Elizabeth Taylor was THE diva of the screen. Her badass, independent legacy will live on forever. Here are 5 Elizabeth Taylor quotes that will bring out the fearless queen in you!
1. "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."
Nobody is perfect, and nobody has the power to tell you what to do. Take the advice of people who claim to have no problems, lightly. Because you never know what people are hiding, and you should never be ashamed if you're hiding something too.
2. "Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together."
This, perhaps is her most famous quote. It's printed on T-shirts, coffee mugs and all sorts of other memorabilia. It's famous because it's applicable. When we get down, sometimes all we need to do is just dress up, chill out and move forward.
3. "I feel very adventurous. There are so many doors to be opened, and I'm not afraid to look behind them."
Elizabeth Taylor was never afraid to speak her mind, or do what she wanted. She was the epitome of a fearless female. Part of this fearlessness was because of her adventurous nature. She never let chances go by, and you shouldn't either!
5. "You just do it. You force yourself to get up. You force yourself to put one foot before the other, and God damn it, you refuse to let it get to you. You fight. You cry. You curse. Then you go about the business of living. That's how I've done it. There's no other way."
This is my favorite quote of hers. It's honest, to the point and shows that life is only as complicated as you make it. As dramatic as Elizabeth was, she created an empire for herself by just continuing on. So when things get hard, remember her words and things just may get a little easier.
