They show that she had a thing or two to say about life, love, and how to be happy, and she had a lot of credibility due to the life she led.
They show that she had a thing or two to say about life, love, and how to be happy, and she had a lot of credibility due to the life she led. Here are our selected quotes that give the best insight into what she was thinking during her time here. It speaks to the imbalance of attention given to only the best and brightest among us, even though we all have something to say, a talent to behold, and a spotlight that we deserve.
Look around you today for something to smile about. Tomorrow it might be something different, but there will always be many things available to put your attention on.
As long as you keep hope and optimism alive and keep the door open for something better to come along, it often will. Most of us know that rules are made to bed, and some might even need to be broken when going after the things that you want. While chasing a career and money many men also give up relationships because they see the two as mutually exclusive.
Only later when they realize the emptiness of having success and no one to share it with do they regret their decision to pursue the almighty dollar at all costs. Many of her quotes attempt to shed light on who she was a person, and to remind her spectators that there was more to her than just a pretty face in designer clothing.
Sometimes it can be easy to get fixated on someone else, whether it be a celebrity or someone you know personally. She was discovered after doing a magazine shoot and never looked back. Success was important to her, and by mapping the course of her life you can see that she was driven to succeed without second guessing herself based on opinions of others. In the world of celebrity this quote must ring doubly true. With so many people out to use you for their own ends and drop you as soon as your value is used up, it must have been from personal experience that she was able to deliver this line.
It would be sad indeed if we failed in one area of our lives and then projected that failure to another area. Cast those memories of failure aside as you try your next endeavor. Many times two-faced people are nice to your face but then go around behind your back being ugly.
It could have been her way of revealing that she might have had an ugly side as well. Only Marilyn knows for sure. Several reports from those that knew Monroe well say that she was usually in good spirits, despite what was said about her in the aftermath of her death. It seems that Monroe may have led a troubled childhood and had a whirlwind of a life but always maintained her spirits with hope. Deep down, even with all the fame, she saw herself as an ordinary girl looking for an ordinary guy next door type.
Maybe not every girl, but the right girl. The chances missed by sitting on the sideline, benched by fear. After being recognized for her photogenic nature she would later grace Playboy magazine and spend much of her adult life as a sex symbol. Rather than lament being seen as a sex symbol she seemed to utterly enjoy it, and even in her private life would use it as a way to get what she wanted. Think of her birthday song to JFK, that was a woman that was enjoying being a woman and all of the things it enabled her to do.
I do sin, but I am not the devil. And in a few sentences she pretty much sums up all of us, as nobody is without sin, and few of us go to such extremes of being an angel or a devil. Perhaps it was her way of digesting all of the fame and attention, and a way for her to make sense of it all and stay true to herself.
Being the adoration of many men during her time and even having the sort of relationship she had with the president of the United States, she was anything but a small girl. For years she must have dreamed of being an actress, married to policeman and waiting to be discovered. After seeing all that comes with the dream she remembers fondly what it was like to just dream of being an actress.
But the fact that she was just focusing on her life, and being the best she could be, and the money was just a byproduct is in line with how things typically work out. If you focus on the money you rarely get it, but if you focus on what you do and do it exceptionally well the money usually follows.
Sometimes things go wrong, but rather than wallow in it she used it to better appreciate the times when things go right. Some might say that she was discovered by accident, that she used her sex appeal to get and stay famous, and got acting jobs because of the way she looked and who she slept with, but a quote like this tells a different story. This is one instance where she gives insight into the kind of drive she had and can be an inspiration to stick with things until fruition.
We can take a page from her notebook and use alone time to recharge and refresh. It must be hard for a celebrity and a sex symbol to find true love in the world, and maybe she lived and died without ever finding it. This quote resonates because it is something we can all relate to.
