"You just do it. You force yourself to get up. You force yourself to put one foot before the other, and God damn it, you refuse to let it get to you. You fight. You cry. You curse. Then you go about the business of living. That's how I've done it. There's no other way." ~ Elizabeth Taylor

I don't know when or why she said it, but this quote says a lot about getting through on some difficult days.

1. I liked Elizabeth Taylor

she was both so very tough and so very vulnerable, and that is sound advice

2. Her advice on this is incredible..and very sound.

What it comes down to is, Sometimes you got to force yourself to live life on life's terms..It is very difficult sometimes, but we try as best we can..
."You force yourself to put one foot before the other..." I think sometimes it is that simple. And often I do not like the idea...but sometimes it is the only idea that is left..

3. The quote doesn't reveal anything about her decision-making abilities.

Those weren't quite as strong as her gumption.
