"As a child I was taught that it was bad manners to draw attention to yourself and make a spectacle of yourself.  I then went on to make a rather nice living doing just that—with a little help from the greatest directors, the best writers, the most fabulous stars, glorious photography, terrific scores, super clothes, and the best crews in the industry.  My job was to be on time and know my lines.  [Others] helped and honed, triggered and taught, pushed and pulled,…guided and nurtured a totally unknown, insecure, inexperienced, skinny broad into a marketable commodity.  I am proud to have been in a business that gives pleasure, creates beauty and awakens our conscience, arouses compassion and perhaps most importantly, gives millions a respite from our so violent world." - Audrey Hepburn

When I finally say I love you to any man and really mean it, it will be like a defeated general who’s lost all his troops, surrendering and handing his sword to the enemy. - War and Peace (1956)

I’ll never have an answer to what makes me special. I remember many years ago, my mother said to me, ‘Considering that you have no talent, it’s really extraordinary where you’ve got.’ and that’s what I really believe to this day. I’ve always been self-conscious about my interviews, about my thinness, my tallness, my unattractiveness. My success — it still bewilders me. I never in my wildest dreams ever thought that maybe I’d be a great star.” Audrey Hepburn
