Throughout her 79 years, Elizabeth Taylor let some teachable and always honest remarks slip, not the least of which being that if someone offers a million dollars for a movie role, one would be pretty dumb to turn it down.
As news of her passing has spread, Twitter users began sharing some of her more memorable statements, ranging from wise advice to coy witticisms.
"Big girls need big diamonds," Twitter user oXxSamanthaxXo wrote along with the hope that Taylor will rest in peace, while another user invoked her philanthropic spirit: "Give. Remember to always give. This is the thing that will make you grow."
And yet another quote that kept popping up left and right: "I feel very adventurous. There are so many doors to be opened, and I'm not afraid to look behind them," a remark KenzieSchwartz also tweeted.
The tributes poured in as fast as the memorial quotes did, with AshleyKaila tweeting, "You did so much not only for Hollywood but the AIDs community and beyond.Your imprint on this world will b long lastin," and Ceuribet admitting, "When I was in primary school in the 70s I used to have a notebook with Elizabeth Taylor on the cover. I thought she was The Queen of UK."
Even women's intimates brand Victoria's Secret weighed in: "She oozed glamour + was one of the original & sexiest bombshells. RIP Elizabeth Taylor...you will be missed!"
