Norma Jean Mortenson, known to most as Marilyn Monroe, was born today in 1926 in Los Angeles. The blond bombshell continues to be an iconic image even after her death. In honor of the screen legend, here are a few famous Monroe quotes:
“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.”
“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.”
“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
“The real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing your forehead or smiling into your eyes or just staring into space.”
“It’s all make believe, isn’t it?”
