Words To Inspire from Audrey Hepburn

Lately I’ve not felt myself at all and I’m unfortunately one of those people that both sees life sometimes with a glass half empty, and who bottles up feelings in my mind. I guess that’s why I never feel able to express myself very well on my blog, apart from the sugar coated frivolous world of beauty and fashion that I love to escape to! Well when I’m feeling a bit down I love to read quotes and sometimes just reading one completely alters my mood and makes me feel so much better. I thought it would be nice for a change to devote a blog post just to quotes from Audrey Hepburn one of my ultimate inspirations. I truly believe Audrey was one of the most enchanting, wonderful women that has ever lived, and of course apart from being totally beautiful on the outside, she also had the most beautiful heart and was so wise. I hope if you are having a bad day one of these quotes can help you out in some way like they do for me!

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!”

“The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it's all that matters.”

“If I’m honest I have to tell you I still read fairy-tales and I like them best of all.”

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”

“Your heart just breaks, that's all. But you can't judge or point fingers. You just have to be lucky enough to find someone who appreciates you.”

“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.”

“Pick the day. Enjoy it - to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come... The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present, and I don't want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.”

“Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it's at the end of your arm, as you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.”

“Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering - because you can't take it in all at once.”

“The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,but true beauty in a Woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows.”

“I have to be alone very often. I'd be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That's how I refuel."

“I heard a definition once: Happiness is health and a short memory! I wish I'd invented it, because it is very true.”

“Why change? Everyone has his own style. When you have found it, you should stick to it.”

“I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it.”

“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 or her fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.”

“It's that wonderful old-fashioned idea that others come first and you come second. This was the whole ethic by which I was brought up. Others matter more than you do, so 'don't fuss, dear; get on with it'.”

“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.”

“I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and... I believe in miracles.”

“Good things aren't supposed to just fall into your lap. God is very generous, but he expects you to do your part first.”

“My life isn’t theories and formulae. It’s part instinct, part common sense. Logic is as good a word as any, and I’ve absorbed what logic I have from everything and everyone… from my mother, from training as a ballet dancer, from Vogue magazine, from the laws of life and health and nature.”

“Since the world has existed, there has been injustice. But it is one world, the more so as it becomes smaller, more accessible. There is just no question that there is more obligation that those who have should give to those who have nothing.”

“I have learnt how to live, how to be In the world and Of the world,and not just to stand aside and watch. And I will never never again run away from life. Or from love, either”

“You can even say that I hated myself at certain periods. I was too fat, or maybe too tall, or maybe just plain too ugly ... you can say my definiteness stems from underlying feelings of insecurity and inferiority. I couldn't conquer these feelings by acting indecisive. I found the only way to get the better of them was by adopting a forceful, concentrated drive.”
