Let me not to the marriage of true minds
admit impediments. Love is not love
which alters when it alteration finds,
or bends with the remover to remove.

Oh, no! It is an ever-fixed mark,
that looks on tempests and is never shaken.
It is the star to every wandering bark,
whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.

Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,

but bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no men ever loved.

[Sonet 116]

The Ravenclaw common room is located high up within a tower and known for its panoramic views of the school grounds. It is a large circular room filled with bookcases and blue furnishings. It is also one of the only common rooms to feature a statue of their house founder. The entrance requires no password but the solving of a riddle asked by a bronze eagle knocker. Incorrect answers result in having to wait outside for someone else to answer their riddle successfully. Once inside you can sit under the impressive starry domed ceiling and listen to the relaxing sounds of the wind whistling around the exterior of the tower windows.

The downfall of Voldemort, such a source of jubilation to the rest of the wizarding community, marked the beginning of a long stretch of loneliness and unhappiness for Remus.

His mother was now dead, and while Lyall, his father, was always delighted to see his son, Remus refused to endanger his father’s peaceful existence by returning to live with him. Remus now lived a hand-to-mouth existence, taking jobs that were far below his level of ability, always knowing that he would have to leave them before his pattern of growing sick once a month at the full moon was noticed by his workmates. - Pottermore

Book Quotes: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Harry looked away. He would willingly have split all the money in his Gringotts vault with the Weasleys, but he knew they would never take it.

Luna Lovegood - Why would I cry? by a-lise [x]

"…This was in contrast to the only Wizarding photograph on the walls, which was a picture of four Hogwarts students standing arm in arm, laughing at the camera. With a leap of pleasure, Harry recognized his father; his untidy black hair stuck up at the back like Harry’s and he, too, wore glasses. Beside him was Sirius, carelessly handsome, his slightly arrogant face so much younger and happier than Harry had ever seen it alive. To Sirius’s right stood Pettigrew, plump and watery-eyed, flushed at his pleasure at his inclusion in this coolest of gangs, with the admired rebels that James and Sirius had been. On James’s left was Lupin, even then a little shabby-looking, but he had the same air of delighted surprise at finding himself liked and included…"
