So, to remind ourselves of just how inspiring she was, both on the screen or in reality, here are 10 phrases from the Glamorous actress:

1. “I am good, but not an angel. I do sin, but I am not the devil”

2. “Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right.

3. “Millions of people live their entire lives without finding themselves. But it is something I must do”

4. “I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I’m out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you don’t deserve me at my best.”

5.“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”

6. “The real lover is the man who can thrill you just by touching your head or smiling into your eyes — or just by staring into space”

7. “Success makes so many people hate you. I wish it wasn’t that way. It would be wonderful to enjoy success without seeing envy in the eyes of those around you.

8. “Fear is stupid. So are regrets.”

9. “Keep smiling, because life is a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”

10. “I live to succeed, not to please you or anyone else.”
