Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton:
→ “Famed as we are, rich as we are, courted and insulted as we are, overpaid as we are, centre of a great deal of attention as we are, [we] are not bored or blasé. We are not envious. We are merely lucky.
I have been inordinately lucky all my life but the greatest luck of all has been Elizabeth. She has turned me into a moral man but not a prig, she is a wildly exciting lover-mistress, she is shy and witty, she is nobody’s fool, she is a brilliant actress, she is beautiful beyond the dreams of pornography, she can be arrogant and wilful, she is clement and loving, Dulcis Imperatrix, she is Sunday’s child, she can tolerate my impossibilities and my drunkenness, she is an ache in the stomach when I am away from her, and she loves me!”

“I knew she would be devastated, shattered, but I didn’t expect her to become completely hysterical. I could not get her to stop crying. She was completely out of control. I realized then how deeply she was tied to this man, how vital a role he had played in her life. And I realized I could never have that special place in her heart she keeps for Burton.” Victor Luna on Elizabeth’s reaction to Richard’s death

“We tried to stay away from each other. We were too aware of the pain we were causing others to stay together. But it is a hard thing to do, run away from your fate. When you are in love and lust like that, you just grab it with both hands and ride out the storm.” Elizabeth Taylor

Imagine having Richard Burton’s voice in your ear while you are making love…It drowned out the troubles, the sorrows, everything just melted away…I was the happy recipient of his reputation as a man who knew how to please a woman. Being unfaithful to Richard was as impossible as not being in love with him.

“I cannot imagine life without him. I love him. I adore him. Our love is so deep that I don’t give a goddamn what people think or say about us.” - Elizabeth Taylor
