“You are who you are. All you can do in this world is help others to be who they are and better themselves and those around them.

“Give. Remember always to give. That is the thing that will make you grow.”

“That is the thing that will give back to you all the rewards that there are.”

“Don’t do it for yourself, because then it becomes selfish.”

“Because then it becomes about yourself … which is wrong.”

“Giving is to give to God. Helping is to help others.”

“Every breath you take today should be with someone else in mind. I love you.”

Best known for her legendary acting career, elegant jewelry and perfume lines, and her passionate philanthropic AIDS work, Liz Taylor will be forever remembered as one of the greatest and most glamorous actresses of Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Grammy-winning rock star Elton John mourned the death of Taylor saying, “We have just lost a Hollywood giant. More importantly, we have lost an incredible human being.”

Close friends, John and Taylor were longtime partners in AIDS activism. May she rest in peace, and may her family and friends know that she was loved.
