The Wisdom of Harry Potter

When my youngest daughter was about fourteen, we started our own little book club. We chose the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling; she would read a book, I would follow, and then we would watch the movie together. In 2016, we took a family trip to Florida and part of our holiday was spent at Universal visiting the Harry Potter park – it was quite neat to experience the books come to life. Here are three of my favourite quotes from the Harry Potter series:

  • “It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities” – Albus Dumbledore
  • “What’s coming will come and we’ll face it when it does.” – Hagrid
  • “If you want to know what a man’s like, take a look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.” – Sirius Black

Thank you J.K. Rowling for bringing so many people the sense of wonder, magic, and the triumph of good.
