A few weeks back, Dave, the kids and I went down to DC to check out two exhibits our friends had designed. One of them was the food exhibit, featuring Julia Child’s kitchen.
I loved looking at everything Julia had in her kitchen—from the pegboard walls to the magnets she kept on the fridge. But there was one thing in particular I lingered over, her bookshelf. What did she think was important enough to keep on the shelves in the heart of her home? There were many books, but the one that caught my eye was sandwiched between Joy of Cooking and How to Clean Everything—Barlett’s Familiar Quotations.
Ah, a kindred spirit. Even more so than I previously thought.
I’ve come clean about my geeky love for quotes. How about you? Do you collect quotes? Do you have a favorite?
psst: I may be a tad obsessed with them.
