It's hard to believe this month is the 50th anniversary of the death of Marilyn Monroe. She has maintained our curiosity and is arguably one of the most fascinating women of the 20th century. What was it about her that created such allure? Perhaps these quotes from her can give us insight into her life.
"Dreaming about being an actress, is more exciting than being one."
"First, I'm trying to prove to myself that I'm a person. Then maybe I'll convince myself that I'm an actress."
"A career is wonderful, but you can't curl up with it on a cold night."
"In Hollywood a girl's virtue is much less important than her hairdo. You're judged by how you look, not by what you are. Hollywood's a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for kiss, and fifty cents for your soul."
