Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh
Laurence Olivier on meeting Vivien early in their careers: Apart from her looks, which were magical, she possessed beautiful poise; her neck looked almost too fragile to support her head and bore it with a sense of surprise, and something of the pride of the master juggler who can make a brilliant maneuver appear almost accidental. She also had something else: an attraction of the most perturbing nature I had ever encounter. It may have been the strangely touching spark of dignity in her that enslaved the ardent legion of her admirers.
Laurence Olivier on early life with Vivien in Hollywood: I never thought it was possible to love anybody so much or quite so completely, or that anybody should be so wonderfully abundant and prodigal to me in everything I've wanted most. As we have settled down and become firmer in our minds, and more peaceful in our hearts, our life together has become so unbelievably beautiful. We have been through a terribly difficult two years...but I really believe that our love will justify itself in the end.
Leo and Sofya Tolstoy
William Shirer: "Day after day, year after year, they put down their innermost and increasingly bitter thoughts about the other. And for years they left what they wrote for the other to read -- it was a perverse form of communication between them."
William Shirer: "... leading to a marital life of utter misery ultimately for both partners, and finally, after forty-eight years, to his sad end when, in desperation, he ran away from it."
Liam Neeson and Natasha Richardson
Natasha: "We have a joke that I see the glass half full and he sees it half empty. He's more laid back, happy to see what happens, whereas I'm a doer and I plan ahead. The differences sometimes get in the way but they can be the very things that feed a marriage too."
Liam: "... sitting down to eat in our house, talking about the day, is very important."
Liam about his motorcycle accident in 2000: "His wife Natasha was, he says, "an angel during my recovery. She was there every minute holding my hand, which was a wonderful inspiration. She's a good girl. Seeing her gave me a little extra strength each day."
Liam: "She [Natasha] pushed all the right buttons. Certain people push one or tow. But she pushed buttons I didn't even know I had."
A loving heart is the beginning of all knowledge.
