Beauty isn’t just skin deep, regardless of what the entertainment industry tells you. And, there are all kinds of beauty–not just one society-determined standard.
Audrey Hepburn is famously connected to a beautiful poem called “Time Tested
Beauty Tips”, and while she’s often credited, the truth is that she was just especially fond of it.
The poem, which I will share with you below, was actually written by Sam Levenson, who wrote it for his grandchild.
Audrey Hepburn, a woman remembered for her remarkable physical beauty, reportedly read the poem to her own grandchildren on the last Christmas Eve of her life. As it turns out, Hepburn was. Besides her legendary acting career, she was a life-long humanitarian, a survivor of Nazi terrorists and more.
The poem says it all, I think. Please take a look, and share your thoughts in the comments section below.
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 or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; Never throw out anybody.
Remember, If you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!
