I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it.
She held herself very straight, like Audrey Hepburn, whom all women idolize and men never think about.
It’s that wonderful old-fashioned idea that others come first and you come second. This was the whole ethic by which I was brought up. Others matter more than you do, so ‘don’t fuss, dear; get on with it’.
I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it.—-Audrey Hepburn
