"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 beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone."
- Audrey Hepburn

"Believe that you are far more wonderful than you ever dared to imagine. . . . because you are.
Believe that you can be more than you have ever dreamed of . . . . because you can.
Believe that you have more courage than you can see. . . . because you do.
Believe that you are stronger than your fears have allowed you know. . . . because you are.
Believe that you can love more fully than you ever thought. . . because you are able to.
Believe that you are truly more unique and special than you have ever allowed yourself to acknowledge...because you really are.
Believe it . . . if it's the last thing you do.
Believe it. . . because its true." - Sue Mitchel
