"Movies can be anything. They can be escape or they can be confrontation. It’s an incredibly malleable art form, which takes the best of every other art form — writing, music, performance, visual imagery. It’s such a complete art at it’s best. In terms of being on film sets, what I love about it is for anywhere between 20 and 260 days a band of complete strangers will come together and form a family, and will bring something beautiful and ordered out of that chaos." - Daniel Radcliffe, What I Love About Movies Vol. 1
“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
― Albert Einstein
“Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.”
― G.K. Chesterton
“Fear isn’t so difficult to understand. After all, weren’t we all frightened as children? Nothing has changed since Little Red Riding Hood faced the big bad wolf. What frightens us today is exactly the same sort of thing that frightened us yesterday. It’s just a different wolf.”
― Alfred Hitchcock
“Deeper meaning resides in the fairy tales told to me in my childhood than in the truth that is taught by life.”
― Friedrich von Schiller
In HBP, Snape is teaching and tells the class to turn to page 213, and read the first two paragraphs on the Cruciatus Curse. On a hunch I got up and pulled out my GoF book and turned to page 213. That is the page where Moody first tells the students about the Cruciatus Curse.
Freaky, Isnt it?
But also quite Brilliant.
