15 Classy Quotes From Audrey Hepburn That All Girls Need To Remember

15 Classy Quotes From Audrey Hepburn That All Girls Need To Remember

I have always admired Audrey Hepburn. It is not only her outer beauty but also her inner beauty that is the most attractive part of her. Even after so many years of her death, Audrey Hepburn is still considered to be one of the most admired celebrities of today.

Audrey Kathleen Ruston, more famously known as Audrey Hepburn, was born on May 04, 1929, in Ixelles, Brussels, Belgium. She was a British actress, and a humanitarian.

The first ever film she appeared was in 1948. That same year, she moved to London to pursue on her ballet career. She worked as a part time model as well as a chorus girl in the musical theaters. It was during one of her performances that a casting director noticed her, and registered her with the Associated British Picture Corporation. By 1951, Hepburn had appeared in minor roles in several movies, before she was cast in her first ever major supporting role.

Throughout her career, Audrey Hepburn gifted us with amazing movies such as “The Roman Holiday”, “Sabrina”, “War and Peace”, “My Fair Lady”, “Mary Poppins”, “Paris When it Sizzles”, “Charade”, and of course, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” It was the latter movie that made her a fashion icon. The “little black dress” is still an iconic dress made by Givenchy. Her beauty combined with her sense of fashion, and the way she carried herself, soon made her a well sought public figure. She is one of the 14 people in Hollywood who won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony Award. It was during her dazzling career that she was picked as the Goodwill Ambassador of UNICEF. In recognisation of her work, the then US President George W. Bush awarded her the “Presidential Medal of Freedom”.

Audrey Hepburn was married twice. Her first marriage was to Mel Ferrer (1954-1968), and the second was to Andrea Dotti (1969-1982). Later, Robert Wolders was her partner from 1980 to 1993, till her death.

Hepburn had a rare cancer, appendiceal cancer. Her cancer spread throughout her small intestine that it was impossible to operate and remove it. She was flown, on a flower-filled private jet sent by Givenchy, from Los Angeles to Geneva. It was there in her own home in Tolochenaz, Vaud, Switzerland that she died in her sleep. This was on the evening of 20 January, 1993.

Here are some classy quotes from this talented, beautiful human being that every girl needs to remember.

1. The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows.

2. Why change? Everyone has his own style. When you have found it, you should stick to it.

3. You can always tell what kind of a person a man really thinks you are by the earrings he gives you.

4. If I get married, I want to be very married.

5. The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.

6. Success is like reaching an important birthday and finding you are exactly the same.

7. If I am honest I have to tell you I still read fairy-tales and I like them best of all.

8. I am 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.

9. Make-up can only make you look pretty on the outside, but it doesn’t help if you are ugly on the inside. Unless you eat the make-up.

10. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

11. I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it is the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.

12. I don’t take my life seriously, but I do take what I do- in my life- seriously.

13. I have been lucky. Opportunities don’t come along. So, when they do, you have to grab them.

14. 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.

15. 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.

Science Says People Who Talk To Themselves Are Geniuses

Science Says People Who Talk To Themselves Are Geniuses

I talk a lot to myself. It helps me to keep my concentration on the activity on hand, makes me focus more on my studies, and gives me some pretty brilliant ideas while chattering to myself; more importantly, I produce better works. For example, right now, as I am typing, I am constantly mumbling to myself. Do you talk to yourself? Don’t get embarrassed admitting it because science has discovered that those who talk to themselves are actually geniuses… and not crazy!

Research Background

Psychologist-researcher Gary Lupyan conducted an experiment where 20 volunteers were shown objects, in a supermarket, and were asked to remember them. Half of them were told to repeat the objects, for example, banana, and the other half remained silent. In the end, the result shown that self-directed speech aided people to find the objects faster, by 50 to 100 milliseconds, compared to the silent ones.

“I’ll often mutter to myself when searching for something in the refrigerator or the supermarket shelves,” said Gary Lupyan.

This personal experience actually made him conduct this experiment. Lupyan, together with another psychologist, Daniel Swigley, came up with the outcomes that those to talk to oneself are geniuses. Here are the reasons:

It stimulates your memory

When you are talking to yourself, your sensory mechanism gets activated. It gets easier on your memory since you can visualize the word, and you can act accordingly.[1]

It helps stay focused

When you are saying it loud, you stay focused on your task,[2] and it helps you recognise that stuff immediately. Of course, this only helps if you know what the object you are searching looks like. For example, a banana is yellow in colour, and you know how a banana looks like. So when you are saying it loud, your brain immediately pictures the image on your mind. But if you don’t know what banana looks like, then there is no effect of saying it loud.

It helps you clarify your thoughts

Every one of us tends to have various types of thoughts. Most make sense, while the others don’t. Suppose you are furious at someone and you feel like killing that person. Now for this issue you won’t run to a therapist, will you? No, what you do is lock yourself in a room and mutter to yourself. You are letting go off the anger by talking to yourself, the pros and cons of killing that person, and eventually you calm down. This is a silly thought that you have and are unable to share it with any other person. Psychologist Linda Sapadin said,[3]

“It helps you clarify your thoughts, tend to what’s important and firm up any decisions you are contemplating.”
