More Good Words To Live By

This came to me in an email. It's supposed to be by Audrey Hepburn, in response to being asked her beauty tips. Whether this is true or not, the sentiment is worth repeating.

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. 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.

  1. I am going to have to start printing these out and putting them on the fridge!

    Right now I have several quotes on the fridge.

    My current favorite is, "He who knows patience knows peace."

    -Chinese proverb

  2. Patience is something I have always struggled with.

I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
