Audrey Hepburn is someone I have always admired. She was immensely beautiful, kind, and simply stated, a timeless woman. Hepburn didn't find her value in men… she didn't even think she was beautiful. These quotes, that I love, demonstrate what she believed:

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure she carries or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. 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 only grows with passing years.”

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

Hepburn was gentle, thoughtful, and loved people. I also admire that there was great value in building others up instead of tearing each other down. I find myself wishing more present day women would set aside petty gossip, or slander and instead, take on Hepburn's point of view. Women can be very competitive and often become very insecure by other women who may be more fit, successful, etc.

Why do we do this to ourselves and to each other? We as women should rally around each other in the good and the bad times. This is something I, as well, need to think about.
