29 interesting quotes by J.K. Rowling to inspire you

Quotes by JK Rowling

Welcome, dear reader. Today I thought it would be interesting to explore some quotes by J.K. Rowling.

Joanne Rowling, or J.K. Rowling as she’s better known, is a British author who famously wrote the Harry Potter series of books. I’m sure you know that already, dear reader.

She has written many books both as J.K. Rowling and under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, and commercially, she must be one of the most successful authors of all time.

That said, before her writing success, she had endured a challenging life, which made her success even more impressive.

I am an admirer of J.K. Rowling, both as an author and a person. She’s very smart, and she’s always prepared to say what she thinks, regardless of whether it meets the fashionable dogma of the day.

So here are 29 interesting quotes by J.K. Rowling that I hope you will find inspiring. Enjoy them all, and feel free to share them.
