These Quotes Will Make You Love Being A Woman (or wish you were one)

The journals she left behind carry the heavy and profound weight of honest, brave and intellectual poetry. It's no wonder that her quotes are timeless and continue to echo throughout the generations.

March is Women’s History Month, and who better to celebrate it with than the world’s most famous Hollywood star, Marilyn Monroe? Well, of course there are many women to celebrate it with, but if you read my blog with relative consistency, you know that I love to write about Marilyn Monroe whenever I get the chance.

She’s mostly known for her body, her red lipstick and her bleach blonde hair, but I know her the most as an artist. Not only was she a wonderful comedienne, singer, dancer and dramatic actress, but also she was a talent with words. The journals she left behind carry the heavy and profound weight of honest, brave and intellectual poetry. It’s no wonder that her quotes are timeless and continue to echo throughout the generations.
