I'm back with a quote from one of the wisest wizards ever created by an author. During my second viewing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, I slipped my writing notebook and pen out of my purse, and wrote down some of Professor Dumbledore's advice to Harry near the very end of the movie:
"Words are, in my most humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic."
Yes! Yes! That's why this internet community of writers and book lovers exists. That's also why we can't turn off our dreams of writing something that will bring a little "magic" into someone else's life.
Sure this series is all about witchcraft and wizardry, spells and wands, but ironically, every bit of magic stuffed between the covers of every volume was created with WORDS.
J.K. Rowling's characters are so well done that I had to remind myself the credit for this bit of wisdom goes to her and not my favorite white-haired wizard.
So use this quote as inspiration. The key word is inexhaustible, which means that no matter how many books have already been written, there is still enough magic left in the world for you to write yours. Go and find it!
What magic words (quotes) inspire you to push through the hard times?
