"I know I will never be happy but I know I can be gay!" Marilyn Monroe
+ Attributions This was written to Monroe's psychologist in a letter, in 1961. She definitely became unhappy, or rather more unhappy, as her fame grew and her time in Hollywood increased. The things she said in the years and months before she died reveal a woman who was clearly disillusioned with her fame. Depression    Happiness    Sad   

"How do we know the pain or another's earlier years, let alone all that he drags with him since along the way at best a lot of leeway is needed for the other - yet how much is unhealthy for one to bear. I think to love bravely is the best and accept - as much as one can bear." Marilyn Monroe
+ Attributions Monroe's early life was troubled by her mother, Gladys Baker, who was mentally unstable. She was given to foster parents, but despite her presumably stable time with them, her mother arrived once and demanded Monroe be returned to her. Marilyn was zipped into a duffel bag and in an ensuing scuffle it burst open, dumping Monroe on the ground crying while her foster mother and birth mother fought. This was just one of the many episodes with her mother that no doubt traumatized a young Marilyn Monroe, and as we see above from her diary, she is aware that these things can affect us our entire lives.

"Dogs never bite me. Just humans." Marilyn Monroe
+ Attributions Truman Capote, author of the famous “In Cold Blood” quoted Monroe saying this in a collection of short stories named “Music for Chameleons.” The short story it presents in is named “A Beautiful Child,” certainly an overt reference to Monroe herself. The subject matter Capote wrote about took place in the 50s, after her divorce from Joe Dimaggio, but the story wasn’t published till 1980. Betrayal    Dogs    People    Sad
