Inspirational Quote of the Day: One by Movie Star Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor converted to Judaism. She also became a “gay icon” who supported LGBT causes. Her seven husbands can probably attest to how difficult she was to get along with.


Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, DBE (February 27, 1932 – March 23, 2011) was a British-American actress, businesswoman, and humanitarian. She began her career as a child actress in the early 1940s, and was one of the most popular stars of classical Hollywood cinema in the 1950s. She continued her career successfully into the 1960s, and remained a well known public figure for the rest of her life. In 1999, the American Film Institute named her the seventh-greatest female screen legend.

Born in London to wealthy, socially prominent American parents, Taylor moved with her family to Los Angeles in 1939, and she soon was given a film contract by Universal Pictures. She made her screen debut in a minor role in There’s One Born Every Minute (1942), but Universal terminated her contract after a year. Taylor was then signed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and had her breakthrough role in National Velvet (1944), becoming one of the studio’s most popular teenaged stars. She made the transition to adult roles in the early 1950s, when she starred in the comedy Father of the Bride (1950) and received critical acclaim for her performance in the drama A Place in the Sun (1951).

  1. With that quote she must have been suffering severe depression – or maybe alcoholism, drug abuse etc. I find getting out of bed in the morning easy. Maybe living alone has something to do with it. Those that stay in bed refusing to get up invariably have a sucker around to look after them.

  2. She never asked herself why do my marriages keep ending in divorce?

    Is it possible she didn’t choose the right men for her; although, they might have been suitable for other women, maybe not? Maybe, both she and her husbands shouldn’t have gotten married to anyone until after spending some time on the couch. I believe most of her husbands had been married before. That’s what I would have prescribed.

    Often, women with poor relationships with their fathers choose men who resemble them in some way and continue to make the same mistakes unknowingly falling for the same type they divorced. Some happen to have great fathers and good relationships, marry suitable men and have a happy marriage. I’m not covering for her stupidity.

    Richard Burton was known to be a nasty man. Then she married him again. Eddie Fisher was a rat sneaking around behind his wife Debbie Reynold’s back. So, that says a lot about Dame Elizabeth. The others I know little about.

    Psychologists (I know they are taboo here) claim those traits we hate in others, really get our goat, are those we possess and don’t like in ourselves.
