I stumbled upon this lovely little gift shop today called Curiosa, in Toronto Queen West district, which sold all kinds of trinkets from games to books to cards to Harry Potter merchandise.

Stepping into the commode I found a sign on the wall with a little jar of chalk next to it, saying:

Please leave a message on the walls or ceiling! Your choice…

Amid the dozens of Harry Potter quotes, this turned out to be a very wholesome washroom wall 🙂

Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light

Of course it’s happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean it’s not real?

If you’re searching for that one person who will change your life, look in the mirror

I bequeath myself to the dirt to grow from the grass I love. If you want me again look for me under your bootsoles. – Walt Whitman

It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live

A Hufflepuff was here

I adumbledore you!
