Hey, book lovers! How are you doing? We know that some of you—if not all—are sick and tired of all these quarantine measures and limitations. We too. But we have to be strong. Stay home and try to find positive aspects of our current situation.
To help you, we’ve selected some of the most inspiring quotes from J.K. Rowling. If you are a member of the Harry Potter fandom, you might know that Joanne Rowling began her work on this masterpiece, when she was in a deep depression. But she managed to redirect negative energy and create something really amazing. We believe that you can do something great too! Just do something. Just do it!
“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.”
“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.”
“You’ve got to work. It’s about structure. It’s about discipline. It’s all these deadly things that your schoolteacher told you you needed… You need it.”
“Whatever money you might have, self-worth really lies in finding out what you do best.”
“Failure meant a stripping away of the inessential. I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was, and began to direct all my energy into finishing the only work that mattered to me. Had I really succeeded at anything else, I might never have found the determination to succeed in the one arena I believed I truly belonged.”
“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.”
“I don’t think there’s any harm at all in allowing a kid to fantasize. In fact, I think to stop people from fantasizing is a very destructive thing indeed.”
“Life is difficult, and complicated, and beyond anyone’s total control, and the humility to know that will enable you to survive its vicissitudes.”
