Marilyn Monroe on HiFi

Marilyn Monroe on HiFi

I was looking up Marilyn Monroe and chanced upon her quotes. With no editing, they apply to audiophiles!

On hifi advertisements, tall claims and swindlers:

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." (no edit)

On 90% of hifi:

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."

On why we should spend more money (aka 癡呆):

"We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets."

Her advice to audiophiles who believe in theories, rules and measurements:

"If I'd observed all the rules I'd never have got anywhere."
