Carrie Fisher was a remarkable actress the world will surely miss. She rose to fame in her indomitable portrayal of Princess Leia Organa in Star Wars when she was just 19. Even though her role as the outer space princess followed her throughout life — she was also an amazing screenwriter, author, and memoirist — who wrote with fearless honesty and cunning wit.

Fisher wrote in her 2008 memoir Wishful Drinking, "I tell my younger friends that no matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra.” Unfortunately, her death was not as romantic. Fisher suffered a massive heart-attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles and sadly died less than a week later at the age of 60.

Fisher was candid about her ups and downs in life. She spoke truthfully about her struggle with mental health issues and drug addiction, often with unforgettable razor-sharp humor. Her twitter bio reads, “There’s no room for demons when you're self-possessed”. She's also known for her sarcastic and wise remarks about the double standards women face, especially as they age, which made her all the more memorable and likable.

Here are 7 quotes to honor this fearless princess.

1. “Women are a lot better than men really. Especially during wartime. We look way better in outfits.”

5. "I went to a doctor and told him I felt normal on acid, that I was a light bulb in a world of moths. That is what the manic state is like."

 7. "What I always wanna tell young people now: Pay attention. This isn't gonna happen again. Rather than try to understand it as it's going along, have it go along for a while and then understand it."
