Marilyn Monroe Ahead of Her Time

I think Marilyn Monroe was way ahead of her time.  This quote is the reason why:

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am 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.”

This is so completely honest.  Aren’t we all like this sometimes?  Women AND men?  For me, I want a man who will love me at my best and my worst.  Because guess what.  My worst is when I will need him the most.  I will do this in a heartbeat for him and those I love.  I deserve this in return and will accept nothing less.  Like  Marilyn.  A lot of us are too worried about not making mistakes and being “perfect” all the time.   Some of us are fearful of the “real” us.   We may fear our anger or jealousy.  We may fear going against the grain of society.  Living full-out with passion is a choice.  Marilyn made the choice to speak her mind.  She seemed to live life full out-which I admire.

“Ever notice that what the hell is always the right decision?”

YES!  Love it.  One of my favorite quotes ever!  This page is dedicated to the gorgeous, passionate, intelligent, witty and haunting Marilyn Monroe.  I would have LOVED to cook her dinner, listened to her words of wisdom and taken every drop of advice she had.  How about you?

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

“A wise girl kisses but doesn’t love, listens but doesn’t believe, and leaves before she is left.”

“This life is what you make it. Not 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. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And babe, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soul mate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”

“Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.”

“We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets.”

“I’ve never fooled anyone. I’ve let people fool themselves. They didn’t bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn’t argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn’t.”

“I don’t mind living in a man’s world, as long as I can be a woman in it.”

“Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.”

“It’s not true that I had nothing on. I had the radio on.”

“If I’d observed all the rules I’d never have got anywhere.”

“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.”

“You never know what life is like, until you have lived it.”

“I restore myself when I’m alone.”

“Sometimes things fall apart so that better things can fall together.”

“All a girl really wants is for one guy to prove to her that they are not all the same.”

“Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.”

“Some people have been unkind. If I say I want to grow as an actress, they look at my figure. If I say I want to develop, to learn my craft, they laugh. Somehow they don’t expect me to be serious about my work.”

“To all the girls that think you’re fat because you’re not a size zero, you’re the beautiful one, its society who’s ugly.”

People love to focus on her “death” and her being a “dumb blonde.”  Not here.  Here we focus on the wonder of a woman who spoke her mind freely and lived her life with passion.  A lot of women were jealous of her:

“Sometimes I’ve been to a party where no one spoke to me for a whole evening. The men, frightened by their wives or sweeties…the ladies would gang up in a corner and discuss my dangerous character.”

This must have been lonely.  To say this in such a bottom line yet understanding way?  This is courage.  Courageous, Sultry, Witty, Intelligent Marilyn.  Sassy Bitch Goddess!

  1. “All a girl really wants is for one guy to prove to her that they are not all the same.”

    I love this quote. Time and time again I have discovered that they are. It is what is making me so cynical about men. Trust me, I don’t want to be that way either. Tired of wanting someone and that someone not wanting the same. Pretty much gave up.

  2. Jacklyn,
    My lovely Sassy one…how angry are you with men? I’m pissed off ALL the time with them. I kick box it out so I can deal with them fairly in a bottom line kind of way-the Sassy Bitch way.
