Inspirational Marilyn Monroe Quotes

 

1.) I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I’m 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. – Marilyn Monroe

 

You don’t need to be perfect to be loved. Real love is when someone loves you through the good and bad, ups and downs. Love isn’t just when it’s convent, it’s all the time.

Success isn’t easy and what makes it more difficult is the people who will become jealous along the journey. Don’ take it personal, it comes with the territory. 

 

6.) It’s better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone – so far.- Marilyn Monroe

 

When you’re unhappy decide to work on yourself before trying to get into a relationship. Be what you want to attract. If you’re unhappy, miserable and critical you will attract someone similar. Be who you want to meet.

 

7.) I am trying to find myself. Sometimes that’s not easy.- Marilyn Monroe

 

Emerson once said that “life’s greatest accomplishment will be to become who we truly are.” If you ask me, he’s right.

 

8.) The real lover is the man who can thrill you just by touching your head or smiling into your eyes – or just by staring into space.- Marilyn Monroe

 

You know love is real when you don’t need anything extra. No fancy restaurants, no exotic vacations – just that special person in your presence. That’s the simplest and purest form of love.

 

9.) Experts on romance say for a happy marriage there has to be more than a passionate love. For a lasting union, they insist, there must be a genuine liking for each other. Which, in my book, is a good definition for friendship.- Marilyn Monroe

 

The best lovers are best friends. The physical attraction will come and go, be up and down. When the passion is fleeting, it’s essential that the friendship remain. Or else, you’ve got nothing.

 

10.) We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle.- Marilyn Monroe

13.) A smart girl leaves before she is left.- Marilyn Monroe

 

Know when you are not appreciated, and keep moving forward. “Go where you are celebrated and not tolerated.”

 

14.) A strong man doesn’t have to be dominant toward a woman. He doesn’t match his strength against a woman weak with love for him. He matches it against the world.- Marilyn Monroe

 

True love has no competition. It is never You vs. Your partner. The world is tough enough already and the last thing you need is your partner keeping you down. 

 

15.) Fear is stupid. So are regrets.- Marilyn Monroe

 

If there are two commitments you want to make it will be to do things in the face of fear and to learn to live with regret. We are all scared of something and we all wish we could have done certain things differently. What will always matter most, is how we move forward. How we manage the fear is much more important than the fear itself. And how we live with our choices will influence the next decision we make.
