personally and professionally.

I'm very happy that major players are always giving their opinions about my life, my game. I am very thankful for that.

I don't mind being the one people talk about. It doesn't weigh on me.

It was a huge thrill to win the Confederations Cup.

I'm only one Neymar - for my family, for the public. I'm always the same person.

I don't want to surpass anyone. I don't want to be better than anyone else.

Football, particularly Brazilian football, is about being happy, and that's what tricks do. It's part of our culture, at the end of the day, though, it's all about winning.

There weren't many options growing up, so I would wear whatever possible. I once saw a little boy wearing Jordan sneakers in a movie... and that made me dream.

I don't feel hatred for Zuniga.

I don't compare tournaments.

I believe Philippe Coutinho is a player who would totally fit in Barcelona.

Every team has a person who is used as a reference, a player who stands out more than others.

It is easier when you like to work with your companions.

I can't be compared to Pele. I need to do so much more to be compared to Pele. Pele is fantastic. And he's unique.

I like to go out and have fun with my friends. I have family, too, so why can't I go out to clubs? I can, and I will.

It's good for Brazilian football to have idols, stars, big stars coming back to Brazilian clubs. The tournaments become much better, more interesting. Ze Roberto, Juninho Pernambucano, Ronaldinho Gaucho, and other players who have returned to Brazil strengthen the league and improve the tournaments.

It doesn't matter who scores the goals, just that we win the games.

When I arrived at Barcelona and saw Messi's face, and later Luis Suarez, I felt like it was a videogame.

I just want to be better every day, to get better every day, not to be better than anyone else.
