When I was an undergrad and had just read The Sense & Sensibility Screenplay & Diaries by Emma Thompson, I developed a huge girl crush on her. (Huge.) I loved her intelligence and sense of humor and most of all her down-to-earth way of seeing things. So of course I would get a kick out of this quote attributed to her. Enjoy life as it comes, right?

P.S. Remember how she did her 1996 Golden Globes acceptance speech for Best Motion Picture Screenplay in character as Jane Austen? (Fast-forward to about 1:08.) And how could I forget her as Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing?
