Eight Invaluable Life Lessons From J.K Rowling
J.K Rowling is a shining example of how each of us, with determination and a little magic, are capable of reaching our full potential.
On her 54th birthday we wanted to celebrate the lady who not only gave us Harry Potter, but taught us some invaluable life lessons along the way.
Happy Birthday J.K Rowling! You will always be our queen. ⚡
'We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already.'
'I would like to be remembered as someone who did the best she could with the talent she had.'
'Youth cannot know how age thinks and feels. But old men are guilty if they forget what it was to be young.'
'I don't believe in the kind of magic in my books. But I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.'
'Failure in life is inevitable. It's impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case you fail by default.'
'You sort of start thinking anything's possible if you've got enough nerve.'
'Happiness can found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.'
'The discipline involved in finishing a piece of creative work is something on which you can truly pride yourself.'
'It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.'
We've written a lot of blog posts about both J.K Rowling and Harry Potter, our favourite of which was written by our friend Lucy Rahim and talks about the way Harry Potter changed her life. It's a great read. You can take a look right here.
