Carrie Bradshaw quotes that stand out over others are often from a voice over narration at the beginning or end of an episode. Played by Sarah Jessica Parker, Carrie Bradshaw is the lead character in the television series turned movie "Sex in the City." She is a New York sex columnist who spends a lot of time with her three girlfriends. Through thick and thin, they navigate their professional and personal lives together. A lot of the best quotes from Carrie Bradshaw are thoughtful, timeless, and relatable.

  1. "Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous." This Carrie Bradshaw quote is the last one said in the television series "Sex in the City." During the series finale "An American Girl in Paris: Part Deux," this quote is said while the scenes are flashing between Carrie and her friends. Each girl has an individual scene showing where each of them are in their life. This Carrie Bradshaw quote perfectly sums up how far Carrie and her friends have personally evolved throughout the entire series.

  2. "I've spent $40,000 on shoes and I have no place to live? I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes!" During season four, episode sixteen "Ring A Ding Ding," Carrie's ex-boyfriend Aiden gives her the option of buying or moving out of her long-time apartment he bought. This Carrie Bradshaw quote is said while she is trying to figure out why she cannot afford to purchase her own apartment. Throughout "Sex in the City," the audience learns Carrie Bradshaw loves to purchase shoes, but this quote puts an actual dollar amount on how much she has spent.

  3. "You and I are so over we need a new word for it." Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big have an on-again, off-again relationship, which starts up again while he is married to Natasha. During season three, episode eleven "Running with Scissors," Natasha catches Carrie in her and Big's apartment. Natasha winds up falling down and chipping a tooth while she is chasing Carrie. This Carrie Bradshaw quote is said to Big at the hospital she takes Natasha to. Big tells Carrie he will call her, and she responds with this quote.

  4. "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 cites. People come into your life and people 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." This Carrie Bradshaw quote is a voice over narration said during the final scene in the episode "I Heart NY." It sums up the entire episode in which Miranda gives birth to her baby, and Mr. Big says bye to Carrie before he moves to California. Carrie ends up missing him the actual day he leaves, and when she walks into his empty apartmen,t she notices he left her an open ended plane ticket to California, which ties into the end of this quote.

  5. "A squirrel is just a rat in a cuter outfit." During the episode "Sex and the Country," Aiden takes Carrie to his cabin in the woods for the weekend. While in the kitchen, Carrie Bradshaw spots a squirrel and freaks out to Aiden. He informs her it is not a rat, but a squirrel and she responds with this quote. Despite Carrie Bradshaw being angry when she says this quote, it still comes off comedic.
