Inspiring J K Rowling….

Here’s an inspiring commencement speech given by JK Rowling at Harvard in 2008…. entitled  ‘The Benefits of Failure’….

She said….: “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.”

  • Thank you John. That is easily the best speech I have ever listened to. Ms. Rowling is a very compelling presence who has learned much in her 42 years and we can each learn so much from taking that speech to heart…….Diane
