43 J.K. Rowling Quotes To Help You Overcome Difficulties In Life

With the success of Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling quotes and ideas gained popularity around the world. JK Rowling, the name which famously penned down the Harry Potter series, was born on 31 July 1965 in Gloucester, England. Today, she is a novelist, philanthropist, film producer, and a television producer as well but seven years after graduating from university, Rowling saw herself as a failure. Her marriage had failed, and she was jobless with a dependent child, but she described her failure as a liberating force that allowed her to focus on writing. She used to write in cafés; famously in the Nicolson’s Café and The Elephant House.

Harry Potter, initially being rejected by 12 publishing houses, finally got an opportunity to publish from Bloomsbury, London. Many characters in the series, like Hermione Granger, King’s Cross, the popular gateway into the Wizarding World etc., are inspired from her own life. In 2004, Rowling was declared the first person to become a US-dollar billionaire by writing books by the Forbes. Here are the best J.K. Rowling quotes to help you overcome difficulties in life.
