According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves.

DISCOVERY: that the addition of “Harry” to almost any Plato quote makes it seem legitimately like a nugget of wisdom out of the mouth of Albus Dumbledore.

"Death is not the worst that can happen to men, Harry."

"Harry, good actions give strength to ourselves and inspire good actions in others."

"He who commits injustice is ever made more wretched than he who suffers it, Harry."

"Harry, how can you prove whether at this moment we are sleeping, and all our thoughts are a dream; or whether we are awake, and talking to one another in the waking state?"

"Harry, astronomy at all events compels the soul to look upwards, and draws it from the things of this world to the other."

"He was a wise man who invented beer, Harry."

laughing forever at the fact that plato wrote this:

“the notion that Patroclus was the beloved one is a foolish error into which Aeschylus has fallen, for Achilles was surely the fairer of the two, fairer also than all the other heroes; and, as Homer informs us, he was still beardless, and younger far”

which is pretty much just saying

"Aeschylus is so dumb. obviously patroclus topped and achilles was the bottom because he’s prettier"
