Elizabeth Taylor

Now more than ever seems it rich to die,
To cease upon the midnight with no pain,
While thou art pouring forth thy soul abroad
In such an ecstasy!
Keats, "Ode to a Nightingale"

Thank you for contributing to the world. Rest in peace.

I am sure there are other posts that mention her, but these are the entries most concerned with her or her films.
From the media: 25 Things You Didn't Know About Elizabeth Taylor.

And, this tribute article today gets it right:
"In this and in many things, the actress was in a class by herself. Her astonishingly dramatic personal life, characterized by full-throttle romantic love and later recriminations, serious illnesses and tragic deaths, matched the drama of her on-screen roles stride for stride and maybe even bested it. While many actresses specialize in public private lives, it's hard to think of another one quite as astounding in its fearless pursuit of happiness as Taylor's."

But, we should leave it to one who loved her most...In the words of Richard Burton:

"She is a wildly exciting love-mistress, she is shy and witty, she is nobody's fool, she is a brilliant actress, she is beautiful beyond the dreams of pornography, she can be arrogant and willful, she is clement and loving...she tolerates my impossibilities and my drunkenness, she is an ache in the stomach when I am away from her, and she loves me!...And I'll love her till I die."
(Furious Love 255)

Maybe a new joining has taken place. Rest in peace.
