Below is a wonderful poem Audrey Hepburn wote when asked to share her 'beauty tips.' It was read at her funeral years later.
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/her 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.
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.
This was an email I received to send to all my beautiful woman friends, but EVERY WOMAN IS BEAUTIFUL, so this is for you.
Audrey Hepburn has always been my all-time favorite female celebrity.
Share this with another woman and you will boost another woman's self esteem, and she will know that you care about her.
Every person has a spark of divinity built into their very molecules which is compelled to make a major contribution. Like a blueprint you were born with, this unique gift works through you and is committed to lifting the suffering of others through the expression of a specific virtue. When you are living in alignment with your blueprint, invisible hands seem to assist your every effort.

If news is not really news unless it is bad news, it may be difficult to claim we are an informed nation. - Norman Cousins, editor of Saturday Review
"Give up the need to be more, better or different. Give up wanting to be like or liked by someone else."
