Celebrity Couple breakups and makeups : Elizabeth Taylor married 8 times

Elizabeth Taylor was a woman of abundance. She was endowed with outsized beauty, outsized fame and outsized appetites.

“I feel very adventurous,” she was once quoted as saying. “There are so many doors to be opened, and I’m not afraid to look behind them.”

Though a brilliant actress, her remarkable talent was frequently outshone by her offscreen antics. “My troubles all started because I have a woman’s body and a child’s emotions,” she once said.

Notable quotes from Elizabeth Taylor regarding love and marriage:

I am a very committed wife. And I should be committed too – for being married so many times.

I don’t pretend to be an ordinary housewife.

I feel very adventurous. There are so many doors to be opened, and I’m not afraid to look behind them.

I really don’t remember much about Cleopatra. There were a lot of other things going on.

I suppose when they reach a certain age some men are afraid to grow up. It seems the older the men get, the younger their new wives get.

I’m a survivor – a living example of what people can go through and survive.

I’ve always admitted that I’m ruled by my passions.

I’ve been through it all, baby, I’m mother courage.

It’s not the having, it’s the getting.

Marriage is a great institution.

Some of my best leading men have been dogs and horses.

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.

You find out who your real friends are when you’re involved in a scandal.

And one last quote:

It is strange that the years teach us patience; that the shorter our time, the greater our capacity for waiting
