Quotes by Coco Chanel

"The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud."

"A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous."

"It’s probably not just by chance that I’m alone. It would be very hard for a man to live with me, unless he’s terribly strong. And if he’s stronger than I, I’m the one who can’t live with him. … I’m neither smart nor stupid, but I don’t think I’m a run-of-the-mill person. I’ve been in business without being a businesswoman, I’ve loved without being a woman made only for love. The two men I’ve loved, I think, will remember me, on earth or in heaven, because men always remember a woman who caused them concern and uneasiness. I’ve done my best, in regard to people and to life, without precepts, but with a taste for justice."

"A girl should be two things: who and what she wants."

"Don't spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door."
