Audrey Hepburn Quotes That Are Eternally Relevant

Only recently have I come to discover Audrey Hepburn and I'm not sure how I didn't find her earlier. I've grown to have a great love for Audrey as an actress and as a woman of power. She's got a lot to say, so here are just a few quotes that describe our daily lives.

“Happy girls are the prettiest girls.”

It’s true. Whenever I see someone smiling and laughing, I see the beauty shining in their eyes and face. Whenever I’m smiling and laughing, I feel much better about myself and my appearance. Plus, if you’ve got enemies around - there’s no better way to upset them than to be happy and pretty.

“Life is a party, dress like it.”

If I could have someone’s closet, I’d love to have Audrey’s. Cute skirts with cute hats all day, everyday? Yes, I would love to live that party life everyday. Never leave the house not looking like a party, you never know who you’ll meet.

“A girl can’t read that sort of thing without her lipstick.”

This has to be one of my favorite quotes of all time. Think about it, when you’re reading those texts from that one silly boy, or you’re reading gossip - there’s no way you can read that without lipstick!

“We belong to nobody and nobody belongs to us.”

Oh, bless your heart Audrey.[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

“Anyone who ever gave you confidence, you owe them a lot.”

I never thought about my confidence in this way until now. I heart this line. If you really think about it, so much of our confidence has to come from others in some way, so at the end of the day, you really do owe them a lot, because you are who you are right now because of them.

“It’s a mistake you always make, trying to love a wild thing.”

I mean, I’d love Audrey regardless, but I think we can all relate to this one. Sometimes we feel like we’re not good enough for that one guy who decided to fall for us.

“I’ll never let anybody put me in a cage.”

Yes Audrey! Don’t be put in a cage. Audrey is the purest example of a strong and independent woman who doesn’t need to be put in a cage.

“If I get married, I want to be very married.”

I’m that girl who has been dreaming of her dream wedding and dream husband since I can remember. So, when I do get married, I really do want to be very married.

“If I’m honest, I have to tell you that I still read fairy-tales and I like them, best of all!”

Low key, I still love fairy tails. I think it’s OK to believe in fairy tales, even when you’re older. You’ve gotta believe in something, right?

“Suddenly you’re afraid and you don’t know what you’re afraid of.”

I think that we’ve all felt like this at some point in time. The overwhelming feeling that we’re afraid and anxious but it’s because of everything and nothing.

"One is never over-dressed or under-dressed in a little black dress."

Also, another favorite. I always question if I'm over-dressed if I leave the house in a dress. But, if Audrey says you're not, you're probably not over-dressed or under-dressed.

“I refuse to become what you call ‘normal.’”

This one hits the spot. I strive to be different, in a good way, from others. I never want to be just like everyone else. I want to be that strong and independent woman who was different.

If you need someone to look up to, Audrey Hepburn is your gal. Always remember, "Elegance is the beauty that never fades."

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
