‘Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.’
– J.K. Rowling (The Harry Potter Series)

I’m not 100% sure if this is the book or film phrasing, but it remains one of my all time favourite Harry Potter quotes. I don’t know how to explain why I love it so much, but I think the quote stands alone without any explanation. I like how profound and simple it is and the way it turns a negative into something optimistic. 🙂
I thought this seemed like an appropriate choice for Quoting the Quill as the Christmas and New Year celebrations are drawing to a close. As we all face the reality of a cold damp January and the prospect of returning to our respective responsibilities, whether education or work, it can be easy to slip into feeling glum. But never fear, Dumbledore is here! And he is telling you to turn on the light, literally or metaphorically. 😉
