• "It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously, that you might as well not have lived at all." - JK Rowling
  • "Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light." -Dumbledore (POA)
  • "And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." - Roald Dahl
  • "Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and above all, those who live without love." - Dumbledore
  • "'It's very beautiful over there' I don't know where there is, but I believe it's somewhere. And I hope it's beautiful."
  • "What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person." - Paper Towns, John Green
  • "And maybe by imagining these futures we can make them real, and maybe not, but either way we must imagine them." - Paper Towns, John Green
  • Harry: You’re the weak one. And you’ll never know love, or friendship. And I feel sorry for you.
    • Lord Voldemort: You’re a fool, Harry Potter, and you will lose everything.
  • "We all have the potential to fall in love a thousand times in our lifetime. It’s easy. The first girl I ever loved was someone I knew in sixth grade. Her name was Missy; we talked about horses. The last girl I love will be someone I haven’t even met yet, probably. They all count. But there are certain people you love who do something else; they define how you classify what love is supposed to feel like. These are the most important people in your life, and you’ll meet maybe four or five of these people over the span of 80 years. But there’s still one more tier to all this; there is always one person you love who becomes that definition. It usually happens retrospectively, but it happens eventually. This is the person who unknowingly sets the template for what you will always love about other people, even if some of these loveable qualities are self-destructive and unreasonable. The person who defines your understanding of love is not inherently different than anyone else, and they’re often just the person you happen to meet the first time you really, really, want to love someone. But that person still wins. They win, and you lose. Because for the rest of your life, they will control how you feel about everyone else."
