According to Madam Pomfrey, thoughts could leave deeper scars than almost anything else.


We know what we are but not what we may be.


Don’t believe everything that you think.


The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination.


If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.


Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes.


Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay. Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvelously. Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones.


Sometimes if you want to see a change for the better, you have to take things into your own hands.


My happiness is correlated with my acceptance and in inverse proportion to my expectations.


Anger is like an acid that is more harmful to the vessel in which it is stored than onto which it is poured.
