These Quotes from Harry Potter Books are major life lessons.

Every time your vision is blurry, pick up a book. Books transport you to a world of clarity and magic. The magic keeps expanding all the more when you read a Harry Potter Book. It was just recently, that I was introduced to amazing world of Harry Potter books!!

Of course, I watched the movies the years they were released however I had never read a Harry Potter book! And I realize what an adventure I was missing from my life. There are many great things that have been told and retold about the mesmerizing books of Harry Potter!

“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.” – Charles W. Eliot

I would say, I began reading Harry Potter during one of the gloomiest times of my life and I did find the light at the end of the tunnel! It helped me find a friend, teacher and a confidante in these amazing books of Harry Potter. I learnt to never be ashamed of myself and understood, it’s OK to break rules. It was comforting to learn how things we lose or forget about, often come back to us in some form or the other. I can always talk at length about these wonderful books of Harry Potter.

Often in life you find yourself at a threshold of something. It’s something that you always desired to have, however it arrives at a time you were least expecting it. The thing about human mind is that, it tries to gauge everything, the good, the bad and definitely the unknown! Albus Dumbledore said many great things in these Harry Potter books, which have been written magnificently by J.K. Rowling.

I am surprised to know that these books didn’t make it to the list of most read books during the lock down. However, The Harry Potter series is the most read book series in the world and has sold more than 500 million copies worldwide. Additionally, to reduce our lock down woes, Daniel Radcliffe and other cast from the Harry Potter movies started reading chapters from these books, in person, on social media.

The character of Albus Dumbledore is what binds the Harry Potter books and the story line. He is one of the central characters in the books, and there are some remarkable quotes made by him. Some of these quotes help you get a better perspective at your thoughts and life too.

 This particular quote by, J.K Rowling and narrated by Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter books is something I always resonate with. It simply means dwelling too much on what could have been or what could, takes away from what our present is. Yes, we must learn from our past and prepare for our future but should never forget to live in the present.

It is our choicesHarrythat show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
25 Harry Potter Quotes Volume 1 by The Board Room | TpT

Isn’t this obvious! According to me, our choices make us who we are. Our abilities define our skill and shows what we can do. However, it is our choices that filter the right from the wrong.

“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of timesif one only remembers to turn on the light.”
Magical Harry Potter Quotes - Echo-Lit

We often feel it’s the end of the world when we are left to overcome and battle tough times. However, there is always a light at the end of a tunnel. It is eventually up to us to find that switch of light and happiness and switch it on. Trying to be positive in dark times can be a difficult thing however there are many ways to turn on the torch of optimism.

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”– Neil Gaiman.

Books really make you believe in the strength that is hidden in all of us. Books not only improve your language skills, or communication skills, but they also help you transform your thoughts. They help you develop a personality and definitely make you travel without really moving.

Harry Potter books are so much more than just books of magic or creativity. These books thrive on emotions and feelings. The best ones being about friendship and staying strong during adversity! These books simply reaffirm your faith in everything that comes in between being a child to being an adult!

“‘There are all kinds of courage,’ said Dumbledore, smiling. ‘It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.'”
On the different kinds of courage. | "It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends." — Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

For me, my friends are everything and those who know me, will agree to this instantly. Being there for your friends is the least you can do as a friend. Also did I tell you that it may also involve climbing mountains or knocking down huge trolls? Also, remember what Albus Dumbledore said about being united?

“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.” — Albus Dumbledore
"We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided."

“A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading.”– William Styron

Harry Potter books not just leaves you with experiences but also the desire to re-read them all over again. It makes you believe in magic and the magic of magic after all!

I love J.K Rowling and this quote! It's very inspiring and motivational!
