11 Gordon Ramsay Quotes To Live By

Wise words we aim for, as dished out by celebrity chef, Gordon Ramsay.

Celebrity Chef, Gordon Ramsay, has cooked up the attention of many adoring fans. From his famously savage insults to his many videos and television shows, Ramsay never fails to keep audiences entertained. What we don’t know, is that aside from the hilarious digs, he’s also dished out some inspirational quotes to live by.

1. Moving on from past experiences

“I don't like looking back. I'm always constantly looking forward. I'm not the one to sort of sit and cry over spilt milk. I'm too busy looking for the next cow.”

2. The true language of cooking

“Cooking is about passion, so it may look slightly temperamental in a way that it's too assertive to the naked eye.”

3. Kitchens are a force to be reckoned with

“Kitchens are hard environments and they form incredibly strong characters.”

4. Vulgarity and its place in this world

“Swearing is industry language. For as long as we're alive it's not going to change. You've got to be boisterous to get results.”

5. Finding who you are

“I am what I am. A fighter.”

6. Loving what you do

“I cook, I create, I'm incredibly excited by what I do, I've still got a lot to achieve.”

7. Relationships with others

“The minute you start compromising for the sake of massaging somebody's ego, that's it, game over.”

8. Career vs Home Life

“I think every chef, not just in America, but across the world, has a double-edged sword - two jackets, one that's driven, a self-confessed perfectionist, thoroughbred, hate incompetence and switch off the stove, take off the jacket and become a family man.”

9. Bouncing back from times of error

“I've had a lot of success; I've had failures, so I learn from the failure.”

10. To keep going, and never stop

“If I relaxed, if I took my foot off the gas, I would probably die.”

11. Even something for when traveling with a significant other

“If I can give you one strong piece of advice, when you go away for that romantic weekend, whatever you do, do not accept or take the upgrade to the honeymoon suite.”

Here's What I've Learned After Moving 5 Times During College

It isn't easy, but man does it prepare you.


By the time I was 18, I had moved once. I was in one house until I was nine, and then I was in the second house until I graduated high school. Clearly, that left me with little to no experience with what moving is like. Since I graduated high school, I have moved four times and am in the process of my fifth.

I moved from my parents' house to my dorm, then my dorm to my first apartment, then my parents' old house to my parents' new house, then my first apartment to my second apartment, and now my second apartment to my third apartment. At one point in my life, I had three or four different places that my stuff could have been in.

The nightmare of having no idea where anything was at was very, very real.

I have no idea how to help someone when they have four different places like that, but I can help if you feel like you have two or three.

My biggest piece of advice? Don't worry about which one is "home" if you aren't sure. My freshman year, I called my parents' house home. My sophomore year, I alternated between calling my parents' house and my apartment home. My junior year, I finally started calling my apartment home. Really, though, I don't feel like I have a set place. All of that is completely fine.

It's also totally ok (with parental approval) to use your parents' place as storage for things you can't bring with you (for whatever reason) but still want to keep. As long as you know what's there and actually want to keep it and intend on bringing it with you at some point, it's totally fine. (Again, with parental approval.)

My more functional piece of advice: do your research. Yes, it's intentionally vague because you really need to do a lot of research about a lot of topics. What different apartments are there, and what do reviews say? What amenities are you guaranteed? What utilities are included free? What utilities do you have to find on your own? How about parking? What do you need to pack/buy for that new place?

Believe me, you won't remember everything or get it right for the first place. Or on the second try. Or even the third try.

Like I said, I'm moving into my third apartment, and while I hope I've finally done it all right, I'm sure I'll find out I've overlooked something.

Don't worry about it.

You're in college, so people should be expecting some mistakes. You should expect yourself to make mistakes. That's what college is all about: making mistakes and learning from them.

So while moving during college isn't the most glamorous thing ever (like what movies have portrayed), it's a very necessary part in the "growing up" process we're all going through.
