Elizabeth Taylor, 79, one of the world’s most famous actresses, died today in Los Angeles. Her stunning beauty, charisma and wealth along with eight marriages, 50 movies and tireless advocacy efforts on behalf of those afflicted with HIV/AIDS ensure that her legacy will endure.
To that end, I’ve pulled a few of her memorable quotations:
“Some of my best leading men have been dogs and horses.”
“I don’t remember much about ‘Cleopatra.’ There were a lot of other things going on.”
“One problem with people who have no vices is that they’re pretty sure to have some annoying virtues.”
“Success is a great deodorant. It takes away all your past smells.”
“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.”
“I, along with the critics, have never taken myself very seriously.”
“I will not be silenced and I will not give up and I will not be ignored.” (Referring to her HIV/AIDS charitable work)
Additionally, David Germain and Hillel Italie of the Associated Press wrote an excellent Taylor obit. To read it, visit: http://apne.ws/fk1lAm.
