Marilyn Monroe in World War II
Marilyn Monroe in World War II

Courtesy U.S. Army. Photographer David Conover.
Marilyn Monroe was born Norma Jean Mortenson in 1926. She starred in many popular films, was married to and divorced from both Arthur Miller and Joe DiMaggio, and died of an overdose of barbiturates in 1962. Nevertheless, interest in her life and her story continues in popular culture and in feminist studies.

Select Marilyn Monroe Quotations

• I wanted to be treated as a human being who had earned a few rights since her orphanage days.

• It's nice to be included in people's fantasies but you also like to be accepted for your own sake.

• I think that when you are famous every weakness is exaggerated.

• I'm very definitely a woman and I enjoy it.

• I don't mind living in a man's world as long as I can be a woman in it.

• People had a habit of looking at me as if I were some kind of mirror instead of a person. They didn't see me, they saw their own lewd thoughts, then they white-masked themselves by calling me the lewd one.

• I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot.

• To a reporter: Please don't make me a joke.  End the interview with what I believe. I don't mind making jokes, but I don't want to look like one.

• Fame is like caviar, you know -- it's good to have caviar but not when you have it at every meal.

• If fame goes by, 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 experienced, but that's not where I live.

• It stirs up envy, fame does.

• Seeing your name in front page headlines as if you were some kind of a major accident or gun battle is always startling. No matter how often you see it you don't get used to it. You keep thinking-"That's about me. The whole country's reading about me. Maybe the world is.

• I've been on a calendar, but never on time.

• I am invariably late for appointments ... sometimes, as much as two hours. I've tried to change my ways but the things that make me late are too strong, and too pleasing.

• I restore myself when I'm alone.

• This life is what you make it. No 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.

• People respect you because they feel you've survived hard times and endured, and although you've become famous, you haven't become phony.

• The worst thing that happens to people when they dress up and go to a party is that they leave their real selves at home. They're like people on a stage playing somebody else. They play that they're important, and they want you to meet their importance, not themselves.

• The truth is I've never fooled anyone. I've let people fool themselves. They didn't bother to find out who and what I was.

• Creativity has got to start with humanity and when you're a human being, you feel, you suffer.

• I'm for the individual as opposed to the corporation. The way it is the individual is the underdog, and with all the things a corporation has going for them the individual comes out banged on her head. The artist is nothing. It's really tragic.

• [about reading Rilke's Letters to a Young Poet] I was never told what to read, and nobody ever gave me anything to read. You know -- the way there are certain books that everybody reads while they're growing up? . . . So what I do is -- nights when I've got nothing else to do I go to the Pickwick bookstore on Hollywood Boulevard. And I just open books at random -- or when I come to a page or a paragraph I like, I buy that book. So last night I bought this one. Is that wrong?

• Arthur Miller wouldn't have married me if I had been nothing but a dumb blonde.

About Her Childhood

• I learned also that the best way to keep out of trouble was by never complaining or asking for anything.

• At twelve I looked like a girl of seventeen. My body was developed and shapely. But no one knew this but me. I still wore the blue dress and the blouse the orphanage provided. They made me look like an overgrown lummox.

• (about Norma Jean, her childhood self) With success all around me, I can still feel her frightened eyes looking out of mine. She keeps saying, "I never lived, I was never loved," and often I get confused and think it's I who am saying it.

• I watched the faces of the listeners when the minister would cry out how much God loved them and how much they needed to set themselves right with God. They were faces without any argument in them, just tired faces that were glad to hear Somebody loved them.

- Werner Erhard

“Every second that you live you are never going to get back. You are never going to get to change what you said, didn’t say, did, or didn’t do. Live how you want to live. Act how you want to be remembered, because you never know how long or short you are going to be here.”

Never take yourself too seriously.”
- Og Mandino

- Earl Nightingale-
“The best way to prepare for life is to begin to live.”

Don’t try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.”
- Anthony Robbins
“Life is a succession of moments. To live each one is to succeed.”
- Corita Kent
“Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.”

“Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before, how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way, and that so many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.”
- Isak Dinesen
Most of the things people worry about are things that won’t even matter to them a few months from now.
“Expecting life to treat you well because you are a good person is like expecting an angry bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian.”
- Shari R. Barr
The only thing that you can really expect out of life is that no matter what kind of person you are, there will be good times and there will be bad times.
“If you want to make life easy, make it hard.
- Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
When you are a type of person who is on top of things, who does what needs to be done, who puts in the hard work, who avoids taking the easy way out, you create a strong mentality, one that can withstand just about any blow life can throw at you. If you aren’t that type of person, even the slightness nudge from life can be enough to knock you over.
“These then are my last words to you. Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.”
- William James-

“Life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it.” – Charles Swindoll
The bad things in life happen to everyone. Don’t let what happens to you determine how your life will play out. Rely on your reactions to what happens to you instead. When you’re faced with life challenges, you can either throw in the towel and spend the rest of your complaining about how unfair life has been to you or you can take action and use those challenges as fuel to fight for the life you want to live.
In dwelling, live close to the ground.
In thinking, keep to the simple.
In conflict, be fair and generous.
In governing, don’t try to control.
In work, do what you enjoy.
In family life, be completely present.
- Lao-tzu-
“Some days life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we’re here we should dance.”
- Unknown-
“One day at a time – this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone: and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.”
- Ida Scott Taylor-
“And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”
- Abraham Lincoln
Life isn’t about how long you live, life is about how much fun you have while you’re living.
“Learn from the past, live for today, work for the future.”
- Stefan Rudolph-
“Love life and life will love you back. Love people and they will love you back.”
- Arthur Rubinstein
What you put out comes back to you. If you want more good in your life, do more good.

“One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it’s worth watching.”
- Gerard Way
Just like how you wouldn’t want to sit through an uneventful movie, you probably wouldn’t want to reach the end of your life and realize how little of it is worth remembering. Use the time you have left, no matter how much time you may feel you have already wasted, to make the remainder of your time here worth remembering.
“Certain things in life simply have to be experienced and never explained. Love is such a thing.”
- Paulo Coelho
“Life doesn’t get better until you get better.”
- Unknown
Often times, when life isn’t going our way, we spend far too much time complaining about how life isn’t going our way and complain even more when it doesn’t magically change for the better on its own. If your life is headed in the wrong direction, don’t just sit there complaining about it. Figure out a way to turn things around. Grab the steering wheel and direct your life in the direction you want it to go..
