"It struck me that the movies had spent more than half a century saying, ‘They lived happily ever after’ and the following quarter-century warning that they’ll be lucky to make it through the weekend. Possibly now we are entering a third era in which the movies will be sounding a note of cautious optimism: You know it just might work." —Nora Ephron in a 1989 interview about When Harry Met Sally
An appropriate quote about marriage for a momentous day. Nora, you are missed.

We’re very sad to report that beloved author and filmmaker, Nora Ephron, has died at the age of 71. More from The New York Times.

Nora Ephron stopped in the office today to sign copies of her new book I REMEMBER NOTHING (on sale 11/9/2010). Above is a favorite of some of the photos we snapped of her while she was in-house. Looking fabulous, Nora.

I’d known since I was a child that I was going to live in New York. Eventually, and that everything in between would be just an intermission. I’d spent all those years imagining what New York was going to be like. I thought it was going to be the most exciting, magical, fraught-with-possibility place that you could ever live; a place where if you really wanted something you might be able to get it; a place where I’d be surrounded by people I was dying to know; a place where I might be able to become the only thing worth being, a journalist.

And I’d turned out to be right.
