Miss Monroe

I recently found a site with Marilyn's quote, I quite like them and since i love to collect here are some that stuck out to me

"No one ever told me I was pretty when I was a little girl. All little girls should be told they're pretty, even if they aren't."

"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."

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when their right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust noone but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."

"A wise girl kisses but doesn't love, listens but doesn't believe, and leaves before she is left."

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."

"I am good, but not an angel. I do sin,
but I am not the devil. I am just
a small girl in a big world trying to
find someone to love."

"I've never fooled anyone. I've let people fool themselves. They didn't bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn't argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn't."

Theme from Valley of the Dolls

Ever go through something and have a song explain your feelings to a dot.... weird right ... music food for the soul.
I first heard this song on the pilot episode of Nurse Jackie. I searched feverishly for it of course so did other people. Finally found the name only original version online is kinda poor quality but i love it and i know what it means. And only Dionne Warwick gets it just right ...the song makes you feel like lying on a blanket and staring at the sky...just wondering

Theme from Valley of the Dolls

Blessed are the forgetful

How happy is the blameless vestal's lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd.

There so much deep meaning in the movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind... its one of my favs. It shows how unpredictable love is, 1 minute you have the moon and sky the next its a dark cloudless sky in the middle of the abyss. Its not that fairytale romantic comedy tripe. Its the truth about real people and how things go wrong.

Joel and Clementine are lovers who relationship like many others gets a little out of control. Words are said and impulsive Clementine goes to a doctor who specialises in memory erasing. Hurt and tormented Joel does the same. It shows that we all go thru times when we think that its just better to forget. But beneath the arguments and sometimes hatred there's still love and good times... then he wants it back. But its too late the memory of his Clementine is gone. The irony of the movie is that no matter how badly we screw up our love what's meant to be is meant to be. They find each other back ...

It's hard to write.... my soul is tired. Has your soul ever been tired and just felt like lying in a corner waiting for the wings of love to lift it up. Your mind is jumbled with thoughts, you sometimes forget to breathe, you are tired. Like that movie character who falls to his knees in the rain and looks to the heavens, hands raised, questioning everything. Just go my way, make it be right; 'oh take me back to the start'. Just one more time God of peace and mercy make it right
