Quotes, HP, Noticed
Everyone of you would have thought what happened to the hyperactive Harry Potter fan inside me, no updates in the previous post on what happened to the Deathly Hallows I have started to chase last week.. I have decided to write a part of post on Harry Potter experience of me(I am finished with the books.. yay 😀 :D)… its after the quotes below.. 😀
I am not a quoty person. But there are some which always makes me to think, whether I act or not is another matter 🙂 Here are some when I digged by company mailbox after a long time.
This is the one I found impressive and I hope I will see this everyday in the morning:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream.” — Mark Twain. American
This one from the genius, and he is right also:
“If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.” — Albert Einstein
Here are some from Colin and caught me right away:
“Beware of people who work for their bosses and not for the team”
“People who throw up the names of the bosses in every sentence, they are the most dangerous kind of people to work with more dangerous than your enemies”
Here is the one from the philosopher Plato,
“Wise people talk because they have something to say; fools, because they have to say something.”
There are few quotes from the anonymous also:
“The easiest thing to find is fault.”
“ Beware of people who believe in only finding fault is their best way of demonstrating their intelligence”
And we can’t disagree with anything said above and they explain truth in few lines, sorry, words.
Hurray, I have completed the Harry Potter Series within the time I have set for myself. I wanted to finish them before the release of Half Blood Prince in India and I completed one day before itself 😀 I always doubted whether I have time and capability to read a book at present. I have bought lot of books of various titles and genre(The White tiger, India 2020, Discovery of India) previously but didn’t read a page of any of them. But by the month of May, I have read a book tag in the Tamil blog of Divyapriya. For every question thrown(One book that changed my life, The book you have read more than once, One book you would want on dessert island, One book that made you laugh, One book that made me cry) the answer of her is Harry Potter. If it makes such an effect on one person means then something must be there, I thought.
So when I went for the book store first time and I bought first 2 parts. I always kept the next book in reserve fearing I may finish the book anytime :)(confidence friends, confidence, ha ha ha :D) When I took the first book there was 7 weeks for the HP 6 movie to release, so I thought a book a week will do. But it took me 10 days to finish the first book. Its only 200+ pages and I feared whether I will finish. But the 2nd book caught my Imagination and that is the book which made to read through the other books in a jiffy. It took only 3 days finsh the 2nd book. From then onwards I finished every book within 6 days 🙂 I am amazed by the way J.K.Rowling has imagined many of the things. Hats off to her. She has created a magical world and those Quidditch, 9 3/4 platform, Floo network, Horcruxes, leglimens, Occulumency, Pensieve, dementors, Potions, Parseltongue, Deathly hallows, those 4 houses and the explanations given.. everything was awesome. It doesn’t seemed to be every book was written separately. It seemed to be like all the 7 books were written already and released one by one. Such is the continuity shown by her. Wonderful.
You can’t stop yourself feel excited whenever Harry, Ron and Hermione defeats Voldemort or feel sorry when a close memeber to them dies. I loved the characters of Fred and George Weasley and also had a great liking for Nevile Longbottom towards the end. He proved himself as a true Gryffindor. Luna Lovegood was also an another likeable character. And who can forget the Severus Snape. He is the masterstroke character of J.K.Rowling.
I have seen the movies by rushing in my PC and I didn’t think I will love them as I am loving the books. But for sure I am going to watch the HP6 by next week. I love to read the books again and again. There are many heart pounding moments and I always loved the talking episode of Dumbledore and Harry. I will review the books(in 3 parts… 1-3, then 4 and 5, and then 6 and 7) in the coming week 🙂
I don’t know what happened over the last week, there were only fewer posts posted by the friends. I think everybody were suffering from writer’s block. Before I came back to my home yesterday I have read most of the posts in my mobile. And today also there are not many posts and my dashboard shows that the last post is before 10 hours. What happened to you all???
PS: Till 2 days before, I didn’t have anything to write. But suddenly I am finding lot of things to write about. Hope you will find it interesting 🙂
PS 2: The next book I am reading is The Da Vinci Code. I thought of reading Lord of the Rings next, but postponed it till September just to avoid the crossover thoughts that may come from HP. Smita’s book reviews and Amit’s post on the books he finds best helping me a lot in choosing the books. And also I have made a note of all the books mentioned by you all. Thanks all!!!!!
