Quite a number of kids grow up to become potter heads - For it not only conjures images of a far away land where magic is real and dragons are alive, it has a certain charm about it and a beautiful way of teaching some of life’s best lessons through its characters.

I grew up with it as a kid and no matter how much I read, I still find a thing or two giving me “Aha!” moments every single time. It is very surreal, I know :)

Some of its best quotes here -

  2. “It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be”
  3. “Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory.”
