Beauty Tips

This was immortalized by Audrey Hepburn

Something to think on in this world of superficial beauty.

"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 or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; Never throw out anybody.
Remember: If you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands: one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!"

I carry a torch for Audrey Hepburn, a truly iconic woman. I have read internet posts by her son by Mel Ferrer. I have just read that Hepburn was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.<br />
<br />
Even though I grew up in the 1960s, I had never heard of Sam Levenson before your post.<br />

That is an awesome and profoundly true quote. But how are Audrey Hepburn and Sam Levenson connected to it?

I believe she quoted it, people ascribed it to her b/c she was who she was; but Sam Levenson actually penned it.

Stands and applauds this wonderful post!
