I don’t mind living in a man’s world as long as I can be a woman in it.
Marilyn Monroe Quotes

Great Marilyn Monroe Quotes…

“I’m very definitely a woman and I enjoy it.”
Marilyn Monroe 

“I am not interested in money. I just want to be wonderful.”
Marilyn Monroe 

I don’t mind being burdened with being glamorous and sexual. Beauty and femininity are ageless and can’t be contrived, and glamour, although themanufacturers won’t like this, cannot be manufactured. Not real glamour; it’s based on femininity. We are all born sexual creatures, thank God, but it’s a pity so many people despise and crush this natural gift. Art, real art, comes from it, everything.
Marilyn Monroe Quotes 

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

Quotes about Hollywood…

“I’ve often stood silent at a party for hours listening to my movie idols turn into dull and little people.”
Marilyn Monroe 

“In Hollywood a girl’s virtue is much less important than her hairdo. 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 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.”
Marilyn Monroe Quotes 

Quotes About Fame

“There was my name up in lights. I said, ‘God, somebody’s made a mistake.’ But there it was, in lights. And I sat there and said, ‘Remember, you’re not a star.’ Yet there it was up in lights.”

“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.”
Marilyn Monroe 

“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.”
Marilyn Monroe Quotes 

“People respect you because they feel you’ve survived hard times and endured, and although you’ve become famous, you haven’t become phony.”
Marilyn Monroe 

Quotes About Acting

“Looking back, I guess I used to play-act all the time. For one thing, it meant I could live in a more interesting world than the one around me.”
Marilyn Monroe 

“My illusions didn’t have anything to do with being a fine actress. I knew how third rate I was. I could actually feel my lack of talent, as if it were cheap clothes I was wearing inside. But, my God, how I wanted to learn, to change, to improve!”
Marilyn Monroe Quotes 

“I knew I belonged to the public and to the world, not because I was talented or even beautiful, but because I had never belonged to anything or anyone else.”
Marilyn Monroe

Marilyn Quotes Life

“I restore myself when I’m alone.”

Marilyn Monroe 

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 their 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.
Marilyn Monroe 

Success makes so many people hate you. I wish it wasn’t that way. It would be wonderful to enjoy success without seeing envy in the eyes of those around you
Marilyn Monroe 

Marilyn’s Movie Quotes

You think every girl’s a dope. You think a girl goes to a party and there’s some guy in a fancy striped vest strutting around giving you that I’m-so-handsome-you-can’t-resist-me look. From this she’s supposed to fall flat on her face. Well, she doesn’t fall on her face. But there’s another guy in the room, over in the corner. Maybe he’s nervous and shy and perspiring a little. First, you look past him. But then you sense that he’s gentle and kind and worried. That he’ll be tender with you, nice and sweet. That’s what’s really exciting.
The Seven Year Itch

It’s not how long it takes, it’s who’s taking you.

Roslyn: Well, what do you do with yourself?
Gay: Just live.
Roslyn: How does anyone “just live”?
Gay: Well, you start by going to sleep. You get up when you feel like it. You scratch yourself.
You fry yourself some eggs. You see what kind of a day it is; throw stones at a can, whistle.
The Misfits
