Marilyn Monroe Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Marilyn Monroe from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

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

This life is what you make it.

Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world.
