“Time Tested Beauty Tips” by Sam Levenson

Sometimes in the work I do, I have to pause and think a little about what we have seen and what we have done. For example, upon viewing a photo of one of our staff members playing with children in Africa who were playing with her long hair, it reminded me of a poem I once read, which was also a favorite poem of Audrey Hepburn, and one she read to her children about true beauty. I hope you enjoy it. I have added it below. I have always been an admirer of Ms. Hepburn’s, particularly in her later years when she dedicated her life to humanitarian work with children.

  • 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 or her fingers through it once a day.
  • For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.
  • People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anybody.
  • Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of your arm.
  • As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
