I recently discovered that one of my favorite Audrey Hepburn quotes actually isn't from Audrey, but from Sam Levenson. As I read the entire poem, I was struck by how beautiful it is -- it's part of a letter that Levenson wrote for his granddaughter, and it is timeless.
I understand why Audrey loved it so much. I've included a clip of Audrey reading it at the end. have a wonderful weekend.
TIME-TESTED BEAUTY TIPS
by Sam Levenson (as read by Audrey Hepburn)
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 fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you'll never walk alone.
We leave you a tradition with a future.
The tender loving care of human beings will never be obsolete.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed and redeemed 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.
Your good old days are still ahead of you, may you have many of them.
