Today would have been Audrey Hepburn's 86th birthday. To celebrate, we've collected 10 of the forward-thinking movie and fashion icon's most inspirational quotes:
"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."
"Opportunities don’t often come along. So, when they do, you have to grab them."
"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."
"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."
"As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands: one for helping yourself, the other for helping others."
"People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone."
"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."
"You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him."
"There is more to feminine charm than just measurements. I don’t need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much femininity, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain."
"If my world were to cave in tomorrow, I would look back on all the pleasures, excitements and worthwhilenesses I have been lucky enough to have had. Not the sadness, not my miscarriages or my father leaving home, but the joy of everything else. It will have been enough."
