I've never fooled anyone. I've let people fool themselves. They didn't bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn't argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn't.

Marilyn Monroe
About This Quote

When someone creates an image of you that they don't know about or that is not true, you are being fooled. People are often fooled into thinking that the person they are friends with is something they are not. This happens because people have created an image of the person in their mind. They imagine what kind of person they would be if they met them and they have come to expect this person to act or look a certain way. People, however, do not always act the way they are expected to and as such, people who live in dreams will often be disappointed.
