Eternity is not for everyone… See the previous post for Marilyn clicking here.

“A wise girl kisses but doesn’t love, listens but doesn’t believe, and leaves before she is left.”

“It’s not true I had nothing on, I had the radio on.”

“A woman can’t be alone. She needs a man. A man and a woman support and strengthen each other. She just can’t do it by herself.”

“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.”

“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.”

“I always felt insecure and in the way, but most of all I felt scared. I guess I wanted love more than anything else in the world.”

“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.”

“Hollywood is a place where they’ll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul.”

“I am good, but not an angel. I do sin, but I am not the devil. I am pretty, but not beautiful. I have friends, but I am not the peacemaker. I am just a small girl in a big world trying to find someone to love.”

“I learned to walk as a baby and I haven’t had a lesson since.”

“It takes a smart brunette to play a dumb blonde.”

“Fame will go by and, so long, I’ve had you, Fame. If it goes by, I’ve always known it was fickle.”

“Imperfection is beauty. Madness is genius and it is better to be absolutely ridiculous then absolutly boring.”

“I used to think as I looked at the Hollywood night, ‘there must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of becoming a movie star. But I’m not going to worry about them. I’m dreaming the hardest.'”

“I love to do the things the censors won’t pass.”

“Husbands are chiefly good lovers when they are betraying their wives.”

“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.”

“A career is born in public, talent in privacy.”

“Some people have been unkind. If I say I want to grow as an actress, they look at my figure. If I say I want to develop, to learn my craft, they laugh. Somehow they don’t expect me to be serious about my work.”

“It stirs up envy, fame does. People…feel fame gives them some kind of privilege to walk up to you and say anything to you–and it won’t hurt your feelings–like it’s happening to your clothing.”

“The trouble with censors is that they worry if a girl has cleavage. They ought to worry if she hasn’t any.”

“It’s better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone.”

“The nicest thing for me is sleep, then at least i can dream”

“Someone said to me, ‘If fifty percent of the experts in Hollywood said you had no talent and should give up, what would you do?’ My answer was then and still is, ‘If a hundred percent told me that, all one hundred percent would be wrong.'”

“If you can make a girl laugh – you can make her do anything.”

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

“Everyone’s just laughing at me. I hate it. Big breasts, big ass, big deal, Can’t I be anything else ? Gee, how long can you be sexy?”

“Men who think that a woman’s past love affairs lessen her love for them are usually stupid and weak. A woman can bring a new love to each man she loves, providing there are not too many.”

“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.”

“A career is wonderful, but you can’t curl up with it on a cold night.”

“I don’t forgive people because I’m weak, I forgive them because I am strong enough to know people make mistakes.”

“People had a habit of looking at me as if I were some kind of mirror instead of a person. They didn’t see me, they saw their own lewd thoughts, then they white-masked themselves by calling me the lewd one.”

“Unfortunately, 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.”
