Still she hangs like a bat in the heads of the men who met her, and none of us will ever forget her. - Sammy Davis, Jr.
Rest in Peace, Norma Jeane Mortenson (June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962)
I never wanted to be Marilyn — it just happened. Marilyn’s like a veil I wear over Norma Jeane.
“She will go on eternally.”- Jackie Kennedy Onassis
you little sister,
you wore that beauty humbly,
and your soul born from modest people,
never knew how to own it,
for it would not be beauty otherwise.
It vanished, like golden dust.
It was the world that taught it to you,
So that your beauty became the world’s.
- Extract from ‘Marilyn’, a poem by Pier Paolo Pasolini, 1962.

When you look at Marilyn on the screen, you don’t want anything bad to happen to her. You really care that she should be all right…happy. - Natalie Wood
A lady from way back … quiet, gentle, gracious, and the sort of girl you’d like to bring home and say, ‘Mama, this is Marilyn.’
- Columnist Henry McLemore,
One of the most unappreciated people in the world.
- Joshua Logan
Fifty years on, we’re still watching her movies and talking about her. That’s not a dumb woman trust me.
- Lauren Bacall
She will go on eternally.
- Jackie Kennedy Onassis
Norma Jeane was always a butterfly. She was beautiful all her life, within and without. Like all beautiful butterflies, she had to fly away.
- Jim Dougherty
She was a nice calm and sensitive person. She put a lot of effort into her work and was caring.
- Lana Del Rey
She’s wonderful. Cosmological. I wanted to put a picture of her in my latest book, as a celestial object.
- Stephen Hawking
But, like the beautiful flower she was, she bloomed and died…and so the cycle of life goes on. The Lord giveth the Lord taketh away.
- Bill Pursell
If my life could be lived again I would make every decision—except about being an actress—differently. But the result would probably be the same, so it has all been worth it.
