Happy Birthday Audrey :: A Legend turns 85


Had she been alive Ms. Hepburn would be celebrating her 85th Birthday today. A true legend in every sense of the word, her beauty was internal as well as external. Kind, compassionate and giving when she was not behind the camera she was helping others who were much less fortunate. While we know her for her numerous films such as Breakfast at Tiffany's, Roman Holiday, Funny Face and Sabrina, her role as a humanitarian was defined more clearly in her later years. She was the Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, a cause she was passionate about, where she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In her memory, and to keep her passion alive, Hepburn's two sons, Sean Ferrer and Luca Dotti, along with her former partner Robert Wolders, have set up the Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund on the Official Audrey Hepburn website. This fund continues to campaign for and help the children who need it most. 



"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."




"Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!"



"The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - it's all that matters."




"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."



"If I'm honest I have to tell you I still read fairy-tales and I like them best of all."




"As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others."

Happy Birthday to a true Legend whose beauty will never fade -
