Classic Movie Goddess Of The Month - Marilyn Monroe Part 4

Actually I should be featuring another actress this week, but I'm still on Marilyn. What can I say, she was fabulous. And if no one objects, I will continue on with another week with Ms. Monroe. Here are some of her most famous personal quotes.

I love a natural look in pictures. I like people with a feeling one way or another - it shows an inner life. I like to see that there's something going on inside them.

My problem is that I drive myself... I'm trying to become an artist, and to be true, and sometimes I feel I'm on the verge of craziness, I'm just trying to get the truest part of myself out, and it's very hard. There are times when I think, 'All I have to be is true'. But sometimes it doesn't come out so easily. I always have this secret feeling that I'm really a fake or something, a phony.

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.

To put it bluntly, I seem to have a whole superstructure with no foundation. But I'm working on the foundation.

Sex is a part of nature. I go along with nature.

A sex-symbol becomes a thing, I just hate being a thing. But if I'm going to be a symbol of something I'd rather have it sex than some other things we've got symbols of.

If I had observed all the rules, I'd never have gotten anywhere.

Fame is fickle, and I know it. It has it's compensations but it also has it's drawbacks, and I've experienced them both.

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!

Wouldn't it be nice to be like men and get notches in your belt and sleep with most attractive men and not get emotionally involved?

When Clark Gable died, I cried for 2 days straight. I couldn't eat or sleep.

Talent is developed in privacy... but everybody is always tugging at you. They'd all like sort of a chunk at you. They'd kind of like to take pieces out of you.
