    Default Some wise and notable quotes by Marilyn Monroe

    While searching for a quote of a different source, I ran across some quotes by Marilyn Monroe and was delighted to see some of her insight and wisdom.
    Hope you see some of what I see from a great American Icon .

    * Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and itís better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.

    *A wise girl kisses but doesnít love, listens but doesnít believe, and leaves before she is left.


    *I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when theyíre right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

    *I donít mind living in a manís world as long as I can be a woman in it.

    *A girl knows her limits but a wise one knows she has none.

    *If youíre gonna be two-faced at least make one of them pretty.

    *To all the girls that think theyíre ugly because youíre not a size zero, youíre the beautiful one. Itís society whoís ugly.

    *Itís better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone.

    *Your clothes should be tight enough to show youíre a woman, but loose enough to show youíre a lady.

    *Before marriage, a girl has to make love to a man to hold him. After marriage, she has to hold him to make love to him.


    *Iíve been on a calendar, but never on time.

    *Hollywood is a place where theyíll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul.

    *I am good, but not an angel. I do sin, but I am not the devil.

    *I read poetry to save time.

    I love that one

    And this one:

    * ďI donít forgive people because Iím weak, I forgive them because I am strong enough to know people make mistakes.Ē

    * ďI'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 don't deserve me at my best.Ē

    Oh, umm ....... could be one of Donald Trumpsí as well.


    * ďI donít mind making jokes, but I donít want to look like one.Ē

    if I may add to the Marylin Monroe quotes:

    MM was anything but dumb- she played dumb but was anything but-

    yrs. ago I went to an exhibition in Basel, Switzerland (near where I live) donated by a wealthy American who managed to buy up most of MM's paraphernalia;

    her quotes according this exhibition were:

    "I always knew I was destined for the general public and the world because I never once belonged to anything or anyone" (truly sad)

    "It's really difficult to keep up the image of a sex symbol when you're feeling tired, misused and completely bewildered"

    be well all-

    Thanks Rawhide/ thats a consistent thread of thought that has been out there for many years. Have you heard Douglass Caddy who was a watergate attorney, speak about the JFK assassination? you can hear on the Dark Journalist. Caddy says the same regarding JFK. So it may make sense

    @Rawhide

    there's still a lot of mystery surrounding MM's death; according to my gleaned sources she shared a a lot of pillow talk between JFK and RFK; so what was she aware of that she maybe planed to go public with?- according to my gleaned sources a helluva lot- therefore she had to be eliminated-

    be well-

    Larry
