Marilyn Monroe was a great combination of beauty and brains. She was an unfortunate successful lady who has gone from actress to icon to licensed brand name; only Elvis and James Dean have competed her in market share. In 1999, Marilyn was chosen as the 'Sexiest Woman of the Century' by People Magazine. She was a witty women and her wit completes her cosmic victory. Here are some great quotes by Marilyn Monroe.

"I've been on a calendar, but never on Time."

"Husbands are chiefly good lovers when they are betraying their wives."

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

"Dreaming about being an actress, is more exciting then being one."
"Before marriage, a girl has to make love to a man to hold him. After marriage, she has to hold him to make love to him."

"Dogs never bite me. Just humans."

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

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

"If you can make a girl laugh - you can make her do anything."

I think people liked Marilyn Monroe because at that time she was what men and women desired her because there boring June Cleaver housewife just wasn't getting the job done as it were...and women desired her because they wanted to be desired like that...this was also a time when sexy wasn't talked about as openly as it is now, and women were to be meek and mild... And when she was none of they above in was a real turn on....and now she is the Iconic symbol of sex and sexy...

She was a size nine, she wasn't a double zero. She ate and that's a true woman.
Someone who can make mistakes and own up to them. She was heartfelt witty compassionate.
She was a beaten and bruised soul before she became Marilyn she was Norma Jean, nothing special,
then she found her way...

She's a role model just cause of her embrace, the joy she gave. Her aura left people in awe. She never believed compliments - due to all she's been through, which is probably what made her so unhappy.
She was an amazing actress who felt her roles and believed in them.
She's more complex then what she shows to be. She put on her hollywood facade for too long and almost forgot what she would be like otherwise infront of other people. Her growing depression lead her to taking Barbiturates which further complexed her emotions causing a career breakdown which later on apparently caused her death.

And responding to what someone said earlier..
Marilyn was born without her parents. She lived moving to different homes. She made a career and persona out of nothing.

After everything she's been through, what she did for herself and what that lead to it's pretty sad to think of her life as less than inspirational.
Clearly you have no empathy whatsoever or you just haven't done your research (remember don't just look at one website or one comment to make a conclusion about someone who's changed many peoples lives.)

She was a LEGEND!!!!
She was a true icon
the perfect example of femininity
she was sexy and classy
men wanted to date her and women want to be just like her!!
We need more role models like her these days, rather then seeing celebrities falling out of night clubs drunk or drugged up.

There was a special quality about her that appealed to both sexes. I liked her quote when asked what she slept in, "Chanel #5".

Guys... Take a look at her pictures. They were scandalous then.. She's not a role model.. Sure she might be witty and beautiful and a good actress but that's it.
