“I am not interested in money. I just want to be wonderful.”

“the nicest thing for me is sleep, then at least i can dream”

“I want to grow old without facelifts... I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I've made. Sometimes I think it would be easier to avoid old age, to die young, but then you'd never complete your life, would you? You'd never wholly know you”

“If I'd observed all the rules, I'd never have got anywhere”

“The body is meant to be seen, not all covered up.”

“It's better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone - so far.”

“I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot”

“What do I wear in bed? Why, Chanel No. 5, of course.”

“I don't mind living in a man's world as long as I can be a woman in it.”

“Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul.”

“It's not true I had nothing on, I had the radio on.”

“I knew I belonged to the public and to the world, not because I was talented or even beautiful, but because I had never belonged to anything or anyone else.”

“Dreaming about being an actress, is more exciting then being one.”

When she died in 1962 at age 36, she left an estate valued at $1.6 million. In her will, Monroe bequeathed 75% of that estate to Lee Strasberg, her acting coach, and 25% to Dr. Marianne Kris, her psychoanalyst. A trust fund provided her mother, Gladys Baker Eley, with $5,000 a year. When Dr. Kris died in 1980, she passed her 25% on to the Anna Freud Centre, a children's psychiatric institute in London. Since Strasberg's death in 1982, his 75% has been administered by his widow, Anna, and her lawyer, Irving Seidman
