Classic Sugar Baby Quotes from Women in the 1900s
Josephine Baker (1906 – 1975)
You must get an education. You must go to school, and you must learn to protect yourself. And you must learn to protect yourself with the pen, and not the gun.
Formal education is important, but so is self-education. A sugar daddy should help you achieve your dreams, not be your only dream. Use sugaring to help level up your life so you can live to work, not work to live.

Marilyn Monroe (1926 – 1962)
A woman knows by intuition, or instinct, what is best for herself.
Marilyn knew then what is still true of sugar dating now. What you feel in your heart what you are looking for in a sugar daddy is always right. And remember: if something seems too good to be true, it is.

Audrey Hepburn (1929 – 1993)
To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.
The most fruitful sugar relationships are the ones where you take the time to build trust and a genuine connection. When you do this, watch your allowance and opportunities grow.
