    Thanks for a lovely laugh about my favourite subject! And may I add one more from the divine Elizabeth Taylor “Life, without earrings would be meaningless.” And from her two-time husband, Richard Burton: ‘She only knows one word in Italian; Bulgari.” Burton also said, when speaking of ET: “Her breasts were apocalyptic: they could have toppled empires.” I think that’s the greatest compliment I’ve ever heard of.. beats the living daylights out of ‘You look nice.’
