By Marilyn Monroe
"I knew I belonged to the public and to the world, not because I was talented or even beautiful, but because I had never belonged to anything or anyone else."

"There was my name up in lights. I said, 'God, somebody's made a mistake.' But there it was, in lights. And I sat there and said, 'Remember, you're not a star.' Yet there it was up in lights."

"I'm going to be a great movie

About Marilyn Monroe
"Marilyn is a kind of ultimate. She is uniquely feminine. Everything she does is different, strange, and exciting, from the way she talks to the way she uses that magnificent torso. She makes a man proud to be a man."
-- Clark Gable

Marilyn Monroe: ’50s Sex Goddess

Marilyn Monroe personified Hollywood glamour with an unparalleled glow and energy that enamored the world. Although she was an alluring beauty with voluptuous curves and a generous pout, Marilyn was more than a '50s sex goddess. Her apparent vulnerability and innocence, in combination with an innate sensuality, has endeared her to the global consciousness. She dominated the age of movie stars to become, without question, the most famous woman of the 20th Century




Without a doubt, one of the most internationally known and recognized stars of contemporary history, Madonna has achieved an unthinkable amount in the past 20 years of her career. Madonna rocketed to stardom so quickly in 1984 that it obscured most of her musical virtues. Appreciating her music became even more difficult as the decade wore on, as discussing her lifestyle became more common than discussing her music. However, one of Madonna's greatest achievements is how she manipulated the media and the public with her music, her videos, her publicity, and her sexuality. She has dominated the music charts, she has hit the silver screen, she has entered the publishing industry, and she is probably one of the most publicized celebrities of the 20th century. Arguably, Madonna was the first female pop star to have complete control of her music and image.

Oprah Winfrey

“Winfrey stands as a beacon, not only in the worlds of media and entertainment but also in the larger realm of public discourse. At 44, she has a personal fortune estimated at more than half a billion dollars. She owns her own production company, which creates feature films, prime-time TV specials and home videos. An accomplished actress, she won an Academy Award nomination for her role in The Color Purple, and this fall will star in her own film production of Toni Morrison's Beloved.

But it is through her talk show that her influence has been greatest. When Winfrey talks, her viewers — an estimated 14 million daily in the U.S. and millions more in 132 other countries — listen. Any book she chooses for her on-air book club becomes an instant best seller. When she established the "world's largest piggy bank," people all over the country contributed spare change to raise more than $1 million (matched by Oprah) to send disadvantaged kids to college. When she blurted that hearing about the threat of mad-cow disease "just stopped me cold from eating another burger!", the perceived threat to the beef industry was enough to trigger a multimillion-dollar lawsuit (which she won).”

Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin."

There is a terrible hunger for love. We all experience that in our lives - the pain, the loneliness. We must have the courage to recognize it. The poor you may have right in your own family.
Find them.
Love them.

Before you speak, it is necessary for you to listen, for God speaks in the silence of the heart.

 Little things are indeed little, but to be faithful in little things is a great thing.

A sacrifice to be real must cost, must hurt, must empty ourselves. The fruit of silence is prayer, the fruit of prayer is faith, the fruit of faith is love, the fruit of love is service, the fruit of service is peace.

Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, OM (August 27, 1910September 5, 1997) was an Albanian Catholic nun who founded the Missionaries of Charity. Her work among the poor of Kolkata (Calcutta) made her one of the world's most famous people, and it is widely thought of that she will be canonized shortly.


Teresa was awarded the Templeton Prize in 1973, the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979, and India's highest civilian award, the Bharat Ratna in 1980. She was made an Honorary Citizen of the United States in 1996 (one of only six). She was beatified by Pope John Paul II in October 2003, hence she may be properly called Blessed Teresa by Catholics. She was the first and only person to be featured on an Indian postage stamp while still alive.


Teresa was also known for her books about Christian spirituality and prayer, some of which were written together with her close friend Frère Roger. While for some, Teresa was the embodiment of a "living saint,"



She walks in beauty, like the night

Of cloudless climes and starry skies;

And all that's best of dark and bright

Meet in her aspect and her eyes…

                      -- Lord Byron, She Walks in Beauty

Paris Hilton

Known to the tabloids as "Paris the Heiress," Hilton made a name for herself as a party-hopping socialite early in the 21st century. She is the great-granddaughter of hotel magnate Conrad Hilton, granddaughter of Barron Hilton, grand-niece of Nicholas Conrad "Nicky" Hilton (the one-time husband of Elizabeth Taylor) and daughter of real estate magnate Rick Hilton. An occasional model, she also has had a few small film roles, most notably appearing as herself in the hi-fashion satire Zoolander (2001, with Ben Stiller). Her younger sister Nicky is also a well-known socialite. In 2003 Hilton starred in a fish-out-of-water "reality" show called The Simple Life. The show was a takeoff on the 1960s sitcom Green Acres, with city girls Hilton and Nicole Richie (daughter of singer Lionel Richie) spending a month on a farm in Altus, Arkansas. A big hit, the show spawned sequels in 2004 and 2005. In 2004 Hilton released a book, Confessions of an Heiress, and in 2005 she appeared in the remake of the 1950s horror film classic House of Wax (also starring Elisha Cuthbert).


By Paris Hilton

Every woman should have four pets in her life. A mink in her closet, a jaguar in her garage, a tiger in her bed, and a jackass who pays for everything.

I don't want to be known as the granddaughter of the Hiltons. I want to be known as Paris.

It's traditional for an heiress to be raised in a sheltered way. No one thinks that's true of me, but it actually was.

No matter what a woman looks like, if she's confident, she's sexy.

If I was a girl again, I would like to be like my fans, I would like to be like Madonna.


By Oprah Winfrey

It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from.  The ability to triumph begins with you.  Always.”

I was raised to believe that excellence is the best deterrent to racism or sexism. And that's how I operate my life.

My philosophy is that not only are you responsible for your life, but doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment

With every experience, you alone are painting your own canvas, thought by thought, choice by choice.
