Exactly!
I agree totally with you.
She's definetly someone who one can look upto.
She's an inspiration to many, and ofcourse, its her hardwork,
skills and creativity that has got to her what she has today.

Nice thread, will add more quotes as and when I can. I see her documentary, her Harvard speech...well, all her interviews over and over again, it's just great hearing her talk and listening to her, she's so wise and inspirational... Esp. love her thoughts on the nature of love, importance of family, courage/fear, bigotry and failure.

This is lovely. This woman has real wisdom and that is reflected through her character Albus Dumbledore.

Oh Dumbly-dorrr



Oh my Rowling!!! I loved the one about the teabags and the one about her daughter being kidnapped. And ofcourse the one about failure because its so true: worst fears being realized is scary...no wonder she thought of a boggart!

"People ask me if there are going to be stories of Harry Potter as an adult. Frankly, if I wanted to, I could keep writing stories until Harry is a senior citizen, but I don't know how many people would actually want to read about a 65 year old Harry still at Hogwarts playing bingo with Ron and Hermione."

Some of the things she said when she recently came on Oprah:

Dementors came from her depression. "Clinical depression is a terrible place to be. I think I had tendencies to depression quite young.  It became really acute when I was 25-28; it was a dark time.  It is that absence of feeling, that absence of hope.  You don't know you can feel better.  It is so difficult to describe to someone who hasn't been there, because it isn't sadness.  Sadness is not a bad thing, to cry to feel.  And it was because of my daughter that I went and got help."
She articulates it very well, it's not sadness, it's numbness.

Rock bottom became her foundation, how to use failure. "It doesn't get spoken about enough.  I do not know anyone... who are terrified, who are in a straight jacked of their own making, because theyy are terrified of failing, and they won't try for fear of failing. "

"I'm not pushing any belief system here, although there is a lot of Christian imagery in the books, that's undeniable. And certanily in Hallows...that's an illusion to a belief system in which I was raised.  But to answer the question about being critized in that way [by religious groups]... If they're talking about the dark and scary stuff, I think it is perfectly legitiment for a parent to say that's a little old for my child, or we're going to discuss that together, read that together... that's great.  In fact, that's perfect!  On the 'You must not discuss witchcraft, you must not have witches or magic in the book,' I find that nonsensical."

And now my fav quote from her Oprah appearance:

"I am very frustrated by a fear of imagination, I don't think that's healthy." Word, Jo, WORD. Wink

I love her wisdom too...and love how she can be philosophical even about the smallest things in life...she's just a very deep person. I can see where her wisdom comes from...she's a Snake (chinese astrology).
