J.K. Rowling knows best

I don't think I've ever discussed Harry Potter in this blog before, but I'm guessing it shouldn't come as much of a surprise to anybody that I'm a huge fan and I thank God for sending us  J.K.Rowling everyday. I mean her mind, and imagination is nothing short of a miracle. How does one even think of all the things she created out of thin air? Her imagination , her ability to create characters, situations, worlds, and make them come to life  is nothing short of a testament to God.Yes I know, apparently alot of it is inspired and picked from various myths and legends. I say so what? We're all inspired by the world and its unimaginable history - so what if she picks up a few things?. The point is for about ten years she managed to keep the whole world hooked. When the series ended, the world was at a genuine loss..."what now?"  The themes are basic, and yes at times so cheesy but she always makes you feel part of the adventure- which is commendable. And of course I don't need to defend her, I mean she isn't one of the richest women in the world and the most widely read author for nothing. 
Maybe its blackmagic.

Anyway I came across something she said which I found really amusing, and I accept as having some truth in it, because if I've learned anything form her books about a fantasy world -its that she knows human nature.I just don't like that human beings in personal/ universal retrospectives end up, despite their best efforts, being their own worst enemy. Or looking like complete idiots. Why?

"Humans have a knack for choosing precisely the things that are worst for them"
