HUFFLEPUFF: “There may come a time in your life when the universe will ask you to do something fantastically foolish for the person you love. I pray that you rise to this challenge with daring and grace. That you always recognize the wisdom in risking anything and everything for the good of your heart.” –Beau Taplin (A Most Unwise Thing)
