Nothing Is Impossible

28 Aug

When life kicks me in the teeth, there is nothing that will make me feel better more that pulling the curtains, getting under the covers and watching Roman Holiday, or Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I love Audrey Hepburn in a way that a child loves their favourite toy or first pet; I think of her fondly and she makes me smile. The coldest of souls couldn’t fail to be thawed by her, and her films are simply happy and touching.

But not only did Audrey Hepburn have a fantastic catalogue of feel good films, she was a firm believer in helping those less fortunate and worked tirelessly on behalf of UNICEF.

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
Audrey Hepburn

One of the world’s most famous actresses, Audrey Hepburn was introverted and liked to be by herself, a truly sophisticated woman who transcended the fashions of the era and exuded class.

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.
Audrey Hepburn

And I love her. I believe in a world of Katie Price’s and glamour models and people desperate for their five minutes of fame, Audrey Herburn should be a role model that more people aspire to. Sure, she might not still be alive but in her time she did more for the morale of young girls than any girl who strips down to her pants and models on page three under the guise of having something faintly ‘important’ to say about politics.

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.
Audrey Hepburn

I’ll leave you with a parting gift….

Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!
Audrey Hepburn

    I love those movies too!

    I sang song for Unicef in 1992 (there’s video on youtube of that) and she was still alive and she wanted to meet me when she comes to Belgrade.
    We were supposed to meat, and I was really excited but then someone called us to say she died. It was really sad. But it’s so great to know she knew who I was.
