In the 1950's there was no symbol of beauty that rivaled Marilyn Monroe. The actress and model was often held at outrageous expectations of beauty but seemed to meet them all in every appearance she ever made.
Meanwhile there are plenty of Monroe quotes that inspire the beauty in every human being. The most common one that comes to mind is as follows, "Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."
She was a marvel to look at but had much much more to offer the world. We decided to feature a couple of her most famous magazine covers.
