Favorite Quotes: Carrie Fisher

favorite quotes from Space Mom

“I don’t want life to imitate art. I want life to be art.”

I love reading all the quote posts that go around so I wanted to participate. Reading The Princess Diarist made me remember how much I loved Carrie Fisher’s writing and how easy it is to connect with her. So below are some of my all time favorites and like a lot of great quotes many of them have found me just when I needed to hear them.

“If my life wasn’t funny it would just be true, and that is unacceptable.”

“Youth and beauty are not accomplishments.”

General Leia Organa

“Find an equivalent of killing a giant space slug in your head and celebrate that…”

“I don’t want to make anyone else look stupid. That’s a privilege I reserve for myself.”

“The only thing worse than being hurt is everyone knowing that your hurt.”

“No motive is pure. No one is good or bad- but a hearty mix of both.”

Hoth Leia

And my top three favorites:

“No matter how I go, I want it to be reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra.”

“Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow.”

And lastly:

“God never gives us more than we can handle, so if he gives you a lot, take it as a compliment.”
