"Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?"
-Albus Dumbledore

It felt only right to end this series with a Dumbledore quote seeing as he is the source of much of the wisdom the Harry Potter books impart. I take this quote as a comment on imagination for who is to say what is real? Sometimes the things I imagine seem more like real life than what actually happens to me. I believe that J. K. Rowling is saying that we should give credence to our imaginations and to enjoy them rather than discredit them. 

The same goes for our dreams and aspirations. Just because something is a concept at the moment, it does not mean that it will not one day come to fruition.

What dreams do you have which you wish were real? What did Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows teach you?
