關於人生

“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”

「不完美是美麗的、而瘋狂是種才華,處於極度荒謬的狀態總比無聊到死好。」

 

“We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets.”

「我們全都應該在變老之前使盡力氣好好活一場。恐懼太愚蠢,後悔亦是。」

 

“If you're gonna be two-faced at least make one of them pretty.”

「如果非當雙面人不可,至少讓其中一面光鮮亮麗。」

 

“It's better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone.”

「獨自一人不高興,總比有人陪卻又不幸福好。」

 

“Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.”

「繼續嘗試,永遠記得相信自己,因為如果你不這麼做,誰會相信你?抬起頭和下巴,最重要的是微笑吧,因為人生是個美好的事情,太多值得你微笑。」

關於愛情

“If you can make a woman laugh, you can make her do anything.”

「即使你可以逗女人笑,也不代表你可以指使她做任何事。」

 

“A wise girl kisses but doesn't love, listens but doesn't believe, and leaves before she is left.”

「有智慧的女孩會親吻,但不讓自己陷入戀愛;她們會傾聽,卻不去相信;並在被拋棄之前,先行動身離去。」

關於自己

“I am good, but not an angel. I do sin, but I am not the devil. I am just a small girl in a big world trying to find someone to love.”

「我心地善良,但沒好到當個天使;我做過壞事,但並未十惡不赦成為惡魔。我只是個在大世界中的小女孩,試圖找個人愛。」

 

“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”

「我自私、沒有耐心又有點沒安全感。我會犯錯、失控、有時候很難應付,但如果你不能面對我最糟的那一面,你絕對不值得見證我最美好的模樣。」

 

“Beneath the makeup and behind the smile I am just a girl who wishes for the world.” 

「妝容底下、微笑背後的我,只是個女孩渴求全世界。」

 

 

夢露的魅力在於狂放不羈卻能同時天真可愛,用她真摯的話語告訴全世界的女性要做自己,並勇敢面對世界活下去。
