I couldn’t help but start the year off with the incomparable Julia Childs.
“Upon reflection, I decided I had three main weaknesses: I was confused (evidenced by a lack of facts, an inability to coordinate my thoughts, and an inability to verbalize my ideas); I had a lack of confidence, which caused me to back down from forcefully stated positions; and I was overly emotional at the expense of careful, ‘scientific’ though. I was thirty-seven years old and still discovering who I was.”
“Being tall is an advantage, especially in business. People will always remember you. And if you’re in a crowd, you’ll always have some clean air to breathe.”
“Life itself is the proper binge.”
“…nothing is too much trouble if it turns out the way it should.”
“Everything in moderation… including moderation.”
“Always remember: If you’re alone in the kitchen and you drop the lamb, you can always just pick it up. Who’s going to know?”
Finally I had to include this image for nothing more than the fact that at five feet ten (Paul) to her six feet two (Julia) these two should not fit in the tub. And yet they do!
