 Yom Kippur 5762: Audrey’s Beauty Tips

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in others.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his fingers through it once a day.
For a poise, walk with the knowledge that you’ll never walk alone.

People, even more than things, have to be
restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed,
redeemed and redeemed and redeemed.
As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands,
one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

=== Audrey's Beauty Tips info ===

written by Sam Levenson

Posted October 1999 www.wowzone.com/audrey.htm

Contrary to what some may think, Audrey Hepburn did not write this beautiful poem, Sam Levenson did. Levenson wrote "Time Tested Beauty Tips" for his grandchild, and it just so happened to be one of Audrey's favorite poems. She read it to her children on the very last Christmas Eve she spent with us here on Earth.

Special thanks to Nicholas Darrell for author information.

===== and =====

I [suspected] that the Beauty Tips were not really from Audrey Hepburn. Fortunately, a reader wrote in with the following news: "The first 3 paragraphs of "Beauty Tips" were written, not by Audrey Hepburn, but by the late humorist Sam Levenson. They can be found in his book, In One Era & Out the Other, on pages 176 and 190 of the hardcover edition." It seems that Audrey Hepburn actually quoted Sam Levenson ... and then Sam Levenson evidently got edited out in the editions being sent around the internet ...
