The Talk of Tinseltown
Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor 1932-2011

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

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

Big girls need big diamonds.

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?

My heart... my mind... are broken. I loved Michael with all my soul
and I can't imagine life without him. He will live in my heart
forever, but it's not enough. I don't think anyone
knew how much we loved each other.

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

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.

I hope with all my heart that I have made a difference in the lives of
people with AIDS. I want THAT to be my legacy."

Elizabeth took what life gave her and played her hand brilliantly. Sure she faltered but was able to rebound even higher. Life is ups and downs, successes and non-successes. She's the last of her kind and will be sorely missed. Thank you for the lovely tribute.

Of all the blogs and features I have read this week - and there have been many - you have the most beautiful collection of photos of Elizabeth Taylor that I have seen. Great quotes the $million one :)

She sure lived life to its fullest and was a true Hollywood star, they really don't make them like that anymore.

Hope you are feeling better :)

She leaves behind such a legacy. I am sad she is gone.

Karen M. Peterson said...

She's truly one of a kind.

I had a Liz Taylor day on Sunday. Watched a documentary about her, and then 4 1/2 hours of Cleopatra. And then I realized how few of her movies I've seen. That's a crime. She was extraordinary.
