If you haven't heard, J.K. Rowling recently spoke at Harvard University's Graduation Ceremony(http://harvardmagazine.com/go/jkrowling.html). Though I haven't read a single Harry Potter book, I love J.K. Rowling for what she represents...the power to make your wildest dreams come true despite your circumstances. Here are three quotes from her speech that I found inspiring and wanted to pass along:
"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."
"What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality." - Plutarch
"As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters." - Seneca
