[1: 1,305 of 10,000] J.K. Rowling’s Harvard Commencement Speech

In Article on February 17, 2014 at 4:49 AM

I love the speech of J.K. Rowling at Harvard’s Commencement in 2008.

Three things stayed with me –

1. Only a fool can romanticise being poor.

It is not acceptable to say I am fine with no money, can barely eat, no shelter to rejuvenate, and barely making it at the end of the day! She is right that being poor is not a good state ; that’s why I love the power of the universe where there are enough resources for everyone. Absolutely no reason why not everyone can be rich and successful; the only thing hindering us and our wealth is our fear and inaction.

2. Blaming your parents has expiration.

People laughed when she uttered that thought but she was right. If we are under the strict jurisdiction of our parents then it is valid but as we grow up, it is in our RESPONSIBILITY to choose the path that would lead us living our dream. We are our own roots, trunk, leaves, and fruits.

3. Imagination to feel and to emphatize with others.

This is a beautiful gift that all human being could do and makes us human and an innovator.  A creator to keep us connected and be good with one another.
