“I fell in love with her at once. She was like a mirage of beauty of the ages, irresistible, like a pull of gravity. She has everything I want in a woman.”
- Richard Burton

"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."
- Elizabeth Taylor
“There is an emptiness in my life that only Elizabeth can make less empty. For 13 years we were together constantly, compulsively. How can you end such a wild and perfect relationship? You can’t. A love affair like ours is never ended – only temporarily abandoned.” Richard Burton

“I love her, not for her breasts, her buttocks, or her knees but for her mind. It is inscrutable. She is like a poem.” - Richard Burton on Elizabeth Taylor
"Burton and Taylor in London", 1967
i love the passion, the honesty, the lies, the love letters, the way they looked at each other, the destruction, the drama, the endurance, the interviews, the traveling, the insane gifts, but what i like most of all is that they both knew they’d be together again.
