Audrey Hepburn

Years ago a wonderful poem was written by Audrey Hepburn when she was asked to share her "beauty tips". So many of us adore Ms. Hepburn for her style, but her heart shows that we were attracted to her for much more. Many years later, these words were read at her funeral. Let them be an inspiration to you and help you become an ambassador for change.

For attractive lips, speak words of kindess.
For lovely eyes, see out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For poise, walk with 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.
