I’m Deenise and I’m 25 this year. I was compelled to write a letter to you to tell you how much I was inspired by your lovely quotes on love, beauty and fashion reading about your uplifting quotes online which make me felt like I could stood firmly in my beliefs just like how you stood by to yours.
You are a fashion and beauty legendary icon even til today. Though both of us are in two different worlds, I felt that I could relate to your thoughts, beliefs and philosophy about life. What came as a surprise for me was the fact that both of us were born on the 4 of May. You were born in the year of 1929 right in Belgium and I, in the year of 1988 in Singapore. That’s 57 years apart. Even though times have changed, your classic style and graceful personality still remains in the hearts of many people. Your name has came to be synonymous with elegance.
Many have expressed their wishes and desires to look and be like you. I also had my admiration for your beauty, sophistication and gracefulness but I also understood that I could never be like you because there just can’t be a second Audrey Hepburn after you. Rather than to act and look like you, I figured that I could just learn from you and live by your quotes each so that I could become stronger, braver and kinder each day.
“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” – Audrey Hepburn
You’re a firm believer that inner beauty outshines outer beauty. The essence of a woman lies in cultivating the love for herself and others from within. The more she gives, the more she receives. And this is the message, I would like to pass on to all women – ‘ love to be loved.’
“I’m an introvert… I love being by myself, love being outdoors, love taking a long walk with my dogs and looking at the trees, flowers, the sky.” – Audrey Hepburn
