Christie Brinkley quotes: the hottiepreneur’s top quotes.

“Coming up in the industry now I would say a positive is that you’re so capable of steering your own career through social media and creating your own brand. Authenticity is really being appreciated now, more so than when I started my career. It gives us such a colorful prism to see the world through—different viewpoints; personalities; and unexpected, empowering moments. I think that’s a really beautiful, exciting thing and a powerful thing for people coming up in the business now. You don’t have to feel so stagnant or like you’re waiting for an opportunity. You’re making opportunities every day. That’s huge.”

“I really believe that being flexible and grateful contributes a lot to your happiness, which contributes to your health and contributes to your look.”

“I think that ultimately your age is determined by your attitude. It’s not the number; it’s not how many wrinkles you have on your face. It’s the energy that you project.”

“My age has so little to do with my image of myself because at a certain point, the number just didn’t fit how I felt. It has become irrelevant to me. I just don’t feel like that number is representative of my spirit, of my energy or my anything!”

“I don’t want to be younger, I just want to look it.”

“No matter what your age is, you only have now. So it’s always about living in the moment and being in the moment. I refuse to let those numbers define me, and I just try to face each day positively.”

“I really believe that the more informed you are about the benefits of a healthy bite versus the chain reaction that you’re going to put into effect in your body when you take that bite… you just suddenly don’t want to make that choice for yourself anymore. It’s beyond willpower at that point; it’s become a desire to do something good for yourself.”

“The key is to not stop moving. Once you start to stop moving, you rust. You got to just keep going. The important thing is to keep moving and to make it fun and have variety; it’s the spice of life.”

“I think laughter is the greatest de-stressor. Number one, call up a friend or your family and hang out. Don’t wallow in it. Just get out the door. Get outside. For me, get out of the house and take a walk. In nature is the best, but I can find nature growing through a crack in the sidewalk. That’s important. And of course, smiling! I really do think it has to do with an attitude of gratitude. An attitude of gratitude keeps you happy, and happiness is youthful.”

“When you feel great, you emanate a certain energy that translates as beautiful. I don’t care if you have the standard beauty or not; it’s that X-factor that comes through, and the basis of that is good health.”

“When you feel good, you look good. And vice versa: When you look good, you feel good.”

“My work makes me a better mom. It gives me a little door to step out of my parenting and bring the excitement from my day back home.”

“Your job as a parent is to listen. And to dole out as much love as you can. That includes tough love.”

“Like every parent, I give them advice to keep healthy and happy. But in other areas, it’s important they find what works for them and make their own mistakes. I define myself more as a support giver.”

“You learn so much from each child, just getting an opportunity to see the world through their eyes.”

“I taught my kids, wherever you are, there’s something to be grateful for. Gratitude is the key to a happy life.”

“When something bad happens to me, I think I’m able to deal with it in a pretty good way. That makes me lucky. Some people fall apart at the first little thing that happens.”

“My mom was always my biggest teacher, my inspiration, my role model. My mom was just the most amazing person. She was like a bon vivant in that she just lived each day to the fullest.”

“I never planned to be a model at all. I moved to Paris to study art, and I was there working as an artist, taking classes, and I had a little sick dog that I was using up all of my money to try and heal. It was right at that point that this photographer, Errol Sawyer, saw me at the phoning office and convinced me to let him take my photo.”
