    Now I’m going to be haunted by Audrey’s high piping voice quoting all day..

  2. Bruce Says:

    ha ha
    Blame henry. He sent me a youtbe link to Audrey being gorgeous and sweet, helping the famine stricken Ethiopeans, back in the 1980’s.

  3. Marie Says:

    oh sorry Audrey…. you did your best…there are still many people in Ethipea needing food aid.

  4. jacqui Says:

    that is a perfect quote and perfect photo to put it with

  5. Bruce Says:

    Thanks jac. As I said , henry’s facebook post of Audry came at just the moment this photo crossed my editing light board.

    I was just then trying to upload Audrey singing Moon River for you Marie – just for you to be properly haunted – and at the correct high pitch – but have to upgrade wordpress first before audio uploads are allowed.

    In the meantime – here is a youtube clip for you:

  6. Marie Says:

    Thank you Bruce ..now I have Audrey and Moon River stuck on replay..
    I’m going to download Queen’s “We will rock you” to delete it..

    This blog is fantastic. Anytime i am feeling down, I come to this page and the serenity overwhelms me… Thank You Bruce. You are a more than a legend!!!

    • Bruce Says:

      Thanks Helena
      I couldn’t have said it better myself. thats right. i did say it to you myself. thanks for letting me dictate comments to you.

  8. lisa Says:

    ‘more than a legend’ reminds me of that sporting man, cant remember if it was football or cricket, but he had such a good game and played so well that when they interviewed him he said, “i’ve been in awe of myself all day”.

  9. lisa Says:

    also, i have a magnet with a picture of elvis on it and it sticks to the fridge and holds a little notebook and pen. it came from gracelands and says “the sun never sets on a legend”. now that’s gold.

  10. Susan Says:

    What if you have no arms?
    I wondered for a second what Helena was trying to get out of you, Hi Helena!

    • Bruce Says:

      I thought about that too Susan. maybe we should change it to: Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it’s at the end of your arm or prosthetic – And if you have no hands and not even a prosthetic one, then me with my hands I’ll help you get one so that you too – as you get older can remember you have another hand – the first is to help yourself, the second is to help others. –
      Audrey Hepburn

    I like the quote Bruce
    We do have some responsibilities as part of human being- help others.
    It could be just 1 or perhaps more as long we are not greedy when helping ourselves ..humanity and humility….mmmm !!!

    • hongkongphotographer Says:

      Hi Fika. Welcome to A Poetic universe, and thanks for the comment. let me know if you have any favourite quotes . Would love some traditional Indonesian pearls of wisdom which I am sure there are many. B
