What is Beauty?

What is Beauty?

What does it take in our culture, I wonder, for a woman to feel beautiful?

Audrey Hepburn somehow managed to retain her ideal weight throughout her entire adult life — surely a magical feat that only a goddess could pull off!

After she retired as a ‘super-star’, she became a tireless volunteer and advocate for the suffering children of the world. View photographs and read the story of her life at:  Audrey Hepburn.

Audrey Hepburn read these words to her son on Christmas Eve 1992, a month before she died. The piece was read at her funeral to memorialize the meaning of her life. It was a fitting tribute to the goddess she was.

Time-Tested Beauty Tips
~by Sam Levenson

  • 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.

Beauty is as beauty does. Now that’s the real thing, Goddess-style!
