I adore the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling – I’m actually re-reading it right now. As I’ve been making my way through the seven books there are so many lines that have truly stuck with me that are truly inspirational and motivational. I thought I’d share them with you to give you that little boost of positivity if you’re feeling down in the dumps.
I’ve always prized myself on my ability to turn a phrase. Words are, in my not so humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic, capable of both inflicting injury and remedying it. – Albus Dumbledore
Said by the greatest wizard himself, Mr Albus Dumbledore. He’s explaining the true power that words have, and how much more powerful they are than any spell you may come across. He may be a fictional character, but he is still one of the wisest men ever invented.
We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are. – Sirius Black
This quote is said by my all-time favourite character, Harry’s godfather Sirius Black. This tells you that at the end of the day, we all choose our own destiny and fate does not decide for us, so you can do what you want with your life.
It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. – Albus Dumbledore
Another Dumbledore quote which is honestly one of my favourites. It’s telling you that the small choices you make on a daily basis are what make you who you are – no matter how successful you may be. Although there are certain aspects of life we will never be able to control, we can master our own moral compass.
It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live. – Albus Dumbledore
Although having an active imagination is greatly rewarding, being stuck there all the time doesn’t do you any favours in the long run. It’s all well and good dreaming, but at some point, you need to stop and start doing.
Happiness can be found in the darkest times, if one only remembers to turn on the light. – Albus Dumbledore
My favourite Harry Potter quote of all time. Does this really need any explanation on why it’s amazing?
