Audrey Hepburn is one of my all-time favourite actresses. No surprise I guess, because My Fair Lady is one of my all-time favourite movies. I appreciated her style, her grace and that adorable way she had about her.
She wrote a poem of “beauty tips” that was read at her funeral. It’s too good not to share:
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands;
One for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.
Thank you Audrey.
