Marilyn Monroe quotes

Marilyn Monroe
(born Norma Jeane Mortenson; June 1, 1926 – August 5,1962)

"A wise girl knows her limits,
a smart girl knows that she has none."

**

"No one ever told me I was pretty
when I was a little girl.
All little girls should be told they are pretty,
even if they aren’t."

**

"If you’re gonna be two-faced
at least make one of them pretty."

**

"We should all start to live
before we get too old.
Fear is stupid.
So are regrets."

**

"She was a girl who knew how to be happy
even when she was sad.
And that’s important—you know"

**

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. When it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, then I’m already better than them anyways."



Hollywood is a place
where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss
and fifty cents for your soul."



If I’d observed all the rules,
I’d never have got anywhere.

**

I am invariably late for appointments – sometimes as much as two hours. I’ve tried to change my ways but the things that make me late are too strong, and too pleasing.

There was my name up in lights. I said, 'God, somebody’s made a mistake.' But there it was, in lights. And I sat there and said, 'Remember, you’re not a star.' Yet there it was up in lights.

**

A sex symbol becomes a thing.
I just hate to be a thing.

**

I’ve been on a calendar,
but I’ve never been on time.

**

Husbands are chiefly good as lovers
when they are betraying their wives.

**

I don’t mind making jokes,
but I don’t want to look like one.

**

The body is meant to be seen,
not all covered up.

**

I have feelings too.
I am still human.
All I want is to be loved,
for myself and for my talent.



Being a sex symbol is a heavy load to carry,
especially when one is tired,
hurt and bewildered.

**

A career is wonderful,
but you can’t curl up with it on a cold night.

**

It’s often just enough to be with someone. I don’t need to touch them. Not even talk. A feeling passes between you both. You’re not alone.

**

What do I wear in bed?
Why?
Chanel No. 5, of course.

**

I guess I have always been deeply terrified to really be someone’s wife since I know from life one cannot love another, ever, really.

**

Dogs never bite me.
Just humans.

**

I am involved in a freedom ride protesting the loss of the minority rights belonging to the few remaining earthbound stars. All we demanded was our right to twinkle.

**

I’m very definitely a woman
and I enjoy it.



Sex is a part of nature.
I go along with nature.

**

I don’t mind living in a man’s world
as long as I can be a woman in it.

**

The thing I want more than anything else?
I want to have children.
I used to feel for every child I had,
I would adopt another.

**

I don’t want to make money,
I just want to be wonderful.

**

Men are so willing to respect anything that bores them.

**

I knew I belonged to the public and to the world, not because I was talented or even beautiful, but because I had never belonged to anything or anyone else.

**

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.

**

If I’m a star,
then the people made me a star.

**

I have too many fantasies to be a housewife.
I guess I am a fantasy.

**

Fame will go by and, so long, I’ve had you, fame. If it goes by, I’ve always known it was fickle. So at least it’s something I experience, but that’s not where I live.

**

It’s all make believe,
isn’t it?

**

First, I’m trying to prove to myself that I’m a person. Then maybe I’ll convince myself that I’m an actress.

**

I’ve never dropped anyone I believed in.

**

I restore myself when I’m alone.



She passed away August 5, 1962.
