Acum mai bine de 20 de ani, Darren Star, creatorul serialelor Melrose Place și Beverly Hills, 90210, a început audițiile pentru un nou show, unul despre sex, relații și prietenia dintre femei, intitulat Sex and the City. Și le-a găsit pe  Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis și Cynthia Nixon, cele care aveau să devină cunoscute în întreaga lume drept Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte și Miranda din SATC.

Primul episod din Sex and the City a avut premiera pe 6 iunie 1998 (și Gabriel Macht, Harvey din Suits, a fost în el – un motiv numai bun să îl revăd right now! :D), așa că astăzi sărbătorim aniversarea de 20 de ani a serialului printr-o serie de 20 de citate pline de înțelepciune de la the one and only… Carrie Bradshaw.

  • “I like my money where I can see it – hanging in my closet.”

  • “When I first moved to New York and I was totally broke, sometimes I bought Vogue instead of dinner. I found it fed me more.”

  • “The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.”
  • “You shouldn’t have to sacrifice who you are just because somebody else has a problem with it.”
  • “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.”
  • “Maybe some women aren’t meant to be tamed. Maybe they need to run free. Until they find someone, just as wild to run with.”
  • “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.”
  • “And finally, the most important break up rule: no matter who broke your heart, or how long it takes to heal, you’ll never go through it without your friends.”

  • “They say nothing lasts forever; dreams change, trends come and go, but friendships never go out of style.”
  • “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.”
  • “I’m looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other love.”
  • “When men attempt bold gestures, generally it’s considered romantic. When women do it, it’s often considered desperate or psycho.”

  • “The hard thing about fighting in relationships is that there’s no referee. There’s no one to tell you which comments are below the belt. As a result, someone usually gets hurt.” 
  • “Some love stories aren’t epic novels, some are short stories… But, that doesn’t make them any less filled with love.”
  • “Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course we wouldn’t fall in love, or have babies, or be who we are. 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.”
  • “Life gives you lots of chances to screw up which means you have just as many chances to get it right.”
  • “Don’t forget to fall in love with yourself first.”
  • “As we drive along this road called life, occasionally a gal will find herself a little lost. And when that happens, I guess she has to let go of the coulda, shoulda, woulda and buckle up and just keep going.”
  • “After all, computers crash, people die, relationships fall apart. The best we can do is breathe and reboot.”
  • “It wasn’t logic, it was love.”
