Lana Turner Quotes

Humor has been the balm of my life, but it’s been reserved for those close to me, not part of the public Lana.
Lana Turner

The thing about happiness is that it doesn’t help you to grow; only unhappiness does that. So I’m grateful that my bed of roses was made up equally of blossoms and thorns. I’ve had a privileged, creative, exciting life, and I think that the parts that were less joyous were preparing me, testing me, strengthening me.
Lana Turner

Trash is something you get rid of – or disease. I’m not something you get rid of.

The truth is, sex doesn’t mean that much to me now. It never did, really. It was romance I wanted, kisses and candlelight, that sort of thing. I never did dig sex very much.
Lana Turner

All those years that my image on the screen was sex goddess – well that makes me laugh. Sex was never important to me. I’m sorry if that disappoints you, but it’s true. Romance, yes. Romance was very important. But I never liked being rushed into bed, and I never allowed it. I’d put it off as long as I could and I gave in only when I was in love, or thought I was. It was always the courtship, the cuddling, and the closeness that I cared about, never the act of sex itself-with some exceptions of course. I’m not masquerading as a prude , but I’ve always been portrayed as a sexy woman, and that’s wrong. Sensuous, yes. When I’m involved with someone I care for deeply, I can feel sensual. But that’s a private matter.
Lana Turner

I’ve always loved a challenge.
Lana Turner

How long I had been asleep I don’t know, but suddenly I was sitting up straight in the darkness. Before me was a vision so intense that it seemed to be alive. I saw a huge medallion of shining gold, and on it was embossed the face of God, a shimmering countenance, comforting, benign. A voice said, Your father is dead. I was filled with awe but also with a strange sense of peace as I closed my eyes and went back to sleep.
On death of her father, Lana Turner

When I awoke in the morning, my mother and Julia Hislop were whispering in a corner. They didn’t have to tell me why. I already knew that my father was dead. And when the feeling of peace wore off, the surprise at having known intensified my sense of loss and sorrow. Although I was only nine, I could imagine what death meant. I knew he was gone forever.
On death of her father, Lana Turner

It was all beauty and it was all talent, and if you had it they protected you.
