There is the list of some quotes of Julia Barr:
  • The most important thing in any profession is to be true to yourself because things can come and go, and change for better or worse. You have to have a good foundation for who you are and what you feel about things to weather the ups and the downs. Particularly in this business, it can take you up and down, and you have to love it and be true to yourself.
  • I happen to look at some old tapes recently online on YouTube and it was all the fallout after the death of Brooke and Tom's daughter, Laura. That storyline, and I feel it's true of most of the story lines that dealt with serious issues, was really covered on multiple levels. They examined the complexity of what this does to people and their relationships--how Tom was affected and Adam was affected, and it was great writing. If you have good writing like that, there's nothing you can't do. I think that was some of my best work.
