17 times Blair Waldorf said exactly what was on our mind

It wasn’t that long ago that Gossip Girl was one of the most popular shows around. Even though the world has changed so much since it first aired a decade ago, Gossip Girl will always hold a special place in our hearts. This is especially true for the queen of the Upper East Side herself, Blair Waldorf. Seriously, how many times did Blair say exactly what was on our minds but that we’d never have the guts to actually say out loud to another human being?

Blair was the perfect mean girl, partially because she really was a softie deep down. When it comes to friendship, true love, or just having the perfect outfit for the gala, Blair (played by our forever hero Leighton Meester) always knew what was up.

Here are all of the times Blair Waldorf seemed to know the inner workings of our heads.

1“I’m not a stop along the way. I’m a destination.”

Blair always knew her worth.

2“If you really want something, you don’t stop for anyone or anything until you get it.”

Like Chuck Bass or control of the universe, for example.

3“Once men have tasted caviar it baffles me how they settle for catfish.”

Seriously, what is wrong with them?

4“Well here’s my advice. Have a little faith.. and if that doesn’t work, a lot of mimosas.”

The solution to any problem.

5“Destiny is for losers. It’s just a stupid excuse to wait for things to happen instead of making them happen.”

You have to take what you want sometimes.

6“We’re not servants to our emotions. We can control them, suppress them, stomp them out like bugs.”

Therapy, Waldorf-style.

7“As you can see, I survived without you.”

We need to remember this next time our ex booty calls us.

8“You need to be cold to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off.”

If anyone knew how to be queen, it was Blair.

9“I don’t need friends.I need more champagne.”

Hey, this seems reasonable to us.

10“Whoever said money doesn’t buy happiness didn’t know where to shop.”

A bit jaded for someone so young, but probably not totally wrong.

11“People don’t write sonnets about being compatible, or novels about shared life goals and stimulating conversation. The great loves are the crazy ones.”

She was always such a hopeless romantic.

12“You can’t make people love you, but you can make them fear you.”

Oh, our little Machiavellian princess.

13“Oh, my life is so bountiful. I don’t need a boyfriend to feel fulfilled.”

But it never hurts, right?

14“A girl wants Romeo, not Hamlet.”

TRUE THO. Blair does not mess around.

15“What I want is to become a powerful woman.”

When was she NOT?

16“We can’t let the men of our past define us.”

Or anything from the past for that matter.

17“If you’re going to be sad, you might as well be sad in Paris.”

This is why she’s Queen B.
