Just because you’re naked doesn’t mean you’re sexy. Just because you’re cynical doesn’t mean you’re cool. Tom Robbins
Here is his portion on a website called Famous Authors which also has a listing of his books.
From the movie Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011), this is part of a speech given by the great actor Michael Gambon, who is so famous in England he has a corner named after him on the Top Gear test track.
“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.” Professor Albus Dumbledore

This is a very small part of his overall speech but I think it goes to the heart of the movies and the deep truth in life. Words are everyone’s most important magic. So much can be accomplished with them, if placed in the right order, at the right time they can give hope, they can inspire, they can change the course of history. Even if the history is just the history of an individual. For good or bad your words, even your lack of words can break or heal a heart. So be careful how you use your words, guard them, choose them, temper them with wisdom, but always realize the power of your words.

Welcome To My Thoughts, Hungry?
just another plaid-wearin' java-sippin' girl
Where strange fact and stranger fiction collide
Probably a human... most definitely tall-ish and ranty.
Rantings of an Irrational Mind
You say you want an evolution...
Fears, worries, and screaming pathos of a college drone
We can rebuild him. We have the technology... Drier. Hilariouser. More satirical than before.
Welcome to my world.
