One of my favorite character in the Harry Potter series is Sirius Black, and fortunately he has many awesome quotes throughout the movies and books. Here are 3 of my favorites.
“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.”— Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
This quote is definitely high on my list. It is so true, we’re all capable of good and evil but we must act on what’s right. It’s a reminder that even when I’m feeling down, it’s my choices that define me, and I’d say I try to make the good choice most of the time.
“The ones who love us never really leave us, you can always find them in here.”— Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
I love this one because it gives me hope. I don’t know what happens after this, but it’s comforting to know that our loved ones are always with us. Whether it’s in spirit or in memory. It makes loss feel a lot less scary.
“If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”— Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
This is such a good piece of advice, and it’s true. If you want to know the true nature of a person observe how they treat those who could be considered inferior. That is the fastest way to reveal whether a person is kind or cruel. I follow this advice all the time, and it’s never steered me wrong.
