"I've never fooled anyone. I've let people fool themselves. They didn't bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn't argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn't."
Marilyn Monroe

"Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't."
