"[Who the hell are you, man?] Officer friendly. Look here, Merle. Things are different now. There are no ‘niggers’ anymore. No ‘dumb-as-shit-inbred-white-trash-fools’ either. Only dark meat and white meat. That’s us and the dead. We survive this by pulling together, not apart.”

- Cecil Beaton on Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe and Cecil Beaton, 1956.
Slim darling, you came along and into my arms and into my heart and all the real true love I have is yours – and now I’m afraid you won’t understand and that you’ll become impatient and that I’ll lose you – but even if that happened, I wouldn’t stop loving you for you are my last love and all the rest of my life I shall love you and watch you and be ready to help you should you ever need help.
All the nice things I do each day would be so much sweeter and so much gayer if you were with me. I find myself saying a hundred times a day, ‘If Slim could only see that’ or ‘I wish Slim could hear this.’ I want to make a new life with you – I want all the friends I’ve lost to meet you and know you and love you as I do – and live again with you, for the past years have been terribly tough, damn near drove me crazy. You’ll soon be here, Baby, and when you come you’ll bring everything that’s important to me in this world with you.
