Audrey Hepburn

For attractive lips, speak kind words

For adorable eyes, seek the good in each person

For a slender figure, share your food with the hungry

For gorgeous hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day

To have good appearance, walk knowing that you will never be alone

To have delicate hands, applaud the success of others

To have firm arms, help someone that has fallen to stand and face life, again

For bright teeth, smile to all that pass your way

To have elegance, treat others as equals, without regard to importance, power, social position or money in the bank

To sleep better, be satisfied with what you are and what you have

For blood pressure, love God and your fellowman as you love yourself
