Let’s be honest. Gossip Girl wouldn’t be as fun and interesting without the Queen B, herself, Blair Waldorf. With her chic and preppy sense of fashion, her queen bee attitude and her crazy schemes, it’s not surprising that everyone ended falling in love with her over and over in every season. And just like every iconic character, Blair has her own great list of quotable quotes that fans can’t help but reference in every chance they get.
With a Gossip Girl reboot on its way, we can’t help but anticipate who the next queen bee of Upper East Side would be and what iconic lines she would leave us with. But for now, let’s go back to these 8 iconic lines from Queen B that every girl should remember.
“If you really want something, you don’t stop for anyone or anything until you get it.”
It’s true that kindness is rewarding and selflessness is a virtue. How we wish everything in the real world live up to that ideal.
Remember, we all have to climb our way up that success ladder in our killer heels, sneakers or laced up boots. And like Queen B said, we must not let anyone hold us back from achieving our dreams.
“I’m not a stop along the way, I’m a destination.”
Just like Queen B, you should never let anyone treat you like a mere second choice.
A girl must always know her worth. You are special and there are things that only you can bring to this world. If the people around you can’t recognize the effort that you’re pouring into your craft then maybe it’s time for you to move on. You don’t need such negativity in your life.
“You deserve a guy who would move mountains to be with you if he had to.”
You are a lady and a lady deserves the best treatment she can get from her man. Let him prove to you that he is worth the love you’re giving him and that he can reciprocate that love.
However, you don’t get the right to act like an entitled brat. You must also learn to reciprocate your lover’s efforts. If he’s willing to move mountains for you, then have the courage to cross oceans for him.
“Oh, my life is so bountiful. I don’t need a boyfriend to be fulfilled.”
There’s no need to worry if you’re not very lucky with your love life. Sure it’s always a good and warm feeling when you have someone special, but your happiness must not rely solely on someone else’s company.
Think of entering a relationship as buying an expensive pair of designer shoes. It’s a luxury, not a necessity. They make us happy but we can definitely live without them.
“They say Rome wasn’t built in a day. And yet what a difference a day makes.”
Here’s a reminder that even the smallest things we do can have a great impact in the future.
Don’t be discouraged by how little you had accomplished each day. Even the smallest progress can lead to the creation of a masterpiece.
“We’re not servants to our emotions. We can control them, suppress them, stomp them out like bugs.”
We all witnessed Blair go through all kinds of embarrassing or painful situations and, each time, we see her hold her head up high and find a way out of the mess she’s in.
Sure, most of her schemes were often prompted by her emotions, but she always try to push them aside and use her wits when it’s time to work the actual plotting.
“You need to be cold to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off.”
Much like the previous quote, this is a reminder not to rely on your emotions to lead you through life. Doing so doesn’t lead to anything good most of the times.
Remember, Blair didn’t get her title by just following her heart. Just like Queen B, a girl must use her wits to her advantage and watch her back at all times. We don’t recommend you to start organizing grand schemes just like her, though. First, most of them are too mean. Second, all of them required a fat bank account.
“Fashion is the most powerful art there is. It’s movement, design and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we’d like to be.”
Yes, we all know fashion is still considered by many as a shallow luxury. But we’ve all seen how an individual’s style can give us an idea of what they’re like as a person. Just look at the way Blair’s chic preppy style had been imprinted in our minds as the standard queen bee outfit.
So, the next time people ask you why you bother dressing up and put so much effort in looking good everyday, just drop this quote on them.
