Sarah Jessica Parker by Sorcha Lucky

Throughout television history it is safe to say that Sarah Jessica Parker is one of the most looked up to fashion icons. Carrie Bradshaw’s quotes have so genuinely affected the way I think I would like to perceive fashion. Her character portrays the life I would envy to have. Presumably because when I am an adult, I will never be able to spend as much money as Carrie did on drinks, her Barney’s addiction, and Manolo Blahniks a month, while paying rent for her elaborate apartment in the city. So to honor Sarah’s birthdays yesterday I put together some of the most important quotes from the oh-so-glamorous TV show, Sex and the City.

1) “Welcome to the age of uninnocence. No one has breakfast at Tiffany’s and no one has affairs to remember. Instead, we have breakfast at 7AM and affairs we try to forget as quickly as possible.”

2) “Maybe mistakes are what make our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Maybe if we had never veered off course we wouldn’t fall in love, have babies or be who we are. After all, things change. So do cities. People come into your life and they 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.”

3) “After all, computers crash, people die and relationships fall apart. The best we can do is breathe and reboot.”

4) “Soul mate. Two little words. One big concept. The belief that someone, somewhere is holding the key to your heart, and your dream house. All you have to do is find them. Where is this person? And if you love someone and it didn’t work out, does that mean they weren’t your soulmate? Are they just a runner up in this game show called ‘Happily Ever After’?”

5) “The longer I sat at that table, the more alone I felt. And it really hit me: I am 35 and alone!”

6) “When it comes to relationships, maybe we’re all in glass houses, and shouldn’t throw stones. Because you can never really know. Some people are settling down, some are settling and some people refuse to settle for anything less than Butterflies…”

7) “Sometimes we need to stop analyzing the past, stop planning the future, stop figuring out precisely how we feel, stop deciding exactly what we want, and just see what happens.”

8) “Eventually all the pieces fall into place….until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moment, and know that everything happens for a reason”

9) “The most important thing in life is your family. There are days you love them, and others you don’t. But, in the end, they’re the people you always come home to. Sometimes it’s the family you’re born into and sometimes it’s the one you make for yourself.”

10) “Oh my God! Do you know what these are? Manolo Blahnik Mary Janes! I thought these were an urban shoe myth!”

11) “Friendships don’t last for years,you have to invest in them.”

12) “I got to thinking about fate. That crazy concept that we’re not really responsible for the course our lives take. That it’s all predestined, written in the stars. Maybe that explains why, if you live in a city, where you can’t even see the stars, your love life tends to feel a little more random. And even if our every man, every kiss, every heartache, is pre-ordered from some cosmic catalogue, can we still take a wrong step and wander off our own personal milky way? I couldn’t help but wonder, can you make a mistake and miss your fate?”

13) “Did I ever really love Big or was I addicted to the pain, the exquisite pain, of wanting someone so unattainable?”

14) “Maybe all men are a drug. Sometimes they bring you down, and sometimes, like now, they get you so high.”
