Everyone knows how much I love Harry Potter…right? If you don’t, well, I love Harry Potter. I’ve read the books dozens of times, and I have made it a point to read them about every other year. 2017 is one of those years, and this July I’ve been revisiting the series very happily. Something about these books feel like coming home again, every time I read them. So here’s a short post today, just to share a couple quotes by Dumbledore, one from the first book and one from the last, that nicely encapsulate everything that Harry Potter has taught me in the past 16 years since I first read the books.
