The 15 Best Things Carrie Bradshaw Has Ever Said

Carrie, Carrie, Carrie. Sex and the City was one of the best shows on television. When it ended, my best girlfriends and I made it a priority to see the first movie. I have yet to see every episode of the series, but the days when E! is playing episode after episode... there go all my plans. Carrie Bradshaw is at the top of my list of women I aspire to be like--the fact that she's a fictional character has no impact on the matter. Sarah Jessica Parker played her extraordinarily well and tossed up the lines that have become a staple in (almost) every twenty-something girl's quotes to live by. If you're not quite convinced, read on and tell me that Carrie Bradshaw is not one of the smartest television characters of all time... Blair Waldorf being a close second.

1. "When you’re young, your whole life is about the pursuit of fun. Then you grow up and learn to be cautious. You could break a bone or a heart. You look before you leap, and sometimes you don’t leap at all because there’s not always someone there to catch you. And in life there’s no safety net. When did it stop being fun and start being scary?"

2. "Some people are settling down, some people are settling, and some people refuse to settle for anything less than butterflies."

3. "Maybe the past is like an anchor holding us back. Maybe, you have to let go of who you were to become who you will be."

4. "After all, seasons change, so do cities; people come into your life and people go. But it’s comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you’re very lucky, a plane ride away."

5. "I like my money where I can see it—hanging in my closet."

6. "There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging, and significant relationship is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone
 to love the you you love, well that's just fabulous."

7. "The fact is, sometimes it’s really hard to walk in a single woman’s shoes. That’s why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun."

8. "I will never be the woman with the perfect hair, who can wear white and not spill on it."

9. "The universe may not play fair, but at least it has a hell of a sense of humor."

10. "Being single used to mean that nobody wanted you. Now it means you’re pretty sexy and you’re taking your time deciding how you want your life to be and who you want to spend it with."

11. "Life gives you a lot of chances to screw up, which means you have just as many chances to get it right."

12. "Don't forget to fall in love with yourself first."

13. "Sometimes you gotta quit thinking so much. If it feels right, it probably is. So just go with it."

14. "Somewhere out there is another little freak who will love us and understand us and kiss our three heads and make it all better."

And my personal favorite...

15. "They say nothing lasts forever; dreams change, trends come and go, but friendships never go out of style."

Keep your friends close ladies; more often than not, they'll be your saving grace.
