Isn’t She Lovely?

Not much to say about Audrey Hepburn that you probably don’t already know…she was amazing!!! So I will leave you with some of my favourite snaps of her instead.

Reading a letter from home.

With James Garner on the set of ‘The Children’s Hour’.

On the set of ‘My Fair Lady’.

The Audrey Hepburn rose.

She adored gardening and has a rose named after her.

A poem by Sam Levenson, that was a favourite of Audrey’s. Brilliant words of advice to live life by.

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 your 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!
