I totally agree, JKR is just brill. Haters to the left!

Text of the speech can be found here, if you want to pull quotes to embroider onto a pillow or something. I'm certainly inspired. ;)

Also, of related interest is Steve Jobs's commencement speech from a few years back. The bit about his calligraphy class was particularly neat.

"Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish." I thought momentarily that could make an excellent bumper sticker until I realized all of the homeless guys in my hood might take offense. Good advice if not taken too literally.
