Wednesday Vignette: Magnolia stellata
“Peace has to be created, in order to be maintained.
It is the product of Faith, Strength, Energy, Will,
Sympathy, Justice, Imagination,
and the triumph of principle.
It will never be achieved by passivity and quietism.”
“I say to you all, once again –
– in the light of Lord Voldemort’s return,
we are only as strong as we are united,
as weak as we are divided.
Lord Voldemort’s gift for spreading discord
and enmity is very great.
We can fight it only by showing
an equally strong bond of friendship and trust.
Differences of habit and language
are nothing at all if our aims are identical
and our hearts are open.”
“Your brothers are the foolish ones
for not seeing the strength in beautiful things.”

“Where I was born and where and how I have lived
is unimportant. It is what I have done
with where I have been
that should be of interest.”
