In honor of my finally seeing the last Harry Potter flick, I have decided to list all those important things I have learned from the series:
10. Snakes are bad.
9. Giant spiders are not to be trusted.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets8. Rock cakes really are hard as a rock.
7. It's not a good idea to get your wand tied up in a knot.
6. Keep your friends close.
Sirius Black, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire5. Blowing up your aunt like a balloon may not get you in trouble with the government, but defending your own life, along with the life your cousin, will. (Hmm... Sounds like the Israeli Government)
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix4. Progress for the sake of progress must be discouraged.
Delores Umbridge, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix3. A loyal friend can be more valuable than courage.
Cedric Diggory, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire2. It may take courage to stand up to your enemies, but takes even more courage to stand up to your friends.
Luna Lovegood, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone1. Help will always be given [at Hogwart's] to those who ask.
