I'm sure I forgot a boatload of great quotes, so suggest them if I did! These are the ones that I have in the back of my mind at all times.
  1. "It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live."
    Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
  2. "Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light."
    Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban
  3. "It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are far more than our abilities."
    Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets
  4. "To the well organized mind, death is but the next great adventure."
    Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone
  5. "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
  6. "Dark times lie ahead of us and there will be a time when we must choose between what is easy and what is right."
    Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire
  7. "Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all, those who live without love."
    Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows
  8. And my absolute favorite...
    Because I was a counselor at a leadership camp for seven years and every year the older/last-year counselors got to say their favorite quote and I knew for years which one I was going to say and somehow no one ever swiped it from me.
  9. "It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well."
    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
