Still living her memoirs: Elizabeth Taylor, Saying No

Elizabeth Taylor lived large, in the moment. Late in life, after a variety of health problems, she chose not to undergo a back operation, saying she had already had a half-dozen and wasn't up to another one.

When she received yet another offer, late in life, to write her memoirs, she refused, saying, "Hell no, I'm still living my memoirs."

Advice: Live your life your way, and make your decisions accordingly.

Read about another person who said No to back surgery. Thanks to Mel Gussow for his source article in the New York Times of March 24.
