Some words of wisdom from Carrie Fisher

  • “Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die. ” 
  • “If my life wasn’t funny it would just be true, and that is unacceptable.” 
  • “Sometimes you can only find Heaven by slowly backing away from Hell.” 
  • “I feel I’m very sane about how crazy I am.” 
  • “And when you’re young you want to fit in. Hell, I still want to fit in with certain humans, but as you get older you get a little more discriminating.” 
  • “In my opinion, a problem derails your life and an inconvenience is not being able to get a nice seat on the un-derailed train.” 
  • “You know the bad thing about being a survivor… You keep having to get into difficult situations in order to show off your gift.” 
  • “There is no point at which you can say, ‘Well, I’m successful now. I might as well take a nap.” 
  • “No motive is pure. No one is good or bad-but a hearty mix of both. And sometimes life actually gives to you by taking away.”
