Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Tomes


Did you know that 2011 has been marked as the Year of Harry Potter, in light of  the launch of the film finale in the series? To join in the celebrations, Lavender Country accompanies you on a walk down memory lane with some lines of wisdom from the well-loved Professor Dumbledore:

_______________________________________________________________________


  • You know, the (Philosopher’s) Stone was really not such a wonderful thing. As much  money and life as you could want! The two things most human beings would choose  above all – the trouble is, humans do have a knack of choosing precisely those things  which are worse for them.

  • Fear of a name increases fear of the thing itself.

  • The truth. It is a beautiful and terrible thing […]

    • […] love as powerful as your mother’s for you leaves its own mark. Not a scar, no  visible sign … to have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is  gone, will give us some protection for ever. It is in your very skin.

    • To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.
    (Note: Professor Dumbledore was discussing about death as a natural passage of life.)



    • It is our choices […] that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.

    • It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.
