Comedian and Fashion Police host, Joan Rivers died yesterday afternoon at the age of 81 after suffering a seizure during a throat surgery.

Rivers did not just become a household name for just being a comedienne but was known for her outspoken nature. The famous entertainer remarked once: "I succeeded by saying what everyone else is thinking."

Christian Post rounded up 10 of her most famous quotes, including her thoughts on life after death.

  1. "I don't exercise. If God wanted us to bend over, he'd put diamonds on the floor."

  2. "With all the plastic surgery I've had I'm worried that when I die, God won't recognise me."

  3. "I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can't make it through one door, I'll go through another door - or I'll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present."

  4. "The fashion magazines are suggesting that women wear clothes that are 'age appropriate.' For me that would be a shroud."

  5. "At my funeral, I want Meryl Streep crying in five different accents."

  6. "On my bucket list, my number one is: wake up. I'm not afraid of death. My father was a doctor, so I was around death all my life, I was very used to it...because he was a sh***y doctor."

  7. "We all mourn in our own way. I mourn with a great steak."

  8. "I've had so much plastic surgery, when I die, they'll donate my body to Tupperware."

  9. "I enjoy life when things are happening. I don't care if it's good things or bad things. That means you're alive. Things are happening."

  10. "The first time I see a jogger smiling, I'll consider it."
