PEOM * Time Tested Beauty Tips

Wonderful Peom by humorist and journalist Sam Levenson,
that was originally written for his grandchild.
The lengendary Audrey Hepburn loved it so much she made it her mantra,
including it in many of her lectures and talks as a UNICEF Ambassador.
The poem has since become more popularly known as
Audrey Hepburn's Secret to Great Beauty,
obviously reflecting how much she embodied the simple philosophies found within.
Time Tested Beauty Tips
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 in 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!
