  • I was too young really to have had a firm grasp on who I was before all the attention. Then with all eyes on me, I became extremely self-conscious. My mother helped me see that the attention was a boost to my career.
  • I never dreamed I could elicit this much attention and I must say, I didn’t like it. In retrospect, I felt like a commodity. But at that time, I just wanted to hurry up and get dressed. I felt awfully foolish in that stage costume.
  • My mother desperately wanted to become an actress. Yet my grandfather strictly forbade her to go near the stage. He was adamant. He felt the occupation was beneath his daughter, and might reflect badly on the Van Heemstra heritage. I don’t think my mother ever got over her disappointment in obeying him.”
  • My mother would have been better off in Vienna, or anywhere in Italy or France – anywhere where music and art were of equal importance to food and drink.

    Random Quotes By Audrey Hepburn

    Random Audrey quotes which I loved.

    “Money never made anyone happy in and of itself,”

    “But it gave me a real sense of security, so it enhanced my ability to be happy. But I always worked with what I had, hiding away my acorns just like the squirrels. Sometimes there were more acorns, sometimes less. But I was never without at least one nut!”

    “There is nothing more important to me than having given birth,” she has often said when asked about her most important accomplishment. “The thing is, I have always felt that way. With every woman it is different, I know this. I don’t judge.”

    “Or at least I try not to. But I truly cannot imagine anything – anything at all – being more important in a woman’s life than the baby she raises. I’m sure I’m very narrow-minded here; I know there are millions of women – childless and not – who have other priorities. But for me, it was never a choice. I wanted to have babies more than anything else, and I had so much difficulty having them.”

    “I developed a tendency to retreat to a fantasy world when life wasn’t going my way. “… “I also made bargains with God. For a quiet thing, I was chattering in my head all the time.”

    Quotes by Audrey Hepburn in Movies

    “The blues are because you are getting fat or maybe it’s been raining too long. You’re just sad, that’s all. The “mean reds” are horrible. Suddenly you’re afraid, and you don’t even know what you’re afraid of. Did you ever get that feeling?

    … Well, when I get it, the only thing that does any good is to jump into a cab and go to Tiffany’s. Calms me down right away. The quietness and the proud look of it. Nothing very bad can happen to you there.”
    – Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’

    My Favourite Quotes About Audrey Hepburn

    Quotes by Audrey Hepburn from people around her.

  • … Audrey had comfortably taken refuge in the idea of being a perennial student — studying dance, taking acting lessons, improving her voice range. But now that her show was a success, and she was up for an Oscar in her first big movie, she felt a bit like an imposter. – Diane Maychick
  • “Most people think of audrey as regal,” Gregory Peck recalled. “But I saw how hard she worked at that. It was part of her heritage, yes, but circumstances – the war, her missing father – tarnished her crown. That was inevitable, but it was really a good thing. It rounded her personality. Despite her clearly recognizable look – what I like to think of as a sophisticated elf – she had a multidimensional personality.”
  • “There was so many paradoxes in that face. Darkness and purity; depth and youth; stillness and animation.” – Anthony Beauchamp, a photographer

  • She would run like a deer down the platform at the train station calling, “Hello, Cathy dear, I’m here! Let’s get started, “in the sweetest, softest voice I’d ever heard,” – Cathleen Nesbitt
