5 Quotes by J.K. Rowling


1. “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.”

2. “Books are like mirrors: if a fool looks in, you cannot expect a genius to look out.”

3. “We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already.”

4. “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.”

5. “Is ‘fat’ really the worst thing a human being can be? Is ‘fat’ worse than ‘vindictive’, ‘jealous’, ‘shallow’, ‘vain’, ‘boring’ or ‘cruel’? Not to me.”

  1. No. 5 is mine. Cos i still can’t understand where calling someone fat is such a bad bad thing. There are definitely more worse things. Thanks Rachel

  2. “Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.”

    I love that one! A friend of mine showed me the speech she made at Harvard, in which she said the quote above, and it is truly inspiring.

  3. I loved them all! I really look up to her and she’s my role model – the kind of writer I want to grow up to be. I really liked #2. It’s sassy and definitely true. But #4 is the one I understand completely. I think books have had a huge impact on my life and personality and I’m so happy that I’m a bookworm. 🙂
