Over the course of six seasons, Blair Waldorf served as queen in more ways than one on Gossip Girl. As memorable as she was for her fashion and ruling Manhattan, B also had a way with words.
A lot of the time, Blair was a great role model for young girls, especially when she respected herself as a woman, embraced her sexuality and fought for her dreams. Granted, she wasn’t the most ethical person. Stabbing someone in the back or blackmailing people was second nature to her. But when Gossip Girl came to an end, Blair sort of turned a corner in a good way.
It was hard not to root for her, like when she was delivering a memorable or noteworthy quote. Yes, much of what she had to say was mean, cruel, selfish and demeaning. But, believe it or not, there were times when Blair had serious words of wisdom.
And with that, here are our favorite Blair quotes of all time.
A classic Blair quote. And it's true. Sometimes, you have to be ruthless and keep on fighting to get what you want in life.
Preach, Blair. Don't sit around waiting for something to happen. Whether it's falling in love or finding the perfect job or making your dream come true, you have to make it a reality.
Mimosas make everything better.
Isn't that the truth? Don't let anyone or anything get in the way of your goals.
Who can ever forget this epic Season 2 scene where Blair wanted Chuck to say "I love you"? Sadly, he couldn't do it, but it made for an unforgettable moment.
Talk about an accurate description. Emotions can be the worst sometimes.
Look, not all men are bad. It's OK if you want to be in a relationship. But put yourself first and focus on what you want from life before love or marriage is an option. If you aren't happy with yourself, how can you be happy with someone else?
Yes, you are, Blair! Know your worth and recognize how amazing you are. You deserve to be treated like a destination, not a stop along the way.
Amen. If your partner doesn't treat you like you deserve, run like hell. Everyone in a relationship should be treated with respect.
Yes, Blair. Yes. Once you know what you want from life, what's stopping you? Go get it!
That's right, you do.
Shout it from the rooftops!
Seriously, what's worse than sitting at home sulking? If you can do it in Paris or at Disney World or with friends at a bar, those are much better options.
A classic Blair quote that just had to be included.
Blair always loved herself and knew how amazing she was in all parts of life. This is how everyone should view themselves.
Seriously, sometimes you become so angry every swear word in the book won't do the trick.
Like Blair survived without Chuck on multiple occasions, you, too, can survive on your own.
Not everyone is going to like you, and that's OK. Also, when it comes to getting what you want, well, sometimes you have to take a stronger approach than normal.
If someone doesn't make you feel sparkly, kick them to the curb. You deserve to shine, always.
Embrace your true self, and if you end up losing yourself along the way, you can always find yourself again.
Asking for help is a good thing, but sometimes it's up to you to steer yourself in the right direction and get the job done.
Sometimes you can only fight for so long for someone else and if it becomes too much in the process, it can be beyond exhausting. When or if it ever gets to that point, it's best to let them go and make yourself happy again.
Whether you were a fan of Blair or not, there's no denying she could uplift anyone with her wisdom.
