Celebrity Inspiration: Marilyn Monroe


“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.” 

 “Ever notice how 'What the hell' is always the right answer?”


 “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 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.”


 “All little girls should be told they are pretty, even if they aren't.”


 “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”

 “I don't want to make money, I just want to be wonderful.”


"Keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.”

"I knew I belonged to the public and to the world, not because I was talented or even beautiful, but because I had never belonged to anything or anyone else."

“Beneath the makeup and behind the smile I am just a girl who wishes for the world.”
