It’s Audrey Hepburn’s birthday today. The iconic actress and humanitarian would have been 87 today. To me, she is the epitome of grace and beauty from within.
Here are six of her inspiring quotes that can be good reminders for us to live a fulfilling life.
1) Accept life unconditionally. Do not have any expectations.
“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.”
2) Have fun and laugh more.
“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.”
3) Seize the day. Do not live to regret.
“Opportunities don’t often come along. So, when they do, you have to grab them.”
4) Be in the moment. Be present.
“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.”
5) Practice self-love.
“Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it’s at the end of your arm, as you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.”
6) If you can dream it, you can do it!
“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!”
Happy birthday Audrey!
