Promise me you’ll always me remember

Harry looked around at the stacked shoes and umbrellas remembering how he used to wake every morning looking up at the underside of the staircase, which was more often than not adorned with a spider or two. Those had been the days before he had known anything about his true identity; before he had found out how his parents had died or why such strange things often happened around him. But Harry could still remember the dreams that had dogged him, even in those days: confused dreams involving flashes of green light.

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

We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all of the power we need inside ourselves already.

Be not afraid of greatness…

Anonymous asked: What was Hogwarts graduation like? Do we have any info on that? I've always wondered!

simplypotterheads:

There is! 

John Noe: Now, you know what I’m curious about now, is that one of the neatest things about the Hogwarts tradition is the entrance ceremony, from the whole riding the boats to the castle to the sorting ceremony. What kind of traditions is there for graduation, and leaving Hogwarts?
J.K. Rowling: Do you know, John, I’m really glad you asked that, because I felt a huge sadness that I wouldn’t write a graduation scene. I really, during the final book, kept thinking it would’ve been — it felt sad that the book wasn’t going to end with that feast scene, the graduation scene, but it couldn’t, it just couldn’t. That’s not the way it could’ve ended. It would’ve felt far too trite, and a lot of people felt the epilogue was too sentimental. I think to have a graduation scene on top of what just happened would’ve been absurd anticlimax.
John Noe: Did you have ideas for kind of traditions they would do, like ride the boats back out of Hogwarts —
J.K. Rowling: Oh yeah, definitely! The boats would’ve been the most poetic and beautiful way to for them to leave, and symbolic in that they — Harry wouldn’t have seen the Thestrals again. You know what I mean? It would’ve been a return to innocence really, and passage of water is so symbolic, in history of magic. So yeah, I think it would’ve been great.
