“What Valerie developed is the art of telling people to go to hell and making them look forward to the trip.”Jarrett keeps a list of 21 aphorisms--"life lessons"--on her hard drive, which she cites in speeches, including:

- Put yourself in the path of lightning.
- The world is filled with wankers.
- When the going gets tough, the tough go to bed.
