Presented to the graduating class of Harvard at the school’s commencement, this JK Rowling speech offers the perfect balance of inspiring words and engaging personal experiences. Looking back on her own experience as a young woman who had recently graduated university, she discusses the benefits of failure and the importance of imagination. 

The famous author explains how the world is too eager to provide a set of criteria for measuring failure today, and that we must define it ourselves. She goes on to discuss the failure of her own marriage and career as a young woman. She believes that it is impossible to live without failing, unless one lives so cautiously—at which point makes it seem as if one is’t really living at all.

To truly know yourself and those you love, failing is a necessity.
