American actress, singer, model and showgirl Marilyn Monroe was born Norma Jeane Mortenson June 1, 1926 (August 5, 1962). She became a major sex symbol, starring in a number of commercially successful motion pictures during the 1950s. Marilyn Monroe left us lots of quotes and phrases, which became famous. She said about herself "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."
