“Those things the press has been saying about me [are fine] if they want to give the wrong impression. It’s as simple as all that. I’m not interested in being a millionaire. The one thing a person wants most in life is usually something basic that money can’t buy. I’m not the girl next door - I’m not a goody-goody - but I think I’m human.
As far as I’m concerned, the happiest time of my life is now. There’s a future, and I can’t wait to get to it. It should be interesting.”
- Marilyn Monroe [“Marilyn: Her Life In Her Own Words” by George Barris]
