I saw this on Stacy Julian’s blog just now and loved it, especially the first part. Aparently it was one of Audrey Hepburn’s favorite poems.
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 that 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.***Sam Levenson
