A career is wonderful, but you can't curl up with it on a cold night. ...
by Marilyn Monroe

A career is wonderful, but you can't curl up with it on a cold night.
- Marilyn Monroe

Sometimes good things fall apart
so better things can fall together.
- Marilyn Monroe

I believe that everything happens for a reason.
People change so that you can learn to let go,
things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right,
you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself,
and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
- Marilyn Monroe

A wise girl kisses but doesn't love,
listens but doesn't believe,
and leaves before she is left.
- Marilyn Monroe

fame.

but that's not where I live.

- Marilyn Monroe

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.
- Marilyn Monroe

acquaintances, and others who share your life.
