The Beauty of a Woman….

When she was asked to reveal her beauty secrets, actress Audrey Hepburn quoted this poem, which was read at her funeral:

To have attractive lips, pronounce words of kindness.

To have beautiful eyes, look at what beautiful people have in them.

To stay thin, share your meals with those who are hungry.

To have beautiful hair, let a child pass his hand every day in it.

To have a beautiful maintenance, walk knowing that you are never alone, because those who love you and loved you accompany you.

People, more than objects, need to be repaired, tended, revived, claimed and saved; never reject anyone.

Think about it; if one day you need a hand helping, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.

As you get older, you will realize that you have two hands, one to help yourself, the other to help those who need it.

The Beauty of a Woman is not in the clothes she wears, her face or her way of fixing her hair. The Beauty of a Woman is seen in her eyes, for it is the open door on her heart, the source of her love.

The Beauty of a Woman is not in her makeup, but in the true beauty of her soul. It is the tenderness that she gives, love, passion that expresses and gives cadence to her Beauty.

  1. I understood that she did not write these words but claimed them as her favourite πŸ™‚

    Audrey Hepburn was also a carrier for the Belgian Underground Anti-Nazi Movement in World War II when she was only a teenager like most Dutch children.

  2. All said and done about the virtues what one should possess with the possessions.
    But still why women tend to do make up, do hair styling, dress gorgeously, jewellery on body, stylish footwear and so on?
    See Kamal the same thing cannot be done as much by Men isn’t? Woman is symbol of attraction. She looks good, no she looks best in all the above I have mentioned. Not only Audrey Hepburn most celebrities have kind heart and good in behaviour. Many women I have seen who are pure in heart and action look much more Beautiful with all outer upgradation.
    Nice!

    1. Yes i completely agree with you and that is a Woman who likes to show her outward beauty to men too. And yes, Shiva there are many, many women who possess such good qualities of kindness and generosity in their life and they also take it to the masses. Thanks once again for these lovely words.
