Never Knew Exactly Why I Loved Audrey Hepburn Until Now

Below is a poem Audrey Hepburn wrote
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, even more than things, have to be restored,

renewed,revived, reclaimed, and redeemed;

never throw out anyone.
