Read the movie, saw the book. king.gif

The quote has to do with the gutting of society by the cheese merchants who posess the tiny clay pots that hold all the lint. As long as they exist, the universe will always be fuzzy and dusty souls will walk the after life insearch of the Karmic lint brushes.

Hmmmmm...... to go back to the first book...Harry being new to Hogwarts and wizardary in General,merely was brainwashed about a comment that Ron had brought up prior to the sorting hat "there isnt a student that hasnt turned bad that has not been in slytherin"
this statement i believe started a chain of events that even had the sorting hat swearing up and down the griffindor was the wrong house....
Yet as Harry grew and realized what his potential was becoming(one heck of a wizard wink.gif ) His abilities as dumbldore had told him and troubled Harry, wasnt that Voldemort and him were alike ....they posessed the same skills...yet Voldemort chose a dark path....where as Harry has used his unforseen powers for good...

As you get deeper within the books you will see where Harry has many an oppurtunity to turn the skills he now has into a weapon of evil....

Yet time and time again...through blind luck or just fate...Harry outwits voldemort over/over....

Harry had the full option to side /w voldemort in "the sorcerers stone" (or philosophers stone..as the original book was titled) nothing would make him happier than to bring back his mother,father...(his first choice) think ya know the outcome of this....
see where im going smile.gif

simply put.....what seperates us from all other living things is our ability to make a "choice" ... our gift of free will

I love Harry Potter.
Read all the books and watched the movies so many times, know the lines.
I always felt that quote from the movie for me meant we all have choices that can determine who and what we become, and how important it is to weigh those choices. Each choice can take you down different roads. And all roads lead somewhere...

We have all the books. When Order of the Phoenix came out, we had four bookmarks going at once, and as soon as one person set it down, another family member picked it up.

I'm looking forward to the 3rd movie. I hope J.K. Rowling puts out the next book at a time when I'm not in the middle of a semester at college. When I read her books, I like to sit down and read them as much as possible, until I'm done. I'm not as particular about how I watch the movies, but Rowling is such a descriptive writer, that I like to get totally engrossed in her stories smile.gif

^^

taps finger...er....yeah....my wife loves to read out loud and her scottish accent keeps my ears wanting the next sentance.....it is ironic ...i fought reading the series till i heard it read...i was engrossed on the spot, and had to know what happend next!!...My daughter (now 10) and my wife would take turns reading....both have very soft voices but hold you on every word.... i dunno what it is to see your child read a book with such conviction that you feel part of it....
once and again a word will pop up my daughter stuggles /w only to find my wife sharing the meaning and the pronunciation.....the movies themselves just for me give me insight to the true names...like how many times did you pronounce or read herminoes name different till you knew ..... (Her-my-knee).... little things like that ...

A year and a 4 months ago I went to Alnwick Castle and Gloucheshire Abbey two of the places Harry Potter was filmed at. It actually took 4 different places to make the first two movies.
The third movie has places around Glencoe in it. They were looking for some place a bit more rugged in terraine and Glencoe Scotland fit the bill.
I have a picture of me in the hallway at Glouchesshire where they went into the Gryfendorph common house. There isn't really a door where the lady asks for the password. There is a wall there. Amazinng how they do that in the movie. I also have a picture of me pointing at the window where the spiders were supposidly going thru the window.
Amazing!
