Marilyn Monroe’s Quotations !

Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe (June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) was an American actress, model, and singer, who became a major sex symbol, starring in a number of commercially successful motion pictures during the 1950s and early 1960s. Presenting some Quotations : Being Poet
  • It's all make believe, isn't it?
  • I restore myself when I'm alone.
  • Dogs never bite me. Just humans.
  • I've never dropped anyone I believed in.
  • I'm very definitely a woman and I enjoy it.
  • If I'm a star, then the people made me a star.
  • Sex is a part of nature. I go along with nature.
  • It's not true I had nothing on, I had the radio on.
  • The body is meant to be seen, not all covered up.
  • I've been on a calendar, but I've never been on time.
  • What do I wear in bed? Why, Chanel No. 5, of course.
  • Men are so willing to respect anything that bores them.
  • A sex symbol becomes a thing. I just hate to be a thing.
  • I don't want to make money, I just want to be wonderful.
  • If I'd observed all the rules, I'd never have got anywhere.
  • I don't mind making jokes, but I don't want to look like one.
  • A career is wonderful, but you can't curl up with it on a cold night.
  • I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot.
  • Dreaming about being an actress, is more exciting then being one.
  • It's better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone - so far.
  • I don't mind living in a man's world as long as I can be a woman in it.
  • I have too many fantasies to be a housewife. I guess I am a fantasy.
  • Husbands are chiefly good as lovers when they are betraying their wives.
  • An actress is not a machine, but they treat you like a machine. A money machine.
  • I have feelings too. I am still human. All I want is to be loved, for myself and for my talent.
  • Being a sex symbol is a heavy load to carry, especially when one is tired, hurt and bewildered.
  • Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for yoursoul.
  • The trouble with censors is that they worry if a girl has cleavage. They ought to worry if she hasn't any.
  • First, I'm trying to prove to myself that I'm a person. Then maybe I'll convince myself that I'm an actress.
  • Before marriage, a girl has to make love to a man to hold him. After marriage, she has to hold him to make love to him.
  • To put it bluntly, I seem to have a whole superstructure with no foundation. But I'm working on the foundation.
  • No one ever told me I was pretty when I was a little girl. All little girls should be told they're pretty, even if they aren't.
  • The thing I want more than anything else? I want to have children. I used to feel for every child I had, I would adopt another.
  • I guess I have always been deeply terrified to really be someone's wife since I know from life one cannot love another, ever, really.
  • It's often just enough to be with someone. I don't need to touch them. Not even talk. A feeling passes between you both. You're not alone.
  • My work is the only ground I've ever had to stand on. I seem to have a whole superstructure with no foundation but I'm working on the foundation.
  • 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.
  • Fame will go by and, so long, I've had you, fame. If it goes by, I've always known it was fickle. So at least it's something I experience, but that's not where I live.
  • I am involved in a freedom ride protesting the loss of the minority rights belonging to the few remaining earthbound stars. All we demanded was our right to twinkle.
  • I am invariably late for appointments - sometimes as much as two hours. I've tried to change my ways but the things that make me late are too strong, and too pleasing.
  • There was my name up in lights. I said, 'God, somebody's made a mistake.' But there it was, in lights. And I sat there and said, 'Remember, you're not a star.' Yet there it was up in lights.
