J.K. Rowling
“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case, you fail by default.”
J.K. Rowling

Katherine Applegate
“I was born in a place humans call central Africa, in a dense rain forest so beautiful, no crayons could ever do it justice.”

Elizabeth Gilbert
