Audrey Hepburn was most famour for her iconic look in films such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s or Roman Holiday. She wasn’t just an actress, she was also a humanitarian who spent the latter part of her life helping underprivileged children and mothers across the globe through UNICEF.
Throughout her career she was one of the most beautiful actresses of her time and had a personality to match. Here are five things were learnt from Hepburn.
“I believe, every day, you should have at least one exquisite moment.”
Life is too short for us all to sit back and worry about what’s going to happen. Instead we should strive to achieve at least one great thing each day that we can be proud off. This could be simply getting out of bed for the first time or finally talking to that person you like, but being brave and achieving something.
“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.”
To plan for the future such as planting a small seed or getting your clothes ready for the next day is a great step in believing in the future.
“Make-up can only make you look pretty on the outside but it doesn’t help if your ugly on the inside. Unless you eat the make-up.”
Being pretty doesn’t make you a good person. If you’re ugly on the inside then people will be able to see straight through it and see you for the truly ugly person you are.
“Dress like you are already famous.”
I adore this one and completely agree with it. Dress like you are already a star and that you are already successful. Dress for your dream job and you can achieve it.
“People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.”
People can change and sometimes a second chance is worth it. Never throw anyone away (unless they are truly ugly inside).
