(borrowed) blonde wisdom

It’s better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone.
- Marilyn Monroe

Caustic Blonde
posted this little pic and quote on her blog last week, and it got me thinking about solitude and independence. I'll be ruminating on and writing about it this week. Check back for this blonde's thoughts on another blonde's wisdom.

This is my favorite quote from Marilyn Monroe, she is basically saying that it is better to be alone than to settle with just anyone.

i like this quote. it defeats the whole notion from the article you posted a while ago, and the other one a commenter posted about how women should settle for a man because they would be happier in the long run if they did than they would be alone. it's interesting what the article says, very well written and speaks some truths, but...what if a typical marriage isn't more important to me than love in the first place, has never been and will never be? settling isn't for everyon.
