Audrey on a UNICEF Mission
Audrey served as Goodwill Ambassador for United Nations International Chidren's Emergency Fund (UNICEF), from 1988 until her untimely death in January 1993.

For most of its 50 years, UNICEF has benefited greatly from the support of internationally known personalities. Audrey served as Goodwill Ambassador for United Nations International Chidren's Emergency Fund (UNICEF), from 1988 until her untimely death in January 1993. Through her work with UNICEF, she used her image and the great interest people had in her to attract world attention to her cause, but also of repaying the United Nations for rescuing her from starvation in 1945 Holland. Audrey's movie career took a back seat to her work for UNICEF which proved more meaningful to her than restarting her acting career. Audrey represented the agency in many capacities, not only appearing at public occasions to support the good cause of UNICEF but also traveling widely to the world's trouble spots to assess the situation of children.

Holly Golightly: But I am mad about Jose. I honestly think I'd give up smoking if he asked me.

Holly Golightly: I've got to do something about the way I look. I mean a girl just can't go to Sing Sing with a green face.

Holly Golightly: How do I look?
Paul Varjak: Very good. I must say, I'm amazed.

Holly Golightly: Cat! Cat! Oh, Cat... ohh...

Holly Golightly: He's all right! Aren't you, cat? Poor cat! Poor slob! Poor slob without a name! The way I see it I haven't got the right to give him one. We don't belong to each other. We just took up one day by the river. I don't want to own anything until I find a place where me and things go together. I'm not sure where that is but I know what it is like. It's like Tiffany's.
Paul Varjak: Tiffany's? You mean the jewelry store.
Holly Golightly: That's right. I'm just CRAZY about Tiffany's!

Holly Golightly: I'm like cat here, a no-name slob. We belong to nobody, and nobody belongs to us. We don't even belong to each other.

“Success is like reaching an important birthday and finding you're exactly the same.”

“There are certain shades of limelight that can wreck a girl's complexion”

“A quality education has the power to transform societies in a single generation, provide children with the protection they need from the hazards of poverty, labor exploitation and disease, and given them the knowledge, skills, and confidence to reach their full potential.”

“I never thought I'd land in pictures with a face like mine.”

“I was asked to act when I couldn't act. I was asked to sing 'Funny Face' when I couldn't sing, and dance with Fred Astaire when I couldn't dance - and do all kinds of things I wasn't prepared for. Then I tried like mad to cope with it.”

“I never think of myself as an icon. What is in other people's minds is not in my mind. I just do my thing.”

“If I blow my nose, it gets written all over the world.”

“Pick the day. Enjoy it - to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come... The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present - and I don't want to spoil any of it...

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”

“Your heart just breaks, that's all. But you can't judge, or point fingers. You just have to be lucky enough to find someone who appreciates you.”

“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.”

“I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it.”

“Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it's at the end of your arm, as you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.”

“People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.”

“You can always tell what kind of a person a man really thinks you are by the earrings he gives you”

“I don't want to be alone, I want to be left alone.”

A ''Classic" Audrey image
The Beginning:
Audrey Kathleen Ruston (changed to Hepburn)was born on the 4 May 1929 in Ixelles, Belgium to Joseph Victor Anthony Ruston and his second wife Ella Van Heemstra, who was the the former Baroness Ella (1900-1984), a Dutch aristocrat. Although born in Belgium, Hepburn had British citizenship and attended school in England as a child. In 1935, Hepburn's parents divorced and her father, a Nazi sympathiser, left the family.
Hepburn later referred to her father leaving as 'the most traumatic moment of her life.'
In 1939, her mother moved her and her two half-brothers to their grandfather's home in Arnhem in the Netherlands, believing the Netherlands would be safe from German attack. Hepburn attended the Arnhem Conservatory from 1939 to 1945, where she trained in ballet along with the standard school curriculum. In 1940, the Germans invaded the Netherlands. During the German occupation, Hepburn adopted the pseudonym Edda van Heemstra, modifying her mother's documents because an 'English sounding' name was considered dangerous, with her mother feeling that "Audrey" might indicate her British roots too strongly. Being English in the occupied Netherlands was...
