Marilyn Monroe's books


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.

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.

I don`t want to make money, I just want to be wonderful.

If I`m a star, then the people made me a star.

Dogs never bite me - just humans.

In Hollywood a girl`s virtue is much less important than her hairdo.

No sex is wrong if there is love in it.

Diamonds are a girls best friend.

Help, help!
Help I feel life coming closer,
When all I want to do is die.

The real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing your forehead or smiling into your eyes or just staring into space.

I`m good but not an angel, I do sin but I`m not the devil. I`m just a small girl in a big world trying to find someone to love.

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

It`s better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone.

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.
