quote of the week

How to be beautiful:

"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 or her 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 is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. 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 only grows with passing years."
Audrey Hepburn.


  1. Audrey Hepburn was a woman of class and intelligence.

  2. I agree with every word that Audrey Hepburn said in this quote.
    She was a very special lady and a wonderful actress and philanthropist especially for raising the awareness of children in need.

  4. That is very beautiful, Marja! And so true. Thank you for your comment. Yes, my father-in-law was a very important man, but very kind and interested in everything we did. He met many judges and lawyers from all over the world and he often met the Queen and Prince Bernhard. I didn't know this until I married my husband, who had an ordinary job at an office.

  5. Beautiful photo and wise words.

    She was a beautiful woman, Audrey Hepburn (so I'm inclined to think: easy for her to say ;-))

  6. So true!
    I'll send it straight away to my best girlfriend!
