Those of you who have read my book will know that I am a big fan of the quotes of Friedrich Nietzsche. He was responsible for "That which does not kill us makes us stronger", a quote I believe in with every fibre of my being, which forms Chapter 37 in my book as that is the number of letters it has.
He has many other brilliant ones that I know about but until last night, when someone tweeted me during the Veronese show, I was unaware of this one: "And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music". It was not this person's tweet, it was their biog and I recognised the style of it immediately. It brought a tear to my eye and I think this has to be my second favourite quote of his, which set me wondering whether any of you has a favourite quote or saying? It doesn't have to be Nietzsche, there are some brilliant modern day philosophers, but do share.
I'm looking forward to a couple of days off this weekend, watching Crystal Palace tomorrow, and going to a karaoke charity night on Sunday to raise money for Leukaemia research. We are going en masse as a family, plus Sophie's flatmate Gilly, but I doubt that Chris will get up to sing – too much like a 'busman's holiday'! Unfortunately I have been banned from singing my party piece 'I Will Survive'… probably for the best!!!!
I'm back at QVC on Monday evening for the Butler & Wilson show at 9pm… I know it clashes with the final episode of Broadchurch on ITV but I'm hoping you'll do what I will be doing, record it and watch it when B & W has finished. If you have been watching, have any of you any clue as to who killed Danny Latimer? I even tweeted a friend of mine who works for ITV but she reckons she doesn't know????? I thought it was the vicar but now I'm wondering if it's Nige or maybe the bookies favourite Joe Miller, the policewoman's husband… enough red herrings to feed an army of vikings!
I'm then back on Wednesday afternoon for Gem Day – I have Best of the Best at 3pm, followed by Clogau at 4pm and South Sea Pearls at 6pm. Have a great weekend!
Much love, Julia xx
