These Marilyn Monroe Quotes are fascinating. They seem to be saying to me that Marilyn like everyone else had issues that she was dealing with. I am not sure she had a positive view about herself even though the public thought she was beautiful and a sex symbol.

She was born on June 1, 1926. Her real name was Norma Jeane Mortenson. Most of her early years she spent in foster homes.

Marilyn Monroe was a singer, showgirl, and model. Her modeling career opened the door to her obtaining a film contract.

I believe you will find these Marilyn Monroe quotes to be eye opening.
