Today is my lovely girl-Marilyn's-birthday!!! So here is some of her wonderful wisdom for this and the next generation to benefit from.
I don't mind being burdened with being glamorous and sexual. Beauty and
femininity are ageless and can't be contrived, and glamour, although the
manufacturers won't like this, cannot be manufactured. Not real
glamour; it's based on femininity.
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.
She was a girl who knew how to be happy even when she was sad. And that’s important—you know.
Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.
I want to grow old without facelifts. I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I have made.
