13 J K Rowling Quotes To Inspire You

J K Rowling has seen phenomenal success. She has earned stardom which was earlier known only to music stars. She has earned money as much as a business tycoon does in a lifetime. She has earned the respect of one and all. And she did all this by becoming our favorite author.

However, this has not been easy. You don’t reach such heights without your share of struggle. In her own words, she was “as poor as it is possible in modern Britain, without being homeless”. In fact, Rowling took to writing only to divert her mind from the daily hardships. It took Rowling five long years to complete the first book. As if that wasn’t enough, it was extremely difficult to find a publisher. She had to hear No from most publishers. Finally, in 1997, Bloomsbury published the first book and the rest, as they would say, is history.

She has been an inspiration for millions of people around the world. On her birthday, we bring you some of her pearls of wisdom:
