Blue Box Girl

If I had just a whisper of Audrey's charm, a mere thread of her style, and a simple taste of her optimism, I would be a better woman, a million times over.

And you can quote me on that.

"On the one hand maybe I’ve remained infantile, while on the other I matured quickly, because at a young age I was very aware of suffering and fear."

"If I’m honest I have to tell you I still read fairy-tales and I like them best of all."

"Everything I learned I learned from the movies."

"Happy girls are the prettiest"

"Make-up can only make you look pretty on the outside but it doesn't help if you're ugly on the inside. Unless you eat the make-up."

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

"I have to be alone very often. I'd be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That's how I refuel."

"I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles."

"Paris is always a good idea."

"True friends are families which you can select."

"Success is like reaching an important birthday and finding you're exactly the same."

"I have learned how to live, how to be in the world and of the world,and not just to stand aside and watch. And I will never never again run away from life. Or from love, either"

"As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, the other for helping others."

Happy girls are the prettiest... I couldn't agree more!
p.s. here's my favorite saying: 'Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.' Unknown author

I wish I could be as lovely as her!

StyleIDnet said...

I love her vision and perspective of life. I agree that laugh is one, if not the most important thing in life.
I love to read her quote about make up making you only prettier on the outside.
I wished I would have payed more attention to people telling me that on my teenage years.

What I wouldn't do for legs like Audrey's...

Mouthwash said...

These are such wonderful up-lifting quotes!
I love her. Didn't she own a pet deer or something? So freaking cool. I think I watched a bio on her, and I was blown away by her early childhood and everything she experienced. Quite remarkable.

Thank you so much for my birthday wishes!

Movies on my Mind said...

These are such lovely quotes. She seems so wise, like wise beyond her years. I've always thought of myself as an old soul in a young body. I think Audrey and I would've made a great couple.

Sherin said...
