As the world mourns the untimely passing of Carrie Fisher, we remember the woman who immortalized Princess Leia for her wit, wisdom, and ability to overcome addiction and mental health issues to emerge as the wisecracking Dorothy Parker of her generation.  

Though she was known for those famous brown buns and her ability to thwart Darth Vader, Fisher emerged as a literary force to be reckoned with. She took her brutally honest and hilarious memoir Wishful Drinking all the way to Broadway, and her Postcards From the Edge became a film that chronicled her real-life battle with addiction.

The actress and author who battled bipolar disorder was refreshingly candid about her struggles. And her grit and sense of humor prove she was so much more than a princess; she was a queen. Take a look at these quotes that embody the spirit of a woman who was truly out of this world.
