It contains a force that is at once more wonderful and more terrible than death, than human intelligence, than forces of nature.

It was your heart that saved you.”
J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

She had made her g’s the same way he did : he searched through the letter for every one of them, and each felt like a friendly little wave glimpsed from behind a veil.
