Being different isn't a bad thing, it means you're brave enough to be yourself. When I read this quote when I was about nine years old, I decided to live by this quote and be different. Luna has always been my favorite character along with the twins.
The books that I read leave a mark on my soul. I feel like every time you read a good book you get more interesting, smart, brave etc. Every book also carries its own lesson that makes you a better person.
Harry Potter was saved by a mother's love more than once. Harry may not of had his mother but he had a lot of comfort from mother like figures. Whenever Harry needed comfort it was always from a mother figure.
