Rowling’s Speech at the Harvard University Commencement
If you choose to use your status and influence to raise your voice on behalf of those who have no voice ; if you choose to identify not only with the powerful , but with the powerless ; If you retain the ability to imagine yourself into the lives of those who do not have your advantages
then it will not only be your proud families who celebrate your existence , but thousands and millions of people whose reality you have helped transform for the better. We do not need magic to change the world , we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already : we have the power to imagine better.
I am nearly finished . I have one last hope for you , which is something that I already had at
  21.The friends with whom I sat on graduation day have been my friends for life . They are my children's godparents , the people to whom I've been able to turn in times of trouble , friends who have been kind enough not to sue me when I've used their names for Death Eaters
At our graduation we were bound by enormous affection , by our shared experience of a time that could never come again , and , of course . by the knowledge that we held certain photographic evidence that would be exceptionally valuable any of us ran for Prime Minister.
So today , I can wish you nothing better than similar friendships . And tomorrow , I hope that even if remember not a single word of mine , you remember those of Seneca , another of those old Romans I met when I fled down the Classics corridor , in retreat from career ladders , in search of ancient wisdom.
As is a tale , so is life : not how long it is , but how good it is , is what matters. I wish you all very good lives. Thank you very much.
