    I love Audrey Hepburn! But I’ve gotta completely disagree with the quote. I understand the intent, I think – and I can kind of go with that. But what the quote actually SAYS is the whole problem with modern America “the most important thing in the world is my happiness.” Doesn’t matter if it hurts you. Doesn’t matter if it takes advantage of you. Doesn’t matter if I let TRULY more important things slide. ‘Long as I’m happy. What a self-centered way of living!

    Now, I know that Audrey Hepburn didn’t actually DO any of those things; she was an amazing woman who did a lot for other people. But the quote, by itself, is more alarming to me than inspiring.
