Audrey Hepburn had a notably positive outlook on life.

At times I reflect on Audrey Hepburn’s thoughts on life inasmuch as she was an optimistic lady with a beautiful soul who lived an amazing and rewarding life. At times when I am less than confident or feeling discouraged, several of her musings will remind me of the beauty of life and restore the joy in living it contentedly. Following are a myriad of my favorite Audrey Hepburn quotes.

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!”

“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.”

“Pick the day. Enjoy it – to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come… The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present – and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.”

“I’ve been lucky. Opportunities don’t often come along. So, when they do, you have to grab them.”

“I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it.”

“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.”

“There is one difference between a long life and a great dinner; in the dinner, the sweet things come last.”

“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 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’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”

“A woman can be beautiful as well as intellectual.”

“Make-up can only make you look pretty on the outside but it doesn’t help if you’re ugly on the inside. Unless you eat the make-up.”

“There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I don’t need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex appeal, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain.”

“You can always tell what kind of a person a man really thinks you are by the earrings he gives you.”

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”

“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.”

“Let’s face it, a nice creamy chocolate cake does a lot for a lot of people; it does for me.”
