I am the “Intuitive Fashioneer” – bringing Thoughtful and Provoking Comments into the virtual landscape of “What ifs?” Meandering the Blogosphere with Uncommon Quotes used to bridge Separate Realities into One.
What IF two or more famous individuals come together at the Networlding Think Tank and exchange thoughtful and provoking insights with each other? And, that when mixed together create a compound of new and unique visions for the betterment of humanity? What would this look like? Feel like? Sound like? And, how would they interact with each other? What would the end result – possibly – be?
Read The Intuitive Fashioneer – to see and share your insights into the Uncommon Quotes of those who have paved the way and continue their saga of possibilities…
Cleopatra: I am Queen of Ancient Egypt. “I will not be triumphed over.”
Marilyn: Oh, I get it – I am a Hollywood Celebrity…. And, “If I’d observed all the rules, I’d never have got anywhere.” Thinking of your historic time, it must have been difficult to be a queen!
Cleopatra: Ahem, yes… However, “Celerity is never more admired than by the negligent.” And, yes, it was difficult, but my Destiny.
Marilyn: Well! Being a celebrity had its moments, I agree – and it had its challenges…“I don’t mind living in a man’s world as long as I can be a woman in it.”
Marilyn: I speak “sexy” – However, “A sex symbol becomes a thing. I just hate to be a thing.” And, “Being a sex symbol is a heavy load to carry, especially when one is tired, hurt and bewildered.” So, I had to carry myself – sometimes with this weight – and feeling of being alone….
Cleopatra: I agree – Some may think that I was a sex symbol, and many people do not realize that I am a descendent of Alexander the Great – a Greek conqueror who was of strength and tenacity, much of how I had to carry myself as a ruler.
Marilyn: Well, I am a movie goddess, adored by the public – and “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.”
Cleopatra: Is it not interesting to note – that we have focused upon our titles and not our being… “All strange and terrible events are welcome, but comforts we despise.” How is this so?
Marilyn: I see where you are going with this –We should look towards the comforts of being a woman – and ourselves…. “A career is wonderful, but you can’t curl up with it on a cold night.” However, “I restore myself when I’m alone.” Oh, how it must have felt for your honor to have been challenged as a woman….
Marilyn: Yes…. Yes… “I’ve never dropped anyone I believed in.” Because we are all human – and need to be cared for – as, “I have feelings too. I am still human. All I want is to be loved, for myself and for my talent.”
Cleopatra: It is good to see that we are not that much different….. You and I….
