Marilyn Monroe Love Quotes for Adoring Fans

Marilyn Monroe Love Quotes

The mysterious life of the beautiful blonde Hollywood actress Marilyn Monroe has ignited the imagination of more people around the world than any other celebrity. She was naturally gorgeous but troubled, and seemed to be generally unlucky in love. However, it cannot be denied that when she fell in love, she threw herself into the task of being thoroughly enamored. This is emphasized by the ten Marilyn Monroe love quotes we have compiled from different sources.

From the book Goddess: The Secret Lives of Marilyn Monroe, Marilyn is quoted to have said:

"I want to love and be loved more than anything else in the world", as a clue on how she felt about Joe di Maggio.

When she married the playwright Arthur Miller, Marilyn lovingly declared "Movies are my business, but Arthur is my life. Wherever he is, I want to be."

Marilyn also played several roles involving a woman in love, with the 1953 film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes being a classic example with the following lines she sang:

Dorothy Shaw: [singing] When love goes wrong, nothing goes right. This one thing, I know.

Lorelei Lee (played by Marilyn): [singing] When love goes wrong, a man take flight.

Then there is the ever famous song Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend, also from the same film, where Marilyn sang and danced to proclaim her love for diamonds:

Men grow cold as girls grow old, and we all lose our charm in the end
But square-cut or pear-shaped, these rocks won't lost their shape
Diamonds are a girl's best friend.

"I wanna be loved by you, just you, nobody else but you. I wanna be loved by you alo-o-one. Boop boop e doo."

The people who were around Marilyn Monroe had much to say about her beauty and demeanor. Photographer Philippe Halsman is quoted as saying:

"Marilyn was history's most phenomenal love goddess."

Look Magazine called her "...the most fragile and loveable legend of all."

In her moments of introspection, Marilyn Monroe was able to articulate who she was in the context of loving and being loved.

"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."

"The real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing your forehead or smiling into your eyes or just staring into space."

They say a thing a thing of beauty is a joy forever. Marilyn Monroe died at the young age of thirty-six under mysterious circumstances. An outpouring of grief and disbelief underlined a brief but eventful career heightened by her enduring loveliness and her emotional rollercoaster ride involving career, partnerships, and battle with personal demons. Elton John wrote a fitting eulogy for Marilyn Monroe, whom he addressed by her real name Norma Jean, with the 1973 song Candle In the Wind:

Loneliness was tough
The toughest role you ever played
Hollywood created a superstar
And pain was the price you paid
