about the concepts of “KINDRED" and "Beauty"
has been hunted around the globe.
Reason was considered as rebellion.
And the slavery of fear made men afraid to think.
But such is the irresistible nature of truth that all it asks,
all it wants, is the liberty of appearing.
In such a situation, man becomes what he ought to be.
He sees his species not with the inhuman idea of a natural enemy.
He sees his species as kindred.”
Thomas Paine (1737-1809)
as quoted by Studs Terkel in the series “This I Believe” on
National Public Radio, October 2005
Time Tested Beauty
“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you’ll never walk alone.
The tender loving care of human beings will never become obsolete.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed,
revived, reclaimed and
redeemed and redeemed and redeemed.
Never throw out anybody.
And remember, if you ever need a helping hand,
you’ll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands :
one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
Your “good old days” are still ahead of you.
May you have many of them.”
Actress and Humanitarian Audrey Hepburn
