Literary Birthday – 14 April – Mireille Guiliano

Happy Birthday, Mireille Guiliano, born 14 April 1946.

Seven Quotes

  1. I can never leave a book store without buying a book. I read four or five at a time.
  2. We only have one body, and you have to show respect for it.
  3. Make treating yourself a priority and always remember your life is happening now. Don’t put off all your dreams and pleasures to another day. In any balanced personal definition of success there has to be a powerful element of living life in the present.
  4. French women typically think about good things to eat. American women typically worry about bad things to eat.
  5. Since the pleasure of most foods is in the first few bites, eat one thing on your plate at a time, at least at the start of the meal when you can concentrate and enjoy the full flavours.
  6. Don’t let a busy life or electronic communication gadgets be your excuse for excess solitude – it’s a talent, but a rare one, to make yourself laugh.
  7. Intelligence, knowledge or experience are important and might get you a job, but strong communication skills are what will get you promoted.

Mireille Guiliano is a French-American writer. She is the author of five books including French Women Don’t Get Fat: The Secret of Eating for Pleasure, and more recently,  French Women Don’t Get Facelifts.
