Top 100 Money Quotes of All Time

quotes of wisdom about love

Fashion icon, socialite, and artist Gloria Vanderbilt has died at the age of 95. "Gloria Vanderbilt was an extraordinary woman who loved life and lived it on her own terms," her son, Anderson Cooper, said in a CNN broadcast after confirming her passing. "What an extraordinary life. What an extraordinary mom. What an incredible woman."

In honor of her life, take a look back at some of Gloria's greatest quotes on happiness, love, and the power of supporting other women, here:

On living with purpose:

"We are not put on this earth to see through one another. We are put on this earth to see one another through."

On supporting other women:

"I've always believed that one woman's success can only help another woman's success."

On happiness:

"To be happy—one must find one's bliss”

On hope:

"You must always have great, secret, big fat hopes for yourself in love and in life. The bigger, the better.”

On death:

"Death is the price you paid for being born."

On not worrying about what other people think:

"I've never let myself dwell on what other people think of me. You can never change their minds so why waste time trying?"

On love:

"I’m always in love. If it’s not with a man, it’s something else. I love beauty. I love the sky I see outside your window. There’s so much beauty in the world."

On the perils of fame:

"The craving to be famous is like an insidious disease, no matter how well known you become it's never enough, it never satisfies."

On life:
"I have a tremendous appetite for life; the phone rings and your whole life could change."

On living with pain:

"I think that without pain, we can't know what joy is. And that is very sustaining for me because that is what life is. If we don't have pain, we don't have joy and if we don't have pain, we don't know that we're alive."

On maintaining mystery in the age of social media:

"I think less is probably more where Instagram is concerned. These days people seem to want to show every little thing about themselves, where is the fun in that? There is nothing wrong with a little mystery, is there?"

On being truthful:

"If one is telling the truth, there’s nothing to fear. It’s very freeing."

On home decor:

"Decorating is autobiography."

On the importance of art:

"Art brings a message into a room. It should make us perceive in a new way—either through color, form or narrative content—something we had not perceived before. And perhaps reveal something to you about yourself.

quotes of wisdom about love

William Blake was an English poet, painter, and printmaker. Both his paintings and writings was not recognized during his lifetime and struggled close to poverty for much of his life.

However, Blake is now considered an essential figure in the history of poetry and visual arts. His visual artistry led Jonathan Jones (British art critic) to regard him as “the greatest artist Britain has ever produced.”

Blake poured his whole being into his works. Unlike most painters, Blake worked on a small scale, and most of his engravings and paintings are only inches in height, yet the detailed rendering is exquisitely superb.

Blake’s works earned far more public acclaim after his death and are now hugely admired by artists and critics alike. Listed below are the top 56 William Blake quotes and sayings that explore his views about love, imagination, wisdom, and many more.

2. “Beauty grows in you to the extent that love grows, because charity itself is the soul’s beauty.”

24. “Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.”

25. “The words printed here are concepts. You must go through the experiences.”
