Sci-Fi Princess Carrie Fisher’s Most Inspiring Quotes

When it comes to remembering Carrie Fisher, a lot of people remember her quite differently. Diversity and talent, neatly sown into a kick-ass package, Carrie Fisher has been a woman to remember. Recently, the Princess-Actress-Writer-and-Script_Doctor Fisher said goodbye to the land of the living and went on to pursue her solo adventures across the stars.

Hence, here’s to remembering Carrie Fisher by taking a look at some of the most inspiring things she said during her 60 years during her stay here on the planet we call home:

  1. “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.”
  2. “Acting engenders and harbors qualities that are best left way behind in adolescence.”
  3. “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. The less the merrier. Chairs it is. I must furnish my heart with feelings for furniture.”
  4. “There is no point at which you can say, ‘Well, I’m successful now. I might as well take a nap.’”
  5. “You know what’s funny about death? I mean other than absolutely nothing at all? You’d think we could remember finding out we weren’t immortal. Sometimes I see children sobbing at airports and I think, ‘Aww. They’ve just been told.’”
  6. “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.”
  7. “I envy people who have the capacity to sit with another human being and find them endlessly interesting, I would rather watch TV. Of course this becomes eventually known to the other person.”
  8. “It’s a man’s world and show business is a man’s meal, with women generously sprinkled through it like overqualified spice.”
  9. “The only thing worse than being hurt is everyone knowing that you’re hurt.”
  10. “I quote fictional characters, because I’m a fictional character myself!”

Accountant by Degree. Writer by Profession. Poet by Heart and Stargazer in her head, legend (and by that we mean The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy) has it that Tania didn't choose writing. Instead, writing took one look at her chubby face when she was just a young girl and smiled with a mouthful of unspoken sentences and took her off on adventures of the pen that are still her happy place when life gets hard for her. Now, all grown up, Tania spends her days doing what she loves: writing, in the hopes that someday, her audience will love her back enough to send multiple cups of chaye her way. You can get in touch with her via the comments section, her email id (If you can find it???) and her Facebook page where she's known, quite simply, as Raggedy Khatoon. Live long and prosper!
