On Lucille Ball: I loved her very much and, in my own and perhaps peculiar way, I will always love her. ”

On Lucille Ball. She’s not someone I am likely to forget. I love her and will continue loving her till the day I die.

On meeting Lucille Ball. I fell in love with those big beautiful blue eyes when I met her. It was unnatural how I could fall in love so fast

Lucy had a quality which was rare; you can count the women who have had it on the fingers of one hand. While doing the wild antics of a clown, disheveled, rain-soaked, disregarding how she looked even with mud all over her, could make you laugh, and yet at the same time make you want to go to bed with her.
