The Shadow of Your Smile….

March 25, 2011

Elisheba Rachel 1959-2011

Anne Revere (Mrs. Brown): What’s the meaning of goodness if there isn’t a little badness to overcome?

Elizabeth Taylor (Velvet Brown): I want it all quickly ’cause I don’t want God to stop and think and wonder if I’m getting more than my share.

Anne Revere (Mrs. Brown):That’ll be a dispute to the end of time, Mr. Brown: whether it’s better to do the right thing for the wrong reason or the wrong thing for the right reason.

Mickey Rooney (Mi Taylor): Some day you’ll learn that greatness is only the seizing of opportunity – clutching with your bare hands ’til the knuckles show white.

  1. Just a note – it’s 1939-2011, not 1959


  2. It is actually 1932-2011 for the Christian Elizabeth Taylor; when she converted to Judaism in 1959, given a new name, she was “reborn”….. it is a subtlety.
