Five (or Seven) Quotes from Julia Child

Julia Child (née McWilliams)
August 15, 1912 -- August 13, 2004

“Find something you're passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.”

“I think every woman should have a blowtorch.”

“The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you've got to have a what-the-hell attitude.”

“Everything in moderation... including moderation.”

“Remember, 'No one's more important than people'! In other words, friendship is the most important thing--not career or housework, or one's fatigue--and it needs to be tended and nurtured.”

“To be a good cook you have to have a love of the good, a love of hard work, and a love of creating."

“I was 32 when I started cooking; up until then, I just ate.”
