quotes<br />"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." — Marilyn Monroe<br />"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 their right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust noone but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." — Marilyn Monroe<br />"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring." — Marilyn Monroe<br />"A wise girl kisses but doesn't love, listens but doesn't believe, and leaves before she is left." — Marilyn Monroe<br />"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." — Marilyn Monroe<br />"It's better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone." — Marilyn Monroe<br />"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." — Marilyn Monroe<br />"Beneath the makeup and behind the smile I am just a girl who wishes for the world." — Marilyn Monroe<br />"If you're gonna be two-faced at least make one of them pretty." — Marilyn Monroe<br />
quotes<br />"Who said nights were for sleep?" — Marilyn Monroe<br />"It's not true that I had nothing on. I had the radio on." — Marilyn Monroe<br />"I've never fooled anyone. I've let people fool themselves. They didn't bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn't argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn't." — Marilyn Monroe<br />"The nicest thing for me is sleep, then at least I can dream." — Marilyn Monroe<br />"She was a girl who knew how to be happy even when she was sad. And that’s important—you know " — Marilyn Monroe<br />"I want to grow old without facelifts. I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I have made." — Marilyn Monroe<br />"Well behaved women rarely make history." — Marilyn Monroe<br />"Dogs never bite me. Just humans." — Marilyn Monroe<br />"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." — Marilyn Monroe<br />"Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul. I know, because I turned down the first offer often enough and held out for the fifty cents." — Marilyn Monroe<br />"I'm pretty, but I'm not beautiful. I sin, but I'm not the devil. I'm good, but I'm not an angel." — Marilyn Monroe<br />""I'am going to die young because I can't picture myself old." — Marilyn Monroe<br />http://www.goodreads.com/author/quotes/82952.Marilyn_Monroe<br />
