The following poem is quoted from “Audrey Hepburn” by Barry Paris, (c)1996 Putnam
She read it to children for inspiration
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 fingers through it once a day.
walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone…
People, even more than things,
have to be restored, renewed, revived,
reclaimed and redeemed 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.
