    What a smart women :)

  • Becca Fletcher

    She was so gorgeous, full of life and loved herself at size 14ish. What a body image role model!

    Our first fake Marilyn Monroe quote! They are all around us, and no one seems to question them. Size zero didn't exist in her time. Marilyn dieted and exercised religiously. She was never a modern day sixteen (24 inch waist!). She didn't spend all of her time spouting quotable encouragement to girls with negative body images. Does this make her an awful person? No. Who decided that Marilyn Monroe was the official advocate of body conscious girls, anyway?

  • Danelle Dee

    Not sure that size '0' was around in Norma Jean's day but the words are wise.

    However, we forget that WE are society. As a collective 'force' we have to change this, change society.

    More people should think like that...but Marilyn didn't say that, size 0 didn't exist in her time...Marilyn died in 1962 & a size 0 didn't exist until 1966 because of the model Twiggy.

    Thank you Bridgette! It annoys me how many people blindly believe what they find on the internet!

    clearly some people need to read some of the previous comments. like the one that says I do not care who said it and I actually do not like marilyn.

    Cailtlin, If you actually check what size she was, she was at one point something similar to our size four

When someone rejects the help they have initially asked for and go into every excuse of why they can't then that's the time to walk away. They don't truly want to be free and in remaining there you are keeping them stuck too.

There's never enough time. But time is so relative, therefore we must make the most of it. Because when it's time to say goodbye, our life begins once again and then, time is infinite. But it's the time we spend with certain people and things on this planet that make time seem short and never enough.

Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and its better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.
