J.K Rowling Quotes

Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.

It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.

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

There is no good or evil: only power and those too weak to seek it.

To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.

Whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.

You place too much importance… on the so-called purity of blood! You fail to recognize that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be!

What’s comin’ will come and we’ll meet it when it does.

You sort of start thinking anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.

Dark and difficult times lie ahead. Soon we must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy.
