For all those who fought bravely this day 19 years ago, to those that lived, may they live well and happy, and for those that died, may they rest in peace.
This day is not just to remember those who died, but to remember what they died for.
Love, loyalty, friendships and family stands above all, and to attain happiness there’s a need for sacrifice.
Sometimes, the good die young so the others can live longer. The ones who die for us, live through us.
They will always be in our hearts forever.
I raise my wand to Severus Snape, Fred Weasley, Remus Lupin, Nymphadora Tonks, Colin Creevey, Lavender Brown and the Fallen Fifty.

“[H]e was such a terrific actor, and that was such a terrific character that he played. And it was a joy to be with him. We used to laugh together because we ran out of reaction shots. They were always – when everything had been done and the children were finished, they would turn the camera around and we’d have to do various reaction shots of amazement or sadness and things. And we used to say we’d got to about number 200-and-something and we’d run out of knowing what to do when the camera came around on us. But he was a joy.” — Maggie Smith on Alan Rickman [x

I wish I’d known when I was younger that it would be okay. The world is such a scary place when you’re young and if I could go back and give myself advice, I’d say, “Don’t be so nervous about everything”. But then, we’re all nervous for most of our lives, really, aren’t we? I think that inside every one of us there’s somebody of about age five crying and desperate… and that’s particularly so for actors, because these days the film industry on the whole does not employ elderly people. - Maggie Smith
