Thought For The Day: Audrey Hepburn’s Words

I adored Audrey Hepburn. I loved her in every movie she was in, and even in her final years, I thought she was the epitome of grace, beauty and womanhood.  In a pixie cut or in the long hair of the later 60s, she was always stunning.

I still remember as a child, seeing Breakfast at Tiffany’s for the first time.  Whether she was wearing pigtails, or a glamourous updo, I remember being fascinated by her hair in that film.  I was thinking about her today, and I remembered reading this quote several years ago.

I read it again today, and I want to share it with you.  Really think about the words, and I hope it strikes a chord with you, as it does with me.

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others;
for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness;
and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”

I’ll let you ponder this, as I wish you all a wonderful weekend.


  1. I love her acting too. Very wise words, thanks for sharing them.

  2. What an awesome quote, my friend. I could never see you as anything but walking in her graceful and elegant and humble footsteps. It is what I've always seen in you.

  3. I love that poem and have part of it as my siggy at LHC. It is by Sam Levenson, and you can read the whole poem here:

  4. I was happy to share the lovely quote, SchnauzerMom.

    Autumnleaves, you are so sweet. Thank you.

    Hairstorm, it's so wonderful to have read that poem! I knew that Ms. Hepburn was quoting from somewhere, but I did not know the poem. Usually I google these things, but this time I dropped the ball. Thank you so much for sharing this! :)


I love hearing from you.
