"A fashion editor had asked Audrey Hepburn for beauty tips and she'd written back:

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you will never walk alone.
If you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of each of your arms.

This homily, a sort of St. Francis Prayer for the Maybelline Set, is a graceful rebuttal to the fetish of self-improvement. Instead of being all about me, it's about us; instead of getting and having, it's all about giving and then giving some more."
