Favourite Quotes of My Vintage Idols

I think everyone needs a little inspiration from time to time. I definitely need it, especially on Mondays, which is why for quite some time now I’ve been posting inspirational quotes tagged #motivationmonday on my fanpage.

I also look for inspiration in the people I admire. Personally, I find that even decades ago the women who are my idols today had some wise things to say. Their quotes remind me to stay focused on making my dreams come true and on being kind to myself. And since I’m a big believer in karma, today I want to share these inspirations with you!

What about you, do you have your favourite quotes that you like to come back to?

Mae West quotes

You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. (Mae West)

Audrey Hepburn quote

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years. (Audrey Hepburn)

Eartha Kitt quotes

It’s all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self love deficit. (Eartha Kitt)

Marilyn Monroe quote

I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. (Marilyn Monroe)

The last quote is by a contemporary star, but hey, very vintage-inspired!

Dita Von Teese quote

You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there’s still going to be somebody who hates peaches. (Dita Von Teese)
