Dumbledore's Wisdom
Dumbledore says people find it far easier to forgive others for being wrong than being right.
- Albus Dumbledore: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

About this journal




Worthy Words
If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.

Sirius Black: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.

Albus Dumbledore: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Unwritten
I am unwritten, can't read my mind, I'm undefined
I'm just beginning, the pen's in my hand, ending unplanned
Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten
Oh, oh, oh
I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines
We've been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can't live that way
Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inner visions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins

NATASHA BEDINGFIELD - Unwritten Lyrics

Quotes
Many that live deserve death. And some die that deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then be not too eager to deal out death in the name of justice, fearing for your own safety. Even the wise cannot see all ends.

J. R. R. Tolkien - The Lord Of the Rings
All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.

J. R. R. Tolkien - The Fellowship of the Ring
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

~Theodore Roosevelt
Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.

~John Lennon
When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse
And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
could it be worse?
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Coldplay - Fix You
So let me go out there
I can breathe fresh air
Stay with you all night
Just let me love you
Just for a while, want to
Be with you all night
Be with you all night
Until I fall asleep

Strange Choices

Title: Strange Choices
Pairing(s): Past Harry/Ginny
Character(s): Harry Potter, Severus Snape, Hermione Granger
Rating: PG
Word Count: 100x300
Prompt(s): [info]snarry100 - Strange
Summary: Harry may be making some strange choices, or maybe just the right ones.
Disclaimer: I do not own or claim to own any characters, settings, locations, etc. from Harry Potter. All borrowed aspects of the above fandom are used purely for entertainment in a fanwork, and will be returned to their proper fandom and owners scratch, dent, and injury-free.
Author's Notes: Not beta'd, so all mistakes are entirely my own. I apologize for any strange word choices or syntax that I may have missed in this one. Everything was written with the use of Dragon, since I had wrist surgery last Friday and cannot type. Hopefully I caught all of the weirdness already. Can be read on its own, but is also a sequel in my Be My Shelter verse (starting with Shelter in a Storm).
