It's been 25 years since this world lost Audrey Hepburn..  But her legacy has endured long after her death.

Beyond a film and fashion icon, Audrey Hepburn was a humanitarian who spent the latter part of her life working with UNICEF, helping underpriveleged children and mothers across the globe.

Today, in honour of this amazing woman, on what would have been her 89th birthday, the team at Nesaa would like to share our ten favourite quotes from this amazingly articulate and intelligent soul.

#10.

“Not to live for the day, that would be materialistic — but to treasure the day. I realize that most of us live on the skin — on the surface — without appreciating just how wonderful it is simply to be alive at all.”

#9.

“I believe, every day, you should have at least one exquisite moment.”

Oooh, snakeskin!  Exquisite enough for you?!  I think having this bag in your life counts as a pretty exquisite moment!  Make it happen... 

#8.

“People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.”

#7.

“Giving is living. If you stop wanting to give, there’s nothing more to live for.”

#6.

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!”

#5.

“My greatest ambition is to have a career without becoming a career woman.”

#4.

“There are more important things than outward appearance. No amount of makeup can cover an ugly personality.”

So, true.  But a bag with this much personality and beauty -- what can it do for you?!

#3.

“Good things aren’t supposed to just fall into your lap. God is very generous, but He expects you to do your part first.” 

#2.

“The ‘Third World’ is a term I don’t like very much, because we’re all one world. I want people to know that the largest part of humanity is suffering.”

 #1.

“They say love is the best investment; the more you give, the more you get in return.”

  

Loving you all!

Soph.. xo
