Posted: Updated:

Almost a year after Nora Ephron's death, we're still looking to the legendary author and filmmaker for guidance and wisdom.

Yesterday on HuffPost Live, we got to hear another piece of Ephron's best advice from the mout of one of her close friends, Lynda Obst, film producer and author of Sleepless In Hollywood. Obst joined host Ricky Camilleri to discuss her friendship with Ephron. According to Obst, the most important lesson Ephron taught her was how to face failure.

"We looked at it like baseball," Obst said. "The point of the game isn't just to win... it's just to realize that you're privileged, to try to get another shot at the bat."
