"Remember: 'No once'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.
Chapter 6, Part 5: La Peetch, My Life in France.
The simplest of all Julia's many messages, and needless to say, powerful. My dears, I have just come home from performing as part of an assessment for my drama studies, and I don't think that I have ever been more in tune with how much I love my friends. No matter what I say, or do, I am the luckiest little goose on the planet - my friends are the most beautiful people! Your smiles, your hugs, your gritty smirks and rude giggles have made me feel so loved. Not one of you probably realize how much I enjoy your company, but I do. I go to bed at night and want to cry just thinking about that lovely little pat on the back M. gave me or that laugh J. had when I told her about it! O., K., M., M., J., A., S., S., T., H., J., M., A., Y., E., and all of the rest of the alphabet, thankyou. I feel worthwhile. It's 90% your fault!
