What Would Marilyn Do?

Marilyn Monroe

Today would have been Marilyn Monroe's 88th birthday, and to mark the occasion Rosie Reeves of Harper's Bazaar has put together some of the starlets most memorable quotes...

On life...
"Fear is stupid. So are regrets."
"Sometimes things fall apart so that better things can fall together."
"Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are."
"It's not too much fun to know yourself too well or think you do - everyone needs a little conceit to carry them through and past the falls."
"A girl doesn't need anyone that doesn't need her."

On success...
"If I'd observed all the rules, I'd never have got anywhere."
"A career is wonderful, but you can't curl up with it on a cold night."
"Fame is like caviar, you know - it's good to have caviar but not when you have it at every meal."
"I don’t stop when I’m tired. I only stop when I’m done."

On love…
"All a girl really wants from a guy is for him to prove to her that they are not all the same."
"A woman can bring a new love to each man she loves, providing there are not too many."
"A wise girl kisses but doesn't love, listens but doesn't believe, and leaves before she is left."

On shoes...
"I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot."
"Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world."

On feminism...
"If you spend your life competing with business men, what do you have? A bank account and ulcers!"
"I don't mind living in a man's world as long as I can be a woman in it."
"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."
"Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition."

Which one's are your favourites?
