Quotes about Marilyn Monroe
I am good, but not an angel. I do sin, but I am not the devil. I am just a small girl in a big world trying to find someone to love.
Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.
I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I'm out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.
Success makes so many people hate you. I wish it wasn't that way. It would be wonderful to enjoy success without seeing envy in the eyes of those around you.

I remember when I was in high school I didn't have a new dress for each special occasion. The girls would bring the fact to my attention, not always too delicately.

A smart girl leaves before she is left.
Sometimes I feel my whole life has been one big rejection.
Beauty and femininity are ageless and can't be contrived, and glamour, although the manufacturers won't like this, cannot be manufactured. Not real glamour; it's based on femininity.
If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything.
We should all start to live before we get too old.
Dogs never bite me - just humans.
Sometimes I've been to a party where no one spoke to me for a whole evening. The men, frightened by their wives or sweeties, would give me a wide berth. And the ladies would gang up in a corner to discuss my dangerous character.
A woman knows by intuition, or instinct, what is best for herself.
The nicest thing for me is sleep, then at least I can dream.
One of the best things that ever happened to me is that I'm a woman. That is the way all females should feel.
A career is wonderful, but you can't curl up with it on a cold night.
I was honoured when they asked me to appear at the president's birthday rally in Madison Square Garden. There was like a hush over the whole place when I came on to sing 'Happy Birthday,' like if I had been wearing a slip, I would have thought it was showing or something. I thought, 'Oh, my gosh, what if no sound comes out!'
The truth is, I've never fooled anyone. I've let men sometimes fool themselves.
Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul.
