Advice for an Elegant Life

This was what Audrey Hepburn wrote when asked for her beauty tips, it was later read at her funeral:

For attractive lips: speak worlds 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 though 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.

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.
