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.
"I'm very definitely a woman and I enjoy it."
"At twelve I looked like a girl of seventeen. My body was developed and shapely. But no one knew this but me. I still wore the blue dress and the blouse the orphanage provided. They made me look like an overgrown lummox."
"I don't mind living in a man's world as long as I can be a woman in it."
"I’m selfish, impatient, and 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 don’t deserve me at my best."
"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so you can appreciate them when they’re right.You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself. And sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
