TRACI LORDS QUOTES

American actress, singer, & former adult film star (1968- )

You said you're lonely
You said you're blue
You lost your lover
Let me console you
If you surrender
You'll feel no pain
Cause I'm the master
Of this game

For me, porn was about my pain in my life as a child. And I was completely acting out. I was a wild kid. I was angry at the world. And I was very rebellious, and I wanted to show everybody.

If you're sexy, everybody will love you. That's what I wanted -- for everybody to love me.

You consume me
I don't even fight
Oh, I feel intoxicated...
But beware I bite.

I hate the phrase "former porn queen." That part of my life was a long time ago. Think of something else to call me.

You know, I don't necessarily have any advice. All I can say to young girls, is that it's a really difficult time that we're living in. There are a lot of single mothers that are not there all the time. Because they're working, they're trying to support their families. And I think that a twelve or thirteen year old girl, that's when you're really making decisions, and you need your guidance. It's sort of a double edged sword, isn't it? And I'd say, stay in school. I know that sounds cliché, but it's true. I wish I had more people around me when I was young. And saying no, stay away from the fire. Go this way.

I have so many other interests: Writing, acting, directing, real life, I need little pieces of it all to satisfy me. The thirst is deep and I am complicated.

My happiest childhood memories are of times in our backyard. My mother had an old clothesline that hung out in front. It seemed like it stretched a mile long, and I loved sitting in the sun while she hung clothes.

I feel sublime
Then I lose ground
Tripping on words
That have no sound of love

I'm successful in spite of my past, not because of it!

I have a lot of -- I struggle with a lot of shame over my past. There have been times when I've been incredibly embarrassed about the things that happened to me. I don't think that there is one human being in this world that would wish, you know, to be injured as a kid the way -- in ways that I was.

I would want to be a very present mother. You know, something that I never had.

I am climbing to the top
Of the tallest darkest tree
I need to know
Where heaven stops
What lies
Beyond the dream
