Audrey Hepburn - 4 May 1929 – 20 January 1993 - was a British actress and Humanitarian.

"Beauty Secrets," by Sam Levenson
Often attributed to Audrey Hepburn
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.
For poise, 
walk with the knowledge you never walk alone.

Quotes about Audrey:

"After so many drive-in waitresses becoming movie stars, there has been this real drought, when along came class; somebody who actually went to school, can spell, maybe even plays the piano. She may be a wispy, thin little thing, but when you see that girl, you know you're really in the presence of something. In that league there's only ever been Garbo, and the other Hepburn, and maybe Bergman.  It's a rare quality, but boy, do you know when you've found it."  Director Billy Wilder

"I think that there are few people in one's life that you never really feel that they're gone. I have to remind myself that she isn't around." Blake Edwards
