Trailblazer Audrey Hepburn’s quote about compassion is the Socially Sparked Quote of the Week. Actress, fashion icon and humanitarian, Audrey Hepburn epitomizes the classic compassionate role model. As we continue to celebrate Women’s History Month and the trailblazing women in business and labor, Hepburn is one woman that future generations need to know and current generations can fondly remember.

“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.” — Audrey Hepburn

In brief, the legendary superstar exemplifies style, grace, charm and compassion even today. Her many credits include films as Sabrina, Funny Face and Breakfast at Tiffany’s; fashion icon for and with Paris fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy, and as the Goodwill Ambassador for United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), where she served from 1988 until her untimely death in January 1993.

The world truly lost a classic beauty inside and out when United Nations’ UNICEF Ambassador Audrey Hepburn passed away on January 20, 1993. While it’s been over a decade since her death, her memory and contributions in the worlds of film, stage, fashion, humanity and social good live on forever.
