there had to be so much sadness behind that quote...

Bob said...

Kind of sad, but, then, I think that's the true essence of MM.

SteveA said...

Is that loving with detachment?

Wow I think out of all the quotes you posted I like this one the best. Marilyn was a pretty smart chick for her time. And, she looks smokin in that pic you put up!

Amen to that. And that goes for nice boys as well.

Bobbie's Babbles said...

I think she was also good at "kiss and don't tell".

Jan said...

She seemed like such a lonely girl. Thought of you the other day when an friend was all psyched up about the new Joan Rivers movie.

Victor said...

She was a lot brighter than she was given credit.

Daij said...

That was a great quote. Sad though.

Very wise indeed! Sad but true!

Sharon McPherson said...

This is why I love Marilyn ... I have an affinity with her ... Perhaps sad, but very real. Some people are exposed to the harshness of life. This post touched a chord with me Michael xx

Love MM!!

jason said...

she's right. And I've never been wise.
ahem

Jill said...

I wish I had known those wise words when I was in my 20s...although I think it applies more to the type of men she attracted or were attracted to.

Susan Deborah said...

Well, MM knew it all but never applied it to herself. I feel exceedingly sad whenever I see her.

First time here. I think I am enjoying it. What say, shall follow your works.

Cheerio!
Susan
