cross my heart and kiss my elbows

if you love Audrey Hepburn raise your well maincured hand. I do I do. The poem below, should inspire us. I will it to be our daily mantra. Meet me at Tiffanys.




Audrey Hepburn: The Fairest Lady "Time Test Beauty Tips":

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 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 and redeemed 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.'
- Sam Levenson

Contrary to what some may think, Audrey did not write this beautiful poem , Sam Levenson did. Levenson wrote 'Time Tested Beauty Tips' for his grandchild, and it just so happened to be one of Audrey's favorite poems. She read it to her children on the very last Christmas Eve she spent with us here on Earth. "
