“Nothing is impossible. The word itself says ‘I’m possible!'”
– Audrey Hepburn
We all have people we look up to growing up. Some may be those who we adore in real life such as our parents, our grandparents and/or our older siblings. The rest however, may include those who we may never had the pleasure of meeting, yet we aspire to become.
For me, and millions of girls and women around the globe, one of those role models is the formidable Ms. Audrey Hepburn. One of the world’s most influential film and fashion icons, she is far more than just a Hollywood celebrity or a pretty face.
Born in Belgium, what many don’t know about this famous British actress is her heart of gold. Having almost starved to death when she was residing in a Nazi-occupied Holland during World War II, she endured extremely difficult times years prior to her rise to fame.
Instead of letting her hardships harden her or made her bitter, she instead, became a deeply compassionate humanitarian. A UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, she dedicated much of her life tirelessly helping people – especially women & children – in the most world’s most disadvantaged countries.
A total girlboss, Ms. Hepburn truly embodied what it means to be beautiful inside and out. Though she has long passed away, her admirable legacy lives on.
With that, I’ve compiled some of her best words of wisdom to inspire all of us to create our best lives and to remember to always make time to help others along the way. Enjoy!

Hi! Thanks for stopping over & for taking the time to comment. I totally agree, she’s one of a kind! Happy to hear that you loved the quotes too!
I honestly use a lot of quotes of hers daily, she was a trailblazer for women of her time and I definitely look to her and how she lived her life to inspire me and to help me be a strong women! I absolutely adore her and have watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s at least once a month still and have for about 20 years now. It’s my favorite and it can always make me laugh and ground me at the same time time. Thanks for sharing I love seeing when others see what I see in tiny lady.
I share your adoration for Audrey Hepburn for sure! A friend even calls me ‘Audrey’ due to my ‘obsession’ lol. Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a classic, I’ve seen it multiple times but you definitely ‘beat’ me there as you’ve watched it each month for 20 years! haha. Kudos and have a lovely day! Keep channeling your ‘inner Audrey’ 🙂
