Famous Quotes: 45 Top Marilyn Monroe Quotes

There was something about Marilyn Monroe.She was an iconic sexy fashion icon for over five decades. She was a persona. It went beyond beauty. Marilyn will never get old, because she died so young. Had she lived, Marilyn Monroe would be 86 years old today. It's unclear to many people why, but Marilyn Monroe will be remembered for years to come. Here are my top 45 of Marilyn Monroe's quotes.

1. The body is meant to be seen, not all covered up.

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

3. Always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, Sweetie. So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.

4. No one ever told me I was pretty when I was a little girl. All little girls should be told they are pretty, even if they aren't.

5. I want to grow old without facelifts. I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I have made.

6. To all the girls that think you’re fat because you’re not a size zero, you’re the beautiful one, its society who’s ugly.

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

8. There is nothing positive about being fat. And there is nothing positive about loving yourself. We all need to conform to society's expectations of who we are, because if we don't, who will? Life is more enjoyable when you are thin and pretty. I was never fat a day in my life and I never will.

9. In Hollywood a girl's virtue is much less important than her hair-do. You're judged by how you look, not by what you are. Hollywood's a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss, and fifty cents for your soul. I know, because I turned down the first offer often enough and held out for the fifty cents.


10. Friendship is the bestiest thing that comes to life . Friends will always be there for you don't worry about the fakes worry about the people who had your back from the start and never treated you wrong always remember they are your real friends don't never take them as granted because one day you are going to lose a good friend by the way your action's are when you see a good friend stick to that person .

11. When you have a good friend that really cares for you and tries to stick in there with you, you treat them like nothing. Learn to be a good friend because one day you're gonna look up and say I lost a good friend. Learn how to be respectful to your friends, don't just start arguments with them and don't tell them the reason, always remember your friends will be there quicker than your family. Learn to remember you got great friends, don't forget that and they will always care for you no matter what. Always remember to smile and look up at what you got in life.

12. This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them.

21. We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets.

22.

30. 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.
