Audrey Hepburn Advice

May 22, 2006
One of my friends sent me this poem that was a favorite of Audrey Hepburn, and it is really lovely.  My favorite movie, "Always," is Audrey’s last movie before she passed away.  She was truely a beautiful person all her life, and a wonderful role model.
 
 Time-Tested Beauty Tips

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 you’ll never walk alone … 

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.

Sam Levenson

"Time Tested Beauty Tips" by Sam Levenson–who was better known as a humorist than a poet–was one of Audrey Hepburn’s favorite poems. Mr. Levenson passed away on 27 August 1980 at the age of 68. It is often mistaken that Audrey wrote this beautiful poem herself. Of interest, according to one resource, "Audrey Hepburn read this poem to her children on the very last Christmas Eve she spent with us here on Earth," which is perhaps the best reason why these words are still remembered with Audrey today.
