Marilyn Monroe Quotes

Welcome to these Marilyn Monroe quotes. I hope these quotes by Marilyn Monroe are helpful to you.

I believe that everything happens for a reason.

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
