“Maybe some women aren't meant to be tamed. Maybe they just need to run free until they find someone just as wild to run with them.
-Carrie Bradshaw”
Candace Bushnell

Candace Bushnell, Sex and the City

Candace Bushnell
“If you smile, even if you’re feeling bad, the action of the muscles will trick your brain into thinking you’re happy”
Candace Bushnell, The Carrie Diaries

Candace Bushnell
“Guys are like dogs: they never notice if you've changed your hair, but they can sense when there's another guy sniffing around their territory”
Candace Bushnell, The Carrie Diaries

Candace Bushnell
“I know I have to do the right thing. And the sooner you do the right thing, the better. You get it over with, and you don't have to worry about it anymore. But who does that in real life? Instead, you procrastinate and think about it and put it off and think about it some more until that one little pebble grows into a giant block inside your head.”
Candace Bushnell, The Carrie Diaries

Julie James
“Seriously, Jack, I think you might be the only guy in this city who hasn’t read his stuff. Collin McCann is like the Carrie Bradshaw of Chicago men.”
“You mean Terry Bradshaw,” Jack corrected.
“No, Carrie,” Wilkins repeated. “You know, Sarah Jessica Parker. Sex and the City.”
A silence fell over the room as Collin and Jack stared at Wilkins, seriously fearing for the fate of men.”
Julie James, Something About You

Candace Bushnell
“I don't like to think of myself as a 'virgin'. I prefer to think of myself as 'sexually incomplete'. You know. Like I haven't finished the course yet.”
Candace Bushnell, The Carrie Diaries

Candace Bushnell
“Have I become the girl who waits by the phone, hoping it will ring, who asks a friend to dial her number to make sure the phone is working?”
Candace Bushnell, Summer and the City

Candace Bushnell
“I’ve never understood sexy lingerie. I mean, what’s the point? The guy’s only going to take it off.”
Candace Bushnell, Summer and the City

Candace Bushnell
“Why do magazines do this to women?” Miranda complains now, glaring at Vogue. “It’s all about creating insecurity. Trying to make women feel like they’re not good enough. And when women don’t feel like they’re good enough, guess what?”
“What?” I ask, picking up the grocery bag.
“Men win. That’s how they keep us down,” she concludes.
“Except the problem with women’s magazines is that they’re written by women,” I point out.
“That only shows you how deep this thing goes. Men have made women coconspirators in their own oppression. I mean, if you spend all your time worrying about leg hair, how can you possibly have time to take over the world?”
Candace Bushnell, Summer and the City

Candace Bushnell
“Maybe you can’t have it both ways. His life and your life. How do you put two lives together, anyway?”
Candace Bushnell, Summer and the City

Candace Bushnell
“Only the “˜intercourse’ part.” Miranda makes quotation marks with her fingers. “Why do they call it intercourse anyway? It makes it sound like it’s some kind of conversation. Which it isn’t. It’s penetration, pure and simple. There’s no give-and-take involved.”
“It’s an act of war,” Miranda objects, getting heated.
“The penis is saying, “˜Let me in,’ and the vagina is saying, “˜Get the hell away from me, creep.”
Candace Bushnell, Summer and the City

Candace Bushnell
“I’m a realist. Just because you had sex once doesn’t mean you have to fall in love.”
Candace Bushnell, Summer and the City

Candace Bushnell
“I really liked it.” She covers her mouth in horror.
“If I like sex, do you think it means I can’t be a feminist?”
“No.” I shake my head. “Because being a feminist -- I think it means being in charge of your sexuality. You decide who you want to have sex with. It means not trading your sexuality for… other things.”
“Like marrying some gross guy who you’re not in love with just so you can have a nice house with a picket fence.”
“Or marrying a rich old geezer. Or a guy who expects you to cook him dinner every night and take care of the children,” I say, thinking of Samantha.
“Or a guy who makes you have sex with him whenever he wants, even if you don’t,” Miranda concludes.
We look at each other in triumph, as if we’ve finally solved one of the world’s great problems.”
Candace Bushnell, Summer and the City

Candace Bushnell
“ve become a handmaiden to other people’s relationships. Aiding and abetting. And now I’m al alone. Thank God for Miranda. I’ll always have her. Miranda will never have a relationship. So where the hell is she?

“Having sex,” she repeats. She slides onto the cushion. “I met a guy and we’ve been having nonstop sex for the last two days. And the worst thing about it? I couldn’t poop. I honestly could not poop until he finally left this morning.”

“He’s not the best-looking guy. But I told myself that looks aren’t everything. And he really is smart. Which can be a turn-on. I’ve always said I’d rather be with a smart, ugly guy than a goodlooking dumb guy. Because what are you going to talk about with a dumb guy?”

“So then,” Miranda continues, “we’re walking through the Mews -- that cute little cobblestoned street -- and suddenly he pushes me up against the wall and starts making out with me!”

“I hardly know him,” she giggles, “but so what? If it’s right, it’s right, don’t you think?”
Candace Bushnell, Summer and the City

Candace Bushnell
“On the other hand, it seemed to be working. For Samantha, anyway. And in comparison, my own relationship with Bernard was sorely lacking. Not only in sex, but in the simple fact that I still wasn’t sure I was ever going to see him again. I guess the best thing about living with a guy is that you know you’re going to see him again. I mean, he has to come home at some point, right?”
Candace Bushnell, Summer and the City

Candace Bushnell
“I sit back on my heels. “Aw, sweetie. You can always get another shopping bag--”
“But I can’t get another Marty,” she wails. “It’s me, Carrie. There’s something wrong with me. I drive guys away.”
Candace Bushnell, Summer and the City

Candace Bushnell
“Lots of famous people are late bloomers. My father says it’s an advantage to be a late bloomer. Because when good things start happening, you’re ready for it.”
Candace Bushnell, Summer and the City

Candace Bushnell
“Babies! That’s all it’s about. Who ever knew the world would be all about babies?” Samantha shouts.
“Every time I see a baby, I swear, I want to throw up,” Miranda says.
“I did throw up once.” I nod eagerly. “I saw a filthy bib, and that was it.”
“Why don’t these people just get cats and a litter box?” Samantha asks.”
Candace Bushnell, Summer and the City

Candace Bushnell
“What?” She gasps. “Who did you do it with? You can’t go out there and pick up some random stranger. Oh no, Carrie. You didn’t. You didn’t pick up some guy at a bar.”
Candace Bushnell, Summer and the City

Candace Bushnell
“He’s probably one of those “love the one you’re with” guys -- meaning he automatically goes after whatever woman happens to be around when he’s feeling horny."
"Just another reason why I’ll never get married," I say, getting out of the car.
“Oh, Carrie.” He sighs. “I feel sorry for you, then. I worry that you’ll never find true love.”
Candace Bushnell, Summer and the City
