I was watching Harry Potter: The Sorcerer’s Stone tonight for the very first time and found one quote to be very profound. It comes as Dumbledore discusses the dangers of the mirror to Harry.
Dumbledore: It does not do to dwell on dreams, Harry, and forget to live.
I won’t bore you with the significance of why I found this quote so profound to myself, but the message is apparent and enlightening to anyone who has set high and lofty goals with great aspirations to only forget the beauty of the present and to live in it. Carpe diem.
