Great words of wisdom. I especially appreciate #5.


Robin Willams words are so deep, so true, and so very

sad 😢. Reading them gave me goosebumps considering his tragic end.


Thank for posting, I enjoy 😉 reading your posts.

seems like everyone with a big head has lots of quotes... here are some by Elizabeth Taylor. ( She hated being called Liz)


1: "Big girls need big diamonds"

2: "I've always admitted that I'm ruled by my passions."

3: "I fell off my pink cloud with a thud."

4: "I am a very committed wife. And I should be committed too - for being married so many times."


6: "I really don't remember much about Cleopatra. There were a lot of other things going on."

7: "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."

8: "Im a survivor - a living example of what people can go through and survive."

9: "I've been through it all, baby, I'm mother courage."

10: "Everything makes me nervous - except making films."

11: "I've only slept with men I've been married to. How many women can make that claim?"

12: "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."

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

14: "Success is a great deodorant."

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

16: "It's not the having, it's the getting."

17: "Marriage is a great institution."

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

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

20: "I don't like my voice. I don't like the way I look. I don't like the way I move. I don't like the way I act. I mean, period. So, you know, I don't like myself."



In 2009, Elizabeth Taylor also joined the Twitter revolution. During a stay in hospital, she tweeted to Kathy Ireland: "Thanks Darling for the beautiful flowers and all the prayers. Now can you just get my puppy past security?"

Amazing why a list of quotes includes a political putdown of a former president; anxious to see if it gets zapped.
