Audrey was not only graceful and charming while on stage, she was also a big humanitarian and made huge amounts of contribution to make a whole world a better place to live and to relieve the world of suffering. A truly inspirational person! And of course the things that world will always remember her by , except movies of course, are her famous quotes. So our subject today is best of Audrey Hepburn quotes! 🙂
She lived in Holland while Holland was still under nazzi occupation. As a young girl she witnessed two of her relatives being shot for their activity in the Resistance moment. And yet she wasn’t scared by this, she kept carrying messages for the members of Resistance hidden in her shoes.
After the war was over Audrey moved to London to pursue her passion for dance. Not long after that she started doing some modelling and acting work. Soon she was noticed by Colette for her performance. Colette was a famous French writer, author of novella “Gigi”. And she got the main role for the production of Gigi. The funny thing is that Audrey was actually perused into taking this role. Colette noticed her and insisted that Audrey was the right person for that role. And that’s how this huge movie star was born!
After Gigi was completed, her next destination was Rome and the part in the film Roman Holiday. After this movie was aired in United States everyone fell in love with Audrey. People liked her good looks and charisma, and she became one of the most loved female actress.
Every next movie was even a bigger success for Audrey. She became a role model for a lot of young girls and truly a legend in cinema circles. A true movie star was born.
Before we go on to Audrey Hepburn quotes I would like to say that besides quotations from her personal life we will be sharing some wise words from her movies. So we’ll also have some of Breakfast at Tiffany’s quotes and more. Have fun! 🙂
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others
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.
Everything I learned I learned from the movies
For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone

I never think of myself as an icon. What is in other people’s minds is not in my mind. I just do my thing
I never thought I’d land in pictures with a face like mine
I probably hold the distinction of being one movie star who, by all laws of logic, should never have made it. At each stage of my career, I lacked the experience

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
I’m half-Irish, half-Dutch, and I was born in Belgium. If I was a dog, I’d be in a hell of a mess
It’s that wonderful old-fashioned idea that others come first and you come second. This was the whole ethic by which I was brought up. Others matter more than you do, so ‘don’t fuss, dear; get on with it.
Let’s face it, a nice creamy chocolate cake does a lot for a lot of people. it does for me
Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering – because you can’t take it in all at once
Paris is always a good idea
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
Pick the day. Enjoy it – to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come… The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present – and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it’s at the end of your arm, as you get older, remember you have another hand. The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others

Success is like reaching an important birthday and finding you’re exactly the same
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows
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 must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides
The most important thing is to enjoy your life – to be happy – it’s all that matters
There are certain shades of limelight that can wreck a girl’s complexion
There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I don’t need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex appeal, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain
When you have nobody you can make a cup of tea for, when nobody needs you, that’s when I think life is over
