11 Wise Lessons – Essential Wisdom for Life

wisdom quotes about life lessons

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.

What You Will Learn

What is the Meaning of Love?

If you have chosen to be your best even when the other person you are with isn't at their best, then you have chosen to love this person, and this person is likely your best friend. Love is more than a feeling; it should also be considered an enacted emotion.

And if you'd like to take your romance to the next level, then we recommend two things:

Quotes on Loving Life

One of the sad things in life is that we don’t live our life backward, Benjamin Button style. How great would it be to couple the wisdom of age with the energy of youth by living backward?

Unfortunately, that is not the way things work.

In life, we gain important pieces of wisdom through experience and practicing a few of the 23 strategies for daily self-improvement.

All that said, there is a lot of wisdom that can be found by looking at quotes from people who have learned to love life.  Here are a few of our favorites:

“How many things have to happen to you before something occurs to you?” – Robert Frost

The Meaning of Friendship

One thing that life experiences teach us is that you never get “something for nothing”.

To see what I’m talking about, check out these 155 Methods of Rewarding Yourself.

Love is another area where time and experience bring wisdom. Love is something most people are looking for, either directly or indirectly.

The following wise quotes talk about the importance of forming lifelong friendships that enrich and enhance your daily routine. In essence, when you have great friends, you’ll surround yourself with great conversations where you can know one another on a deep level.    

When discovering the real meaning of friendship, you need to realize that the friendship goes beyond simply sharing your time together; it is sharing long-lasting time together while developing a meaningful connection.

However, it is also important to remember that friendship can mean different things to different people, but it is all around inspiring as you will see by all of the inspiring quotes we have included below:

​Quotes About Friendship ​

​“Growing apart doesn’t change the fact that for a long time, we grew side by side; our roots will always be tangled. I’m glad for that.” – Ally Condie

​“Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you; spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.” – Amy Poehler

​“Friendship is the most constant, the most enduring the most basic part of love.” – Ed Cunningham

Some of these quotes on friendship are wonderful. In some ways, I feel good friendship can be as important as love. Actually, friendship can be a form of love itself.

When it comes to habits, one of the most important aspects of friendship is the “mirror” a good friend can provide, like in the George Herbert wise friendship quote above.

This “mirror” is essentially accountability and is one of the single most powerful tools for achieving success with your habits. Find out more about accountability and what it can do for you here.
