Audrey Hepburn is timeless a role model, not as a fashion icon, but as a humanitarian. Her work with UNICEF is what I prefer to remember her by, and how she has inspired me personally. Beautiful inside and out.

The Fourteen Precepts of Engaged Buddhism ~ Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh...... He inspires me to be a better person
Thich Nhat Hanh is an amazing Vietnamese-born Buddhist monk, teacher, author, and peace and social justice activist who helped originate the "Engaged Buddhism" movement. Meditate on his quote: “To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh
Thích Nhất Hạnh (b 1926) Vietnam. Zen Buddhist monk, teacher, poet, world peace activist, university founder, professor, author 100+ books. Leader “engaged Buddhism.” Founding abbot: Plum Village (France) monastery lay center. Grad student Princeton, Instructor Columbia U. Fluent: Vietnamese, French, English, Chinese, Japanese, Sanskrit, Pali. Inspired ML King to join Civil Rights movement to anti-Vietnam war peace movement. Nominated by Dr. King for Nobel Peace Prize.
"There is a misconception that Buddhism is a religion and that you worship Buddha. Buddhism is a practice, like yoga, you can be a Christian and practice Buddhism. I met a Catholic Priest who lives in a Buddhist monastery in France. He told me that Buddhism makes him a better Christian" Thich Nhat Hanh Embracing spiritual practices has enhanced my catholic faith so I truly agree!
Thich Nhat Hanh is a Vietnamese monk in the Zen tradition. He is now internationally known for his teaching and writing on mindfulness, and for his work related to “socially engaged Buddhism,” a call to social action based on Buddhist principles.

i dont think "skinny" is as important as HEALTHY. i wish the girls that complain about how the "skinny" girls are always called pretty, but their size 22 bodies are "beautiful" too... would realize that its not about being skinny. or being pretty for society. its about being HEALTHY. and 99% of the time, healthy is considerably thin.... just sayin.

Adele. Skinny isn't the only pretty. What are your thoughts and perceptions of what comprises beauty? How does that influence how you see people and yourself? How do collective views influence yours?

Irena Sendler (Al Gore was presented the Nobel Peace Prize over this amazing woman?! The Norwegian Nobel Committee should be ashamed...)
An amazing story of a true hero. She was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, but Al Gore was selected??
Remember this lady? I didn't either - Originally posted on Diasp.org An amazing woman who saved over 2500 infants and children during WWII in the Warsaw Ghetto in Poland. She eventually was captured and tortured and miraculously got out when she was scheduled for execution! She missed getting the Nobel Peace Prize 'by that much' in 2007. The year that Al Gore received it. She died in 2008.
Irena Sendler - A true hero Al Gore won Nobel peace prize over her???? Makes me sick!
Remember this lady? Really, Al Gore won the nobel peace prize over this woman? Who was on that committee. Read this, it is truly amazing and inspiring what one person is willing to do and can do.
"One of my favorite phobias is that girls, especially those whose tastes aren't routine, often don't get a fair break. It has come down through the generations, an inheritance of age-old customs which produced the corollary that women are bred to timidity." -- Amelia Earhart

Inspirational Hero: Amelia Earhart Earhart was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She was also a member of the National Woman's Party, and an early supporter of the Equal Rights Amendment. Earhart's accomplishments in aviation inspired a generation of female aviators, Earhart would never have accepted the notion that women we’re able to perform at the same aptitude that men are. #inspirationalheroes #wellineux #ameliaearhart

Art Bob Marley forever-rock-n-roll
Bob Marley, 36 — Died May 11, 1981: Reggae legend Bob Marley was diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer in his right big toe in 1977, and his doctor recommended that he amputate the appendage. However, Marley reportedly refused, citing religious beliefs that the body should remain whole, and only part of the toe was removed. Four years later, while on tour in New York, Marley collapsed in Central Park.

Always make the audience suffer as much as possible -Alfred Hitchcock
Ara Güler ~Alfred Hitchcock, 1974 Our meeting was to be in his office at Universal Studios in Los Angeles, with all the normal precautions and rules. Hitchcock was very imposing. From the start, he was silent and reserved, no doubt thinking: why do I have to waste my time with a Turkish photographer? Nonetheless, he soon changed his mind and joined the fun. For the two whole hours the old elephant struck poses, mimed and looked for props to spice up the decor. Hitchcock directed himself, crossed my field of view, thought up a new composition and dreamt up apparitions of himself, like those that were obligatory in his films. A silent film, as it turned out, as we exchanged barely a word. Everything was in gestures and looks. He understood and I understood - something I have never had with another subject. - Ara Guler

Audrey Hepburn was the granddaughter of a baron, the daughter of a nazi sympathizer, spent her teens doing ballet to secretly raise money for the dutch resistance against the nazis, and spent her post-film career as a goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, winning the presidential medal of freedom for her efforts. …And history remembers her as pretty.

Words of wisdom :)
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. Steve Jobs
