It does not do well to dwell on dreams and forget to live. – Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. – Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
But you know, happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light. – Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are. – Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
And now, Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.

Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it. – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Dark and difficult times lie ahead. Soon we must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy. – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
The world isn’t split into good people and Death Eaters. We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are. – Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
