I love quotes. I love sticking Post-It notes on my wall with various messages that I feel like I need to remember.
Near the end of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” Albus Dumbledore delivers my favorite line that was never uttered in the books.
While dear old Dumbles’ quote might have been too recent to have made the cut for Kershner’s final chapter, it doesn’t make the line — or the chapter — any less relevant.
These final four pages are filled with things I need to remember for the rest of my life. Our dear Mr. Clemens might be the next to make the wall:
The difference between the right word and the nearly right word is the same as that between lightning and lightning bug. - Mark Twain
To end the semester, I leave you with the words of wisdom from Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore:
Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.
And last, but not least:
Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all, those who live without love.
