Here is a list of quotes that inspired, shaped, or at least impacted me. Maybe some deep thoughts, maybe profound wisdom, or just generally good advice.

Quote #5 - Sharon Tate

This quote series honors Sharon Tate. She was an upcoming icon in Hollywood and her tragic death (by the manson family) shocked the world. If she hadn't died, there is a very good chance she would have become one of the greatest style icons of her generation. She was sweet, nice, and fashionable. And also very insightful.

Beauty is only a look. It has nothing to do with what I'm like inside.
Beauty on the outside is important. But you can fix your "outer beauty" with makeup, jewelry, or even surgery. Beauty on the inside, however, is forever.

I honestly don't understand the big fuss made over nudity and sex in films. It's silly.
It really is. We all should stop making a big deal out of nudity and sex. We all are nude under our clothes and we all know what sex looks like. There is no shame in any of that.

I guess I kind of lived in a fairytale world... looking at everything through rose-colored glasses. I probably always will, to a certain extent.
You choose how you see the world. Is it full of mean idiots that want to harm you, or is it full of nice people and endless opportunities? Only you can decide. So put your rose-colored glasses on and choose to be happy.

And my father was rather strict with me and my two younger sisters. He insisted on proper behaviour and very often vetoed our choices of boyfriends. There was always a curfew whenever my sisters or I would go out on a date — we had to be home on time or else. But I never resented his authority. In fact, I'm thankful for my strict upbringing; I feel it has helped me learn discipline — and that's very important in this business.
Discipline really helps a lot. Not only in show business but in life. Don't be a slob, don't be a bitch. Be a nice, well mannered girl that follows direction - and life will be much easier and more pleasant.

I still have this teddy bear I've had since I was three...and all my boxes, all kinds of boxes. I just won't give them up. It's like if I give them up, I've given in to being a movie star. 
Never ever let go of your childhood happiness. Revisit those awesome memories whenever you want. You can go back to adulting later.

I'd like to be a fairy princess — a little golden doll with gossamer wings, in a voile dress, adorned with bright, shiny things. I see that as something totally pure and beautiful. Everything that's realistic has some sort of ugliness in it. Even a flower is ugly when it wilts, a bird when it seeks its prey, the ocean when it becomes violent.
Your vision and dreams will always be unrealistic, but that is fine. Real life is sometimes rough and sometimes wild. It is what we make of it that matters.

I can't play games. I have friends, older women, who tell me I'm foolish to let Roman know how deeply I care about him. They tell me all sorts of things like "keep a man guessing", "men become bored with too much devotion". They tell me I am being foolish. Well, foolish I am.
Honesty always reigns supreme. Foolish girls get their prince charming.

We have a good arrangement. Roman lies to me and I pretend to believe him.
The basis of any successful relationship :D

Quote #4

To be completely woman you need a master, and in him a compass for your life. You need a man you can look up to and respect. If you dethrone him it's no wonder that you are discontented, and discontented women are not loved for long. - Marlene Dietrich

Marlene Dietrich is one of the greatest exports of Germany of all time, my Mom adored her. And that quote, it rings soooo true...

She was not only a great actress but also a fashion icon. And we shouldn't forget how she introduced lesbo-scenes to Hollywood with her famous kiss in Morocco, in the year 1930 no less. In the same year, she also had her famous Falling in love again scene, which by today's standards is not that sexy of course, but for the 1930s it was kinda scandalous.

Quote #3 - Zsa Zsa Gabor

This is a small quote series to honor Zsa Zsa Gabor. One of the pop culture Queens of the 20th century. The press even titled her "the most successful courtesan of the 20th century" and if that is not something to look up to, i don't know what is. She also starred in lots of movies, most noteworthy Moulin Rouge, which is one of the best movies ever made.

She also knew lots about Men since she was married 8 times. So she definitely knew how to get a Man, only with keeping him she wasn't as successful. We should learn from her wisdom as there aren't that many good role models available in our generation.

The best way to attract a man is to have a magnificent bosom and a half-size brain and let both of them show.

Husbands are like fires - they go out when unattended.

One of my theories is: men love with their eyes; women love with their ears.

What is really important for a woman, you know, even more than being beautiful or intelligent, is to be entertaining.

The only place men want depth in a woman is in her decolletage.

Being jealous of a beautiful woman is not going to make you more beautiful.

Quote #2

If you look at sculptures from hundreds of years ago, everyone's naked. It's not a bad thing. - Gigi Hadid

Gigi Hadid is one of my idols. She has the best hair in the whole universe and i guess if you are a Victoria's Secret Angel, your body can't be that bad either. And she is super smart for a girl. What is the problem with nudity? Why do we need to hide our bodies? Why should we be ashamed of ourselves? Shouldn't we celebrate our bodies?

Quote #1

Some German here (Marlene Dietrich, Germany's best export until Heidi Klum), but in simple English it translates to

If you want to have beautiful legs, you have to bask them in male gazes or If you want to have beautiful legs, you have to let men massage them with their stares.

It might get a bit philosophical but it means that to have a certain feature (the legs here) and to be proud about it, you gotta show it off. You gotta soak in the stares, the gazes, the desires of Men. Saying you have a cute butt is Ok, but to really make it an outstanding feature, you have to bask your butt in male gazes.

This male lust that you ignite feeds you the necessary confidence you need to epitomize it. We girls are like vampires - we need the compliments (especially the non-verbal ones like stares) and we feed off them and they give us the conviction that we are sexy. It is one thing to tell yourself that, but a whole other world when you see Men react to yourself.
