words of wisdom wednesday

" . . . but some failure in life is inevitable. 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."

"we do not need magic to transform our world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better."

j.k. rowling
2008 harvard commencement speech
