Words to Grow By.

"The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are, ever after, secure in your ability to survive.  You will never truly know yourself, or the strength of your relationships, until both have been tested by adversity.  Such knowledge is truly a gift...It is painfully won, and it has been worth more to me than any qualification I ever earned."

~from JK Rowling's 2008 Harvard Commencement Address, as seen in the May issue of Real Simple magazine
