Carrie Fisher will forever be our Princess Leia, but she was also a talented screenwriter, playwright, and author—just to name a few of her many 'gigs.' We lost her on December 27, 2016, and a day later her mother, iconic actress Debbie Reynolds, left this world as well. With singer-actor Eddie Fisher as a father, Carrie Fisher truly seemed destined for stardom. But that doesn't mean her life was without its struggles, as her public battle with drug abuse and mental illness would suggest. Not one to hide from this, however, the actress would go on to detail all these challenges over several books and on social media, speak of them openly in interviews, and even engage in public speaking events on the subjects.
With so much focus on her death, it's easy to overlook that she would've turned 63 this October 21. But let's not! Instead, let's revisit Carrie Fisher's best quotes in this retrospective gallery.
