“Beneath the makeup and behind the smile I am just a girl who wishes for the world.” — Marilyn Monroe

I am absolutely  in love with quotes,

I had to stop mid-way writing about China to post these.


“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

“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 they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
— Marilyn Monroe

“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
— Marilyn Monroe (Marilyn: Her Life in Her Own Words)

“A wise girl kisses but doesn’t love, listens but doesn’t believe, and leaves before she is left.”
— Marilyn Monroe

“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.”
— Marilyn Monroe

“If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything.”
— Marilyn Monroe


I wonder if I’ll be quoted someday.

If you are not too long I will wait here for you all my life

-Oscar Wilde

God often gives nuts to toothless people

-Matt Groening

We are masters of the unsaid words but slaves of those we let slip out.

-Winston Churchill

The angels come to visit us and we only know them when they are gone.

-George Elliot

When we argue for our limitations we get to keep them.

-Evelyn Waugh

And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary decent egg. We just hatch or go bad.

-C.S Lewis

I’m a quote addict, are you?

“Saying ‘I notice you’re a nerd’ is like saying, ‘Hey, I notice that you’d rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you’d rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?’ In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even ‘lame’ is kind of lame. Saying ‘You’re lame’ is like saying ‘You walk with a limp.’ Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he’s done all right for himself.” – John Green

“Hey, girls, you’re beautiful. Don’t look at those stupid magazines with sticklike models. Eat healthy and exercise. That’s all. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re not good enough. You’re good enough, you are too good. Love your family with all your heart and listen to it. You are gorgeous, whether you’re a size 4 or 14. It doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside, as long as you’re a good person, as long as you respect others. I know it’s been told hundreds of times before, but it’s true. Hey, girls, you are beautiful.” – Gerard Way

I doubt that the imagination can be suppressed. If you truly eradicated it in a child, he would grow up to be an eggplant. – Ursula K. LeGuin

‘You matter’ – Burt Hummel

‘The important thing is to never stop loving. Never stop loving your family and friends that accept you, never stop loving the life that you lead, and most importantly, and I say this not knowing where either of you plan on being in five years, is to never stop loving each other. Because at the end of the day, at the end of the week, that is what’s going to make anything bad worth it. It’s the only thing. Don’t ever give up on each other.’

‘Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.’ – Coco Chanel

“You don’t love a woman because she is beautiful, but she is beautiful because you love her” – Anon

“What is an “instant” death anyway? How long is an instant? Is it one second? Ten? The pain of those seconds must have been awful as her heart burst and her lungs collapsed and there was no air and no blood to her brain and only raw panic. What the hell is instant? Nothing is instant. Instant rice takes five minutes, instant pudding an hour. I doubt that an instant of blinding pain feels particularly instantaneous.” – John Green (Looking for Alaska)

‘Eccentricity is not, as dull people would have us believe, a form of madness.’ – Dame Edith Sitwell

‘Personality begins when comparison ends’ – Karl Lagerfeld
