Happy Birthday, Marilyn

On this day, 85 years ago, a little girl named Norma Jeane Mortenson was born.  Norma Jeane grew into Marilyn Monroe, arguably one of the most famous, iconic women in the world.

Marilyn was a lot of things: beautiful, sexy, funny, sad...but she was also pretty darn smart.  In honor of what would have been her 85 birthday, here are a couple of quotes from Ms. Monroe:

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

"If you're gonna be two-faced at least make one of them pretty."

"All little girls should be told they are pretty, even if they aren't."

"Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition."

"I don't mind being burdened with being glamorous and sexual. Beauty and femininity are ageless and can't be contrived, and glamour, although the manufacturers won't like this, cannot be manufactured. Not real glamour; it's based on femininity."
