Favorite quote (from a person, from a book, etc) and why you love it
Well, there are two that I really like, that kind of go together. Both are spoken by Harry Potter character Sirius Black.
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.
If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.
Both talk about seeing a person by how they act. People show who they truly are through how they treat others, their actions, and how they speak. All of these define each of us as a person.
People tend to react, to judge others before really getting to know them. We need to stop and take a moment to chat and interact with others before we make a final judgment on who someone is.
It isn't hard to get to know someone; just start talking to them, and find out about who they are. A lot of people are happy to just talk. It might just help someone get through some difficult situations, if they have someone who cares, and is willing to just listen to them.
It will help them go from "dark" to "light."
