How'd I miss this?

J.K. Rowling delivered the commencement address at Harvard this past June.

The whole thing is fabulous, but I was especially struck by the following quote:

Imagination is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and therefore the fount of all invention and innovation. In its arguably most transformative and revelatory capacity, it is the power that enables us to empathise with humans whose experiences we have never shared.
