15 J.K. Rowling Quotes To Give You Some Magical Motivation
Over twenty years ago, J.K. Rowling introduced us to a world of magic beyond our wildest dreams and is one of the most inspiring writers of our time. The Harry Potter series is the best-selling book series in history with over 500 million copies sold and making Rowling the first billionaire author.
Before her immense success, Rowling was a recently divorced single mother struggling with her own demons as well as a crucial financial situation. In 1990, Rowling was waiting to catch a train that had been delayed for four hours when Harry Potter first popped into her head. Several years later, "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" was published in the UK and the rest was simply history.
Rowling's memorable characters and stories are alone an inspiration to all but her personal rags to riches tale is what makes us all believe that magic does exist in the world and in ourselves.
