Marilyn's Words of Wisdom


I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am 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.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

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.

Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.

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

Its better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you're not.

--Marilyn Monroe
1 June 1926 - 5 August 1962

  1. Just had to comment on this post as well because you posted my favorite quote-- "Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."
    It's kind of my life mantra :P And I've recently become a Marilyn fan, officially (I love her in How to Marry a Millionaire)!
