Fresh as a Daisy: Beauty Tips, by Audrey Hepburn

May 3, 2008

  1. For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
  2. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
  3. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
  4. For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
  5. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you will never walk alone.
  6. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw anybody out. Remember if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of your arm. As you grow older, you discover that you have two hands- one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.
  7. The beauty in a woman is not in the clothes that she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. But 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 is the care that she loving gives, the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.

    Contrary to many internet postings and email-go-rounds, Audrey Hepburn didn’t write this lovely poem.

    Sam Levenson wrote “Time Tested Beauty Tips” for his grandchild, and it just so happened to become one of Audrey’s favorite poems. The poem was then mis-attributed to her, after it was known that she liked it and had read it to her children.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing that information- I had no idea that I claiming something that was not true! And it is a lovely poem.
