    I did find a site that questioned whether it was a Buddha quote by a person who also stated they had read a lot of The Buddha.

    That person doesn't have definitive proof of someone else saying it. Merely, like you he said it was a paraphrase of  the statement.  He thinks it attributable to Emmit Fox in the 1930''s.  Another person thinks it's goes back to St Augustine, who supposedly said something similar.

    Several versions of the quote have in fact been around since long before Carrie Fisher was born.  So that pretty much rules her out as the originator, paraphrased or otherwise.

    I really appreciate you returning and attempting to post source links.  The tone of your reply to the diarist was rude and condescending. And you were wrong as to the origin.

    Nevertheless  I give you many points for coming back with links. It changes the perception I had of you in a good way.

    Thank you.
