Taylor Swift is one of the most influential entertainers in the world. She just broke the Staples Center world record for most sold-out concerts, she’s one half of the highest-paid celebrity couple, she’s won multiple Grammy Awards, and she famously withheld her music from Spotify, even drafting an open letter to Apple about the lack of monetary value placed on music. “We don’t ask you for free iPhones,” she wrote. “Please don’t ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation.” Note: That letter caused the company to change its mind about not compensating artists for Apple Music’s three-month trial period… within 12 hours of T.Swift publishing the piece.
As you can see, there are many reasons to love Swift and be in awe of her success. But we view her unrelenting positivity as one of her strongest assets. This 25-year-old star (and captain of the most famous #GirlSquad of all time) has the confidence and wisdom of a woman beyond her years, and despite how many millions of albums she sells, she is always grateful and overwhelmed with joy over getting to do what she loves every day. We’ve put together a collection of Taylor Swift quotes on love, confidence, career, and friendship that, if adopted into your outlook on life, will undoubtedly make you a happier, stronger person.
