Just days after suffering a heart attack aboard a flight en route to Los Angeles, beloved actress, author, and screenwriter Carrie Carrie fisher the princess diarist pdf passed away at the age of 60 on December 27, 2016. Though she struggled with alcoholism, drug addiction, and mental illness, Fisher always maintained a sense of humor—as evidenced by the 30 memorable quotes below. I am truly a product of Hollywood in-breeding.
When two celebrities mate, someone like me is the result. I was born into big celebrity. At a certain point in my early twenties, my mother started to become worried about my obviously ever-increasing drug ingestion. So she ended up doing what any concerned parent would do. I was street smart, but unfortunately the street was Rodeo Drive.
If anything, my mother taught me how to sur-thrive. As you get older, the pickings get slimmer, but the people don’t. People are still asking me if I knew Star Wars was going to be that big of a hit. The only one who didn’t know was George. Leia follows me like a vague smell. Every time I look in the mirror, I have to send Lucas a couple of bucks. People see me and they squeal like tropical birds or seals stranded on the beach.
You’re not really famous until you’re a Pez dispenser. There is no point at which you can say, ‘Well, I’m successful now. I might as well take a nap. I’m very sane about how crazy I am.
Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die. Someone has to stand still for you to love them. My choices are always on the run. I’ve got to stop getting obsessed with human beings and fall in love with a chair. Chairs have everything human beings have to offer, and less, which is obviously what I need. Less emotional feedback, less warmth, less approval, less patience, and less response. I must furnish my heart with feelings for furniture.
