These women are a tribe that inspire, motivate, give women all over the globe the courage to stand up for what they are born to do, to listen to their soul’s voice, recognise it and follow through. They maybe known for their outside beauty, red carpets and magazine covers but it takes immense grit and perseverance to achieve what they all did at some point in their lives and it was never easy. IAD scours some quotes that reflect strength in style and style in strength through these international stars.
For those who are having a heartless and waning day, this may bring some light in your current world of clouds. These yesteryear’s actresses bring it on:
Audrey Hepburn: I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.
Marilyn Monroe: Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.
Elizabeth Taylor: It is strange that the years teach us patience; that the shorter our time, the greater our capacity for waiting.
Katharine Hepburn: Never complain. Never explain.
Natalie Wood: Not even analysis, by itself, can transform you. You must still do the changing yourself.
Lauren Bacall: Imagination is the highest kite one can fly.
Ingrid Bergman: I was the shyest human ever invented, but I had a lion inside me that wouldn’t shut up!
