Harry Potter Quote.
This last week has been my 'Harry Potter' week. I caught up on the sixth film, and part 1 of the seventh (I'd already read the books but somehow had missed out these two films!) and yesterday I went with my lovely cousins to see Deathly Hallows Part 2. I won't spoil it for other fans, except to say I found it moving and breathtakingly beautiful.
I love this quote:
It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live" - Albus Dumbledore
I am a big dreamer, so much so that sometimes I forget to enjoy the present. This is so important to remember.
For all of us who've grown up with Harry, Ron, Hermione, Hogwarts and magical life, who waited every year for the book to come to our doorstep so we could devour it and share the news with our friends, who watched the films, who identified with the characters, this is the end for now. That such a work of literature can be so complex, and beautiful and inspiring is what touched me most when I went to see the film yesterday.
JK Rowling- Thank you.
