“Talent and intelligence never yet inoculated anyone against the caprice of the Fate” – J K Rowling

I have been reading gujarati books from childhood but my love for english literature started when i first read harry potter. The books and its wisdom needs a post of its own but from past couple of days i have been listening to famous commencement speeches and the one that touched my heart is J K Rowling’s speech at Harvard. I think authors write best speeches because no one else has to write for them. All her speeches, interviews and writings have given me and countless others so much more in life.
