[Backtranslated by Pascal from French, I don't have the original text.]
Audrey Hepburn, interviewed by William Holden, was asked about her beauty secrets. This is what she said:
To have beautiful eyes, look for generous people.
To be serene, walk knowing you never walk alone.
People, even more than things, need to be restored, revived, salvaged and forgiven; never reject somebody.
Remember, if you need a helping hand, there's one at the end of each of your arms. While you grow up, you'll come to realize that you have two hands, one to help you, and one to help others.
A woman's beauty is not in the clothes she wears, her silhouette or the way she does her hair. A woman's beauty must show through her eyes, for they are the door leading to her heart, where love resides.
A woman's beauty is not in the prettiness of the face, for the true beauty of a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the care she gives with love, the passion she displays.
