squealie: As a former English major I appreciate the man's poetic phrasing. Probably would have written a great novel or two if he had gotten around to it.

If Richard Burton had written a novel, it probably would've been so powerful and so passionate, that we'd be erecting marble monuments to it.

"At 34 she is an extremely beautiful woman, lavishly endowed by nature with a few flaws in the masterpiece: She has an insipid double chin, her legs are too short and she has a slight potbelly. She has a wonderful bosom, though." - Richard Burton

"I might run from her for a thousand years and she is still my baby child. Our love is so furious that we burn each other out." - Richard Burton

"The most astonishingly self-contained, pulchritudinous, remote, removed, inaccessible woman I had ever seen." - Richard Burton

"Elizabeth has great worries about becoming a cripple because her feet sometimes have no feeling in them. She asked if I would stop loving her if she had to spend the rest of her life in a wheelchair. I told her that I didn`t care if her legs, bum and bosoms fell off and her teeth turned yellow. And she went bald. I love that woman so much sometimes that I cannot believe my luck. She has given me so much." - Richard Burton
