"The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - it's all that matters."
Audrey Hepburn as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in Sudan, 1989.
“She was a composite of reactions against bias, intolerance, and anger. Not necessarily directed toward her, but based on observation. This is perhaps why she was so even and fair with everyone. Her indignation toward intolerance grew to where there was a rage toward the injustices she observed.” —Robert Wolders
Audrey herself put it more simply: “I’ve been auditioning my whole life for this role, and I finally got it.”
Audrey and I met in a seductive ambience [in] a very sensual time in the Mediterranean. We got on immediately. After the first day’s rehearsals, I could tell that the relationship would work out wonderfully. Either the chemistry is there or it isn’t…That happened with Audrey. Performing with Audrey was quite disturbing, actually…With a woman as sexy as Audrey, you sometimes get to the edge where make-believe and reality are blurred—all that staring into each other’s eyes…I won’t discuss it more because of the degree of intimacy involved. The time spent with Audrey is one of the closest I’ve ever had. —Albert Finney

Audrey was known for something which has disappeared, and that is elegance, grace and manners – things you cannot take a course in. You’re born with it or not…She just was blessed. God kissed her on her cheek, and there she was.— Billy Wilder
