So and So Said: Marilyn's Philosophy

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” -Marilyn Monroe

What is it about her that is still so captivating after all this time? I've read several biographies about her, but none were able to explain the way she has remained fixed in our collective imagination for the last fifty years. I love the idea of learning to trust no one but yourself. That's a lesson I am still working on.
