Marilyn Monroe

Love is something you cant invent, no matter how much you want to.

Marilyn Monroe

My illusions didn't have anything to do with being a fine actress. I knew how third rate I was. I could actually feel my lack of talent, as if it were cheap clothes I was wearing inside. But, my God, how I wanted to learn, to change, to improve!

Marilyn Monroe

As far as I can make out, women's friendships with each other are based on a gush of lies and pretty speeches that mean nothing. You'd think they were all wolves trying to seduce each other the way they flatter and flirt when they're together.

Marilyn Monroe

Always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie?

By Anonym 13 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

I'm a failure as a woman. My men expect so much of me, because of the image they've made of me- and that I've made of myself- as a sex symbol. They expect bells to ring and whistles to whistle, but my anatomy is the same as any other woman's and I can't live up to it.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

Creativity starts with humanity when were being human we feel - joys, sadness, when we're sick, when we're nervous

Marilyn Monroe

Dating a new man is like holding a strawberry milkshake; first the taste, then the pleasure.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

Everybody is always tugging at you. They'd all like a sort of chunk out of you. I don' think they realize it, but it's like 'grrr do this, grr do that' But you do want to stay intact-intact and on two feet.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

Experts on romance say for a happy marriage there has to be more than a passionate love. For a lasting union, they insist, there must be a genuine liking for each other. Which, in my book, is a good definition for friendship.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

By Anonym 14 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

I used to say to myself, 'What the devil have you got to be proud about, Marilyn Monroe?' And I'd answer, 'Everything, everything,' and I'd walk slowly and turn my head slowly as if I were a queen.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

By Anonym 13 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

I have always felt comfortable in blue jeans. I have found it interesting, however, that people also whistle at blue jeans. I have to admit that I like mine to fit. There's nothing I hate worse than baggy blue jeans.

Marilyn Monroe

This industry should behave like a mother whose child has just run out in front of a car. But instead of clasping the child to them, they start punishing the child. Like you don't dare get a cold. How dare you get a cold! I mean, the executives can get colds and stay home forever and phone it in, but how dare you, the actor, get a cold or a virus. You know, no one feels worse than the one who's sick. I sometimes wish, gee, I wish they had to act a comedy with a temperature and a virus infection.

Marilyn Monroe

That's the story of my life; I always get the fuzzy end of the lollipop.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

But chiefly, no lies! No lies about there being a Santa Claus or about the world being full of noble and honorable people all eager to help each other and do good to each other. I'll tell her there are honor and goodness in the world, the same as there are diamonds and radium.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

If I play a stupid girl and ask a stupid question, I've got to follow it through. What am I supposed to do, look intelligent?

By Anonym 15 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

You've got a way with words. You got me smiling even when it hurts. There's no way to measure what your love is worth, I can't believe the way you get through to me. ~ Shania Twain If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything

Marilyn Monroe

I usually eat four or five raw carrots with my meat, and that is all. I must be part rabbit; I never get bored with raw carrots

By Anonym 13 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

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

By Anonym 13 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

As of today, I have absolutely no regrets. I think I am a mature person who can take things in stride. I'm grateful for people in my past. They helped me get to where I am, wherever that is. But now, I am thinking for myself and sitting in on all the business transactions.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

I like actors very much, but to marry one would be like marrying your brother. You look too much alike in the mirror.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

Sometimes I think I was more in control of my life years and years ago, and yet one should make progress; one should learn more every year and become…well, if not happier, then calmer and more able to handle your problems. But I’m not. Sometimes I just seem to make more problems for myself. I do. It makes me feel I haven’t grown up as much as I should have by now.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

I'm for the individual as opposed to the corporation. The way it is the individual is the underdog, and with all the things a corporation has going for them the individual comes out banged on her head. The artist is nothing. It's really tragic.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

Frankly, I've never considered my own figure so exceptional; until quite recently, I seldom gave it any thought at all

By Anonym 13 Sep

In leaving Hollywood and coming to New York, I feel I can be more myself. After all, if I can't be myself, what's the good of being anything at all?

By Anonym 14 Sep

A smart girl leaves before she is left.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

I won't be satisfied until people want to hear me sing without looking at me. Of course, that doesn't mean I want them to stop looking.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

I don't digest things with my mind.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

Frankly, I've never considered my own figure so exceptional; until quite recently, I seldom gave it any thought at all. My biggest single concern used to be getting enough to eat. Now I have to worry about eating too much. I never used to bother with exercises. Now I spend at least 10 minutes each morning working out with small weights. I have evolved my own exercises, for the muscles I wish to keep firm, and I know they are right for me because I can feel them putting the proper muscles into play as I exercise.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

I’ve given pure sex appeal very little thought. If I had to think about it I’m sure it would frighten me.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Marilyn Monroe

Squeezing yourself to ooze out the last ounce of sex allure is terribly hard. I'd like to do roles like Julie in Bury the Dead, Gretchen in Faust and Teresa in Cradle Song.

By Anonym 13 Sep
