R.I.P. Nora Ephron: A Tribute in Quotes to the Lady in Black

“Can’t we just stop pretending that anything is ever going to be the new black?”— Love, Loss, and What I Wore

“Sometimes I buy something that isn’t black, and I put it on and I am so sorry.”— Love, Loss, and What I Wore

"If anyone young is reading this, go, right this minute, put on a bikini, and don’t take it off until you’re 34." —I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Reflections on Being a Woman

"This is the season when a clutch of successful women who have it all give speeches to women like you and say, to be perfectly honest, you can’t have it all. Maybe young women don’t wonder whether they can have it all any longer, but in case of you are wondering, of course you can have it all. What are you going to do? Everything, is my guess. It will be a little messy, but embrace the mess. It will be complicated, but rejoice in the complications. It will not be anything like what you think it will be like, but surprises are good for you. And don’t be frightened: you can always change your mind. I know: I’ve had four careers and three husbands.” —Ephron’s 1996 commencement speech at Wellesly College
