a sense of life

"marilyn monroe on the screen was an image of pure, innocent, childlike joy in living. she projected the sense of a person born and reared in some radiant utopia untouched by suffering, unable to conceive of ugliness or evil, facing life with the confidence, the benevolence, and the joyous self-flaunting of a child or a kitten who is happy to display its own attractiveness as the best gift it can offer the world, and who expects to be admired for it, not hurt. in real life, marilyn monroe's probable suicide -or worse: a death that might have been an accident, suggesting that, to her, the difference did not matter- was a declaration that we live in a world which made it impossible for her kind of spirit, and for the things she represented, to survive."

"i'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. i make mistakes, i am out of control and at times hard to handle. but if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." -marilyn monroe
