Audrey Hepburn pulls a funny face

Audrey Hepburn

 You know by now that I am a huge fan of Audrey Hepburn’s.  Her philanthropy (she worked for UNICEF for 38 years!), uniqueness, laughter (she believed that it was a calorie burner!), and style never cease to amaze and inspire me. She didn’t go for trends or try to reinvent herself each season.  She was – and somehow continues to be – timeless! One thing that we share in common is the need to be alone.  She once said, “I have to be alone very often. I’d be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That’s how I refuel.” I couldn’t agree more.  After the year that I have had, I relish each and every moment that I can be all.by.myself. Anyhoo, I thought I’d take the time to share some of my favorite Audrey images. Her smile and laugh are utterly and magnificently contagious!

“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 their fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. 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.And the beauty of a woman, with passing years only grows!”

“I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles”

“People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.”

“Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering – because you can’t take it in all at once.”

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”

“The most important thing is to enjoy your life – to be happy – it’s all that matters.”

“You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him.”

“There is more to feminine charm than just measurements. I don’t need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much femininity, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain.”

“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.”
