5 Great Life Quotes From The Harry Potter Series

I apologize for not posting yesterday loves!

Time got the best of me. Anyways, I'm back today with another post just for you and it involves the oh-so-famous Harry Potter.

Yes, that’s right; I’m one of those ridiculously-annoying Potter lovers.

I remember stumbling upon the first book in the Harry Potter series (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone) back in my high school library years ago and since then I’ve been a fan. I’ve read each book and watched all the movies (Just a bit of TMI: I cried when Severus Snape died – don’t judge me loves:)
If you put aside the fact that on the surface the story is one of a magical land with witches and wizards mixing potions and flying on broomsticks, you’ll actually find that there are some pretty deep life lessons hidden within that you and I, and every other person in the world, can actually apply to bring clarity into our lives. (Considering the books have collectively sold nearly 500 million copies worldwide, I'd say others have found this to be true too.) Below are five of my favorite life quotes from the Harry Potter books just for you:
1.      “It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”Professor Dumbledore
2.       “If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”Sirius Black
3.       “You fail to realize that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.”Professor Dumbledore (As if you didn't already know from my previous posts, I am a big believer that we have the power to choose how we live in this world and what we share in it.)
4.       “The world isn’t split into good people and Death Eaters. We have all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the power we choose to act on. That’s who we really are.”Sirius Black (reminds me of Maya Angelou’s quote, “I am human and nothing human is alien to me.”)
5.       “Working hard is important but, there’s something that’s even more important: believing in yourself.”Harry Potter (You can't do anything great until you first believe you are capable of doing something great.)
There you have it; my top 5 quotes from the Harry Potter series. Now you can call me childish if you'd like loves, but this gal is an unabashed Harry Potter fan!
Besides, I have a feeling a good number of you are fans too:)
