”I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it.”

Rest in Peace, Audrey Kathleen Ruston aka Audrey Hepburn (May 4th, 1929 - January 20th, 1993)
“Audrey definitely had a good heart, there was nothing mean or petty - it’s a character thing. She had a good character, so I think people picked up on that too. She didn’t have any of the backstabbing, grasping, petty, gossipy personalities that you see in this business. I liked her a lot; in fact, I loved Audrey. It was easy to love her.” Gregory Peck
"She was the best that we could possibly be. She was perfectly charming and perfectly loving. She was a dream; she was the dream that you remember when you wake up smiling." Richard Dreyfuss
"My passion for her has lasted through four marriages - two of hers and two of mine." Stanley Donen.
"She was so gracious and grateful that everybody fell in love with her after five minutes. Everybody was in love with this girl, I included. My problem was that I am a guy who speaks in his sleep, I toss around and talk and talk… But fortunately, my wife’s first name is Audrey as well." Billy Wilder.
"I had the opportunity to see how deep her soul is, and its commitment to life… The love that the woman exuded was absolutely fathomless." Harry Belafonte.
"What is needed in order to really become a star is an extra element which God gives you or doesn’t give you. You’re born with it. you cannot learn it. God kissed Audrey Hepburn on the cheek and there she was." Billy Wilder
“In Breakfast at Tiffany’s, all of a sudden - because was Audrey who was doing it - living alone, going out, looking fabulous, and getting a little drunk didn’t look so bad anymore. Being single actually seemed shame-free. It seemed fun.”
