Nesėkmė ir vaizduotė pagal J.K.Rowling

Viena iš mano silpnybių yra įkvepiančios, uždegančios kalbos. Pasiklausius tokios kalbos jaučiuosi labai pakylėta ir pasikeitusi. Iš visos širdies rekomenduoju pasiklausyti rašytojos J.K.Rowlings (Hario Poterio autorės) kalbos, kurią ji sakė 2008aisias Harvarde.

Keletas labai stiprių citatų iš šitos kalbos:

So why do I talk about the benefits of failure? Simply because failure meant a stripping away of the inessential. I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was, and began to direct all my energy into finishing the only work that mattered to me. Had I really succeeded at anything else, I might never have found the determination to succeed in the one arena I believed I truly belonged. I was set free, because my greatest fear had been realized, and I was still alive, and I still had a daughter whom I adored, and I had an old typewriter and a big idea. And so rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.


Choosing to live in narrow spaces leads to a form of mental agoraphobia, and that brings its own terrors. I think the wilfully unimaginative see more monsters. They are often more afraid. What is more, those who choose not to empathise enable real monsters. For without ever committing an act of outright evil ourselves, we collude with it, through our own apathy.
