Marilyn Monroe's books

 TimeFavorites

I`m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I`m 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.

A wise girl kisses but doesn`t love, listens but doesn`t believe, and leaves before she is left.

I don`t mind making jokes, but I don`t want to look like one.

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

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

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.

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.

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

A career is wonderful, but you can`t curl up with a career on a cold night.

If I`d observed all the rules I`d never have got anywhere.

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

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

Diamonds are a girls best friend.

No sex is wrong if there is love in it.

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