3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge: Day One

Thanks to Chris for the nomination.

Simple rules: Quote a day for three days, brief explanation, nominate three others. Since rebellion is in my bone marrow…I challenge ANYONE to take it on.


I think it’s self explanatory as Marilyn Monroe had mental demons of her own and no amount of beauty, fame, success could fix that. There are some *idgets* who think the quote is some sort of excuse to be an asshole and blame people who won’t put up with it. This is indicative of their ignorance.

For me, it just means…I’m a beautiful mess and you’re not worthy of the good things you like about me if you can’t accept and handle that it comes with a plethora of flaws you don’t like.

  1. Bravo, N! Bravo! I couldn’t WAIT to see your quotes. I love the last portion of this quote. Hope you remain strong in your encounters with the ‘dish. X

  2. Very fitting & very cool! (& rainbows, unicorns & stuff! NOT NOT NOT!!) 😉

    • I keep an 8 by 10 copy of that quote on my wall as a reminder when I get all simpery over being rejected. I’m good and bad and they don’t get the good if they don’t have the balls to handle the bad. Fuck ’em! Such flowery prose I write!

    I am not sure if I’m allowed to post a quote in the comments or if the game works differently, but hopefully it’s okay to place one here.

    “Writing is like driving at night in the fog. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.”E.L.Doctorow.

    The quote is about writing, of course, but for me it has become a way to deal with living with bipolar disorder–on difficult days I make sure I turn on the low lights of the metaphoric car of my life and focus only on the thing that is immediately ahead of me. I wrote a post about this quote and its applications to the bipolar life here: https://writinghighsandlows.wordpress.com/2014/11/09/the-low-lights-and-the-fog/
