These Inspiring Quotes By JK Rowling Will Make You Want To Create Magic

JK Rowling is not just a famous author, she is probably one of the planet’s most well-known people. Almost all of that fame is connected to Harry Potter and the magical world that Rowling created in a series of books. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is up there among the most widely sold books of all time, with more than 100 million copies in dozens of different languages sold. She wrote history, and one after another, her books just kept mesmerizing kids and adults all the same.

Rowling, best known for all things Potterverse, has also written several stories outside of the ‘Harry Potter’ universe. On her 53rd birthday, read some of her encouraging quotes that are nothing short of magical inspiration-

“We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.”

“As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters.”

“I have never been remotely ashamed of having been depressed. Never. What’s to be ashamed of? I went through a really rough time and I am quite proud that I got out of that.”

“Life is difficult, and complicated, and beyond anyone’s total control, and the humility to know that will enable you to survive its vicissitudes.”

“It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”

“You might never fail on the scale I did, but some failure in life is inevitable. It is 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 will never truly know yourself, or the strength of your relationships, until both have been tested by adversity.”

“Luck can only get you so far.”

“Humans have a knack of choosing precisely those things that are worst for them.”

“There is an expiration date on blaming your parents for steering you in the wrong direction; the moment you are old enough to take the wheel, responsibility lies with you.”

“If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”

“Are you the sort of person who gloats when they see a woman fall, or the kind that celebrates a magnificent recovery?”

“It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.”

“Whatever money you might have, self-worth really lies in finding out what you do best.”

“Wit beyond measure is a man’s greatest treasure.”

“Curiosity is not a sin…. But we should exercise caution with our curiosity.”

“I think the willfully unimaginative see more monsters. They are often more afraid.”

“It was strange how your brain could know what your heart refused to accept.”

“The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are, ever after, secure in your ability to survive.”
