A Nicer Place  

Wednesday, 5 November 2008

A good friend sent me an e-mail yesterday, this was part of that e-mail and it touched me.

This is a poem written by the beautiful Audrey Hepburn, it was read out at her funeral, I thought I’d share it with you.

“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/her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.”

Perhaps if we all tried to live life in this vein, the world would be a much nicer place.
