What’s your favourite virtue? Courage what price do you miss despise bigotry what he missed willing to forgive got

love too short and bring quite catastrophic marriage in I’m left
with this baby and i cant get this baby back to Britain and I’ve got to be
billed as a life and adrenaline can be going through that
it was only when I came to rest at it hit me know what a complete mess I had made my life not hit me quite
hard we were as skin tissue can be without being
homeless in other words the existing tile in benefits and at that point I was definitely
clinically depressed and that’s just characterized to me by a a numbness coldness and then inability
to believe that you will feel happy again no you could feel
lighthearted again step all the color drained out life
really two men tools are among the farthest
creatures that cool this the median fest the doc East confused places the glory in decay and despair they drain peace hope and happiness out to the air around get to near a two min 20 and every good
feeling every happy memory will be sucked out to
be a good depression he said tricked clinical
depression is a is is a terrible place to be terrible
actually became depressed after her mother died yes but I think it was a kind until age
I think I had tendencies to watch depression from quite lemme it became really acute an when I was sort of 25-28 at work with what was apparent was a doc
time poverty entails fear and stress and sometimes depression it needs a
thousand petty humiliations and hardships climbing out of poverty by your own
efforts that is something on which to pride
yourself but poverty itself is romanticized only buy phones what I
feared most for myself your age was not poverty failure so the most important thing about that speech I think first of all
you talked about hell rock-bottom became the foundation from
which you rebuild your life that but the most important thing was
about how do you spell your Fania saying I so important doesn’t
expect about enough we speak about success all the time hmm but you know I do not know any I
have met and I think cell fortunate net
extraordinary people to Harry Potter and not wanna didn’t have their failure
and more month Anya and it’s the ability to resist to resist
failure in many ways to use Fania of Nate’s the greatest success doesn’t
sell yeah Sania home i fucken that people
have Highland are terrified known in a straight jacket
there in making because they’d rather do anything then a fail they don’t wanna try for fear
failing well that’s the rock bottom thing rock-bottom wasn’t fun that whole I’m
not gonna romanticized bottom now I’m not going to stand here and tell
you that failure is fun that period my life is a dark one and I have no idea that there was going
to be what the press has said states represented as a kind a
fairy tale resolution I have no idea then how small the tunnel
extended and for a long time any light at the end
of it was a hope rather than a reality so why do I talk about the benefits Fadia simply because
failure men to stripping away in essential I
stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I loss and began to
direct all my energy into finishing the only
work matter to me had i really succeeded anything else I might never have found the
determination to succeed in the one arena for I believed I truly belonged I was
sick free because my greatest fear been realized and I was still alive and I still had a
daughter whom I adored and I have an old typewriter and a big
idea and so rock-bottom became a solid
foundation which I rebuilt my life you might never
fail on this a lighted some failure in life is inevitable it is impossible today without failing at something
unless you live so cautiously you might as well not lift at
all in which case you failed by default got asthma its vice versa tech when I have 10 go to Harry Potter
books know about 30 Hickey and for years now I fell if it all disappeared and some days I do
feel like it is it real and this is where I would
come back to you know this would be my boat baseline not be back in May notes if I’d
known that 10 well City attend his own I come back here with the film chrome
and there would be my publish books in someone else’s the case in this room I mean it’s many incredible me really it I mean yes because it’s such a well-known part my
story now it’s a big yawn to hear however a as though it was so some sort perhaps
to strip naked for you it was my life with very cool night no thats think this every terrorist should goodnight I coming back kittens to split scouts one of the many
things I don’t the Interfax classics car it all down
which I pictured at the age of eighty in search of something I could not then
define was this written by the Greek of the few top what
we achieve in with me will change out to reality that is an
astonishing statement and get proven a thousand times every
day of our lives it expresses in part our in a stable
connection with the outside world the fact that we
touch other people’s lives simply by existing but how much more are you likely to touch a people’s lives your intelligence your capacity the hardware education you have and and
received you make unique status and unique
responsibilities eating your nationality sets you apart the great majority of you belong to the
world’s only remaining superpower the way you felt the way you need the way you protest the pressure you
bring to bear on your government has an impact way beyond your borders
that is your privilege and but 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 with the power less if you retain the
ability to imagine yourself into the lives those who do not have
your advantages then it will not only be you’re proud families to celebrate your
existence thousands and millions people this
reality you have helped change we do not need magic to transform we carry all the
power we need inside ourselves already we have the power to imagine
better
