“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 is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.” Audrey Hepburn
My Quote Challenge just wouldn’t have been complete if I hadn’t quoted this magnificent creature. She has always been an inspiration to me and now more so as I get older. She teaches me poise, grace and kindness…to others but most importantly to myself. We are so obsessed with appearances and keeping up with the superficiality thrown at us on a daily basis, that we forget how good it is to be simple, to be free and to be yourself. I look forward to the lines that will crease my face. I look forward to the way my eyes will soften with sags. I look forward to how age will spill across my skin and tell me stories of how I have lived and loved. Time is just something that lets you grow in to yourself. That lets you mature and beautify. The most important aspects of a person cannot be seen…and I hope you’ll remember that when you’re about to judge, or choose, or stereotype.
