Elizabeth-taylor

Rest in peace, Elizabeth Taylor. I will always remember Elizabeth Taylor for her violet-eyed beauty, her stormy romances and eight marriages and her Oscar-winning performances. I also like her quotable quotes that shows snippets of her life:

Not at least until I’m dead, and at the moment I’m having too much fun being alive…and I plan on staying that way.

Every breath you take today should be with someone else in mind. I love you.

That is the thing that will give back to you all the rewards that there are. Don’t do it for yourself, because then it becomes selfish.

Give. Remember always to give. That is the thing that will make you grow.

You are who you are. All you can do in this world is help others to be who they are and better themselves and those around them.

Never let yourself think beyond your means…mental, emotional or any otherwise.

Always keep love and humility in your heart.

No one is going to play Elizabeth Taylor, but Elizabeth Taylor herself.

Humor is the only way to stay alive.

Because then it becomes about yourself…which is wrong. Giving is to give to God. Helping is to help others.

You find out who your real friends are when you’re involved in a scandal.

I suppose when they reach a certain age some men are afraid to grow up. It seems the older the men get, the younger their new wives get.

It’s not the having, it’s the getting.

Marriage is a great institution.

My mother says I didn’t open my eyes for eight days after I was born, but when I did, the first thing I saw was an engagement ring. I was hooked.

People who know me well, call me Elizabeth. I dislike Liz.

So much to do, so little done, such things to be.

Some of my best leading men have been dogs and horses.

Success is a great deodorant.

The problem with people who have no vices is that generally you can be pretty sure they’re going to have some pretty annoying virtues.

When people say, ‘She’s got everything’, I’ve got one answer – I haven’t had tomorrow.

You find out who your real friends are when you’re involved in a scandal.

Big girls need big diamonds.

Everything makes me nervous – except making films.

I adore wearing gems, but not because they are mine. You can’t possess radiance, you can only admire it.

I am a very committed wife. And I should be committed too – for being married so many times.

I don’t pretend to be an ordinary housewife.

I don’t think President Bush is doing anything at all about Aids. In fact, I’m not sure he even knows how to spell Aids.

I feel very adventurous. There are so many doors to be opened, and I’m not afraid to look behind them.

I fell off my pink cloud with a thud.

I have a woman’s body and a child’s emotions.

I haven’t read any of the autobiographies about me.

I really don’t remember much about Cleopatra. There were a lot of other things going on.

I suppose when they reach a certain age some men are afraid to grow up. It seems the older the men get, the younger their new wives get.

I sweat real sweat and I shake real shakes.

I think I’m finally growing up – and about time.

I’m a survivor – a living example of what people can go through and survive.

I’ve always admitted that I’m ruled by my passions.

I’ve been through it all, baby, I’m mother courage.

I’ve only slept with men I’ve been married to. How many women can make that claim?

If someone’s dumb enough to offer me a million dollars to make a picture, I’m certainly not dumb enough to turn it down.

It is strange that the years teach us patience; that the shorter our time, the greater our capacity for waiting.

A belly laugh increases the ability of your immune system to fight infections.

Richard is a very sexy man. He’s got that sort of jungle essence that one can sense.” (on Richard Burton)

One Thought on “I’m a survivor – a living example of what people can go through and survive.- Elizabeth Taylor

  1. She will truly be missed. I will always remember her for her violet eyes and beautiful countenance. Well…I hope she’s with her best friend Michael Jackson now…
