Learning from Ms. Hepburn

If I could increase just two things in this world, just two, it would first be love and then be class. 

The reason we need more love is no mystery. It's nothing new or novel. I adore everything about the word, and that's that.

And I guess it could be said making a clarion call for class isn't original either. But it's my personal plea to the universe that we as people, especially ladies, learn from women like Audrey Hepburn and not Tila Tequila.



VS.


Audrey was known for her "anti diva" behavior. She never treated anyone like they were inferior to her. It's appalling how women pride themselves on being said "divas," and we won't even get into "princesses." A more interesting idea to toy with, is that being kind and gracious gives you more power.  No scandal, no rumor, no backstabbing can undermine elegance because you live above it.

I'd love to see a world where tramp stamps were traded for pearls, uncouth language was traded for a real vocabulary and sex scandals were traded for quiet acts of kindness. What an altogether more pleasant world this would be. And wouldn't it be just beautiful...

Well, I'm positively obsessed with class. Since I was young I've wanted only a few things, and I've wanted them more than anything. I want to be the best wife someday. I want to be the best mother someday. And three things I want to be before I shuffle off this mortal coil is to be graceful, elegant and classy. But it's all a work in  progress.
