Time Tested Beauty Tips

(foto: Audrey Hepburn în Sabrina)

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'll 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.

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 must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

(Sam Levenson)

Sam Levenson, scriitor şi jurnalist american, a scris acest poem pentru nepotul său.
Lui Audrey Hepburn îi plăcea să îl citească celor doi fii, Sean şi Luca.

În plus, câteva citate din Sam Levenson care m-au făcut să zâmbesc:

If you want to know how your girl will treat you after marriage, just listen to her talking to her little brother.

You must learn from the mistakes of others. You can't possibly live long enough to make them all yourself.

Just try to be happy. Unhappiness starts with wanting to be happier.

It's so simple to be wise. Just think of something stupid to say and say the opposite.

I'm going to stop putting things off, starting tomorrow!

abia acum am citit. foarte adevarat si naiv in acelasi timp :)
din pacate trucurile de frumusete nu prea mai sunt valabile in zilele noastre, mai exact canoanele s-au cam schimbat.

@coryamor: sunt versuri scrise in secolul XX, noi suntem in secolul XXI. Din punctul acesta de vedere, sunt desuete :)
Canoanele de frumusete fizica se schimba, ce-i drept, insa eu cred ca exista multi oameni care "aplica", inconstient poate, aceste "time tested beauty tips". si tot atat de multi care cred in ele.

Si daca nu am frate? apropos de unul din citatele tale:) anyway, care este numele tau? sa stiu cui ma adresez...tomorrow este asa de impersonal, am impresia ca vorbesc cu ziua de miine de una singura...te-am trecut si eu in lista de blogs si mi-ar placea sa o personalizez cu numele tau real(sau ma rog, unul fictiv, dar sa sune a nume:) lectura placuta in continuare, fascinata de carti cum esti!!!

@ina: oricum, tu esti unica, indiferent daca ai sau nu frate/sora :). Pai daca pseudonimul meu e tomorrow, nu are rost sa imi mai aleg un nume fictiv, nu? Nu e impersonal, suna asa, a viitor :) Multam pentru lista de bloguri.
