The Devil Wears Prada has taught us a lot in life, such as how to dress, how not to let our jobs be our lives, not to push everyone who truly cares about us away, how to do the impossible, how to immerse ourselves in a world that is foreign to us, and how to adapt. Most importantly, it has taught people to stay true to who they are and to be themselves.

There is no point in being someone else or conforming as you will be crushed, defeated, and feel empty, like your life is missing something. Along with all the lessons that are within this one awesome movie, there are amazing lines that are applicable to the world today and work wonders for various scenarios and situations.
