Luvsbway Posted June 29, 2015 Report Share Posted June 29, 2015 I've found that Tumbler and Instagram are a treasurer trove of some great and really poignant quotes about Lucy and from Lucy. Many I have never come across before. I thought rounding them up here would be a good idea. "It was just that we couldn't make our marriage work out because we'd grown so different over the years. But we learned how to solve that when we separated-and today, we have a very special place for each other in our hearts."-Lucy, in an interview "My sister didn't say it, but we knew she never stopped loving Desi. Wherever she stayed, she placed a framed picture of him in sight. She would also force Gary to run home videos of her, Desi, and the children." -Fred Ball "I always loved the way they look at each other. Even when they were getting old, every time the whole family got together and when Mom saw Dad, she got that light in her eyes and had a big smile on her face." - Lucie Arnaz "When he [Desi] died, my mother lost a piece of herself. In fact, she died of a broken heart. It physically broke.” - Lucie Arnaz "Desi was terribly emotional about her. He really was crazy about her. You could feel how they felt." - William Asher [On Lucy] She cared about her appearance. She was well groomed. But she never had a drop of plastic surgery her whole life. She just got bigger sunglasses and higher collars." - Lucie Arnaz "I fell in love with those big beautiful blue eyes when I met her while filming the last of Dance, Girl, Dance. When she looked at me intensely, I forgot my name, my sadness, my home. It was unnatural how I could fall in love so fast." - Desi Arnaz You start interviewing Ms Lucille Ball, and then Mr Desi Arnaz enters and Ms Ball leaves. It's not that she leaves in person, she merely leaves in spirit. Ms Ball looked at Mr Arnaz as if he were something that floated down from above on a cloud." - Kyle Crichton “Lucy loved Desi till the day she died. He was the father of her kids. Even after she married Gary, she’d still run these lovely home movies of her and Desi and the kids when they were little. Everybody was in them, smiling by the pool, running up real fast, waving hello, Lucy walking knock-kneed and doing her Lucy faces. She’d sit there giving commentaries. She loved watching those movies.”- Jack Carter “What do you say about a marriage that has ended? All those hopes and dreams, the children, the years, the fights and the love? I can’t put it into words and neither can Desi. We still loved each other desperately.” - Lucy. "Lucy and I already had that once in a lifetime love. It is time for us to become friends. We were both so damaged from this big romance that lasted two decades, but we cannot just erase each other away. I think of her everyday, even her voice echoes in my conscience. You can't just erase your soul mate away." - Desi Arnaz 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
