|What A Dame|
I think the best way to honor her passing is to let her own brilliant words speak for themselves...Carrie On!
"I always wrote. I wrote from when I was 12. That was therapeutic for me in those days. I wrote things to get them out of feeling them, and onto paper. So writing in a way saved me, kept me company. I did the traditional thing with falling in love with words, reading books and underlining lines I liked and words I didn't know"
"I am mentally ill. I can say that. I am not ashamed of that. I survived that, I'm still surviving it, but bring it on. Better me than you"
"No, as it turns out, I really like being congratulated on my weight loss. I like it so much, it's tragic"
"I was street smart, but unfortunately the street was Rodeo Drive"
"The world of manic depression is a world of bad judgment calls"
"Leia follows me like a vague smell"
"I'll never be known for my work with boundaries"
"I'm very sane about how crazy I am"
"Anything you can do in excess for the wrong reasons is exciting to me"
"I am truly a product of Hollywood in-breeding. When two celebrities mate, someone like me is the result"
