Here are some inspirational quotes by Diana Vreeland, one of history’s most celebrated fashion editors, whose life took her from Belle Epoque in Paris to Studio 54 in New York. To those who haven’t seen the documentary about her ‘The Eye Has to Travel’, I can strongly recommend it.
“You know the greatest thing is passion, without it what have you got? I mean if you love someone you can love them as much as you can love them but if it isn’t a passion, it isn’t burning, it isn’t on fire, you haven’t lived.”
“There’s only one very good life and that’s the life you know you want and you make it yourself.”
“You gotta have style. It helps you get down the stairs. It helps you get up in the morning. It’s a way of life. Without it, you’re nobody. I’m not talking about lots of clothes.”
“The first rule that a geisha is taught, at the age of nine, is to be charming to other women…Every girl in the world should have geisha training.”
“Prohibition. Insane idea. Try to keep me from taking a swallow of this tea and I’ll drink the whole pot.”
