Failure, Imagination, and Harry Potter




Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling's 2008 Harvard Commencement address | Harvard Magazine

"We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already." - J.K. Rowling @ Harvard.

My mother often sends me links to articles and videos. This one must have come from her, and of course I opened the link just after viewing the last of the movie series in the theater. J.K. Rowling would be happy to know that her words were remembered at least one more time by myself. Her commencement speech, given in 2008, was added to my inspiration list.
