Audrey Hepburn Part One

Audrey Hepburn has to be one of my favorite actresses of all time. But not for obvious reasons such as her acting, style and elegance. My next blog will elucidate further.

In my debut Romcom novel ‘Tara Tree’, one of Tara’s housemates pulls a spliff from his pink shorts whilst they are all watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Breakfast at Spliffanees? He asks everyone before firing up the big boy and laughing at his wit. He then goes on to say

And it would be Breakfast at Riffaney’s if I played my guitar. At this point, everyone tells him to shut up whilst a few sofa pillows fly in his direction.

Here is a TikTok of the magnificent Audrey Hepburn

I recently watched a documentary about her life; many of her peers marveled at her ability to transmute trauma into love. She was a young girl living in the Netherlands during the second world war and scrounging for food. She always said that these memories made her grateful every day for what she had.

The following are my favorite Audrey Hepburn quotes.


Why can’t politics be humanized?


 For me, the only things of interest are those linked to the heart.


Elegance is the only beauty that never fades.

Nothing is impossible. The word itself says I’m possible.


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.


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


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, and the second is to help others.


 Giving is living. If you stop wanting to give, there’s nothing more to live for.


I believe, every day, you should have at least one exquisite moment.


I am off to watch Breakfast at Tiffany’s.


All the best
