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.

Audrey Hepburn said this and I think it’s really important that we all remember that beauty is different for everyone as much as there’s a difference between physical beauty and a beautiful soul. Now I’ve met people who have both and people who have neither as well as those who have one or the other. But I think we as a whole expect that being beautiful means being appealing on the inside. That can be important and at the same time it can be irrelevant.
I love this quote a lot because it mixes the two in a few ways while encouraging us to make sure to look at the whole of a person before we judge certain sides. She tells us to look for the good in people because it takes more than one glance to know a person especially when people have their days where they aren’t themselves. It also reminds us that we are never alone because the greatest company we can keep is ourselves. While it can also be our worst, Audrey Hepburn reminds us that we have to believe in the ourselves, in our own good as much as those around us.
