Quote by J.K. Rowling
Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much.
This quote is from the opening sentence of J.K. Rowlingâ€™s "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone." It establishes the Dursleys as ordinary, conventional people who take pride in their normalcy. Rowling introduces the contrasting world of magic, which the Dursleys are completely unaware of, emphasizing the upcoming clash between their closed-mindedness and the extraordinary events that will disrupt their perceived normality. This quote sets the tone for the story to come and foreshadows the Dursleys' role as the stifling, ignorant foil to the magical elements in Harry Potter's life.
Think about what people are doing on Facebook today. They're keeping up with their friends and family, but they're also building an image and identity for themselves, which in a sense is their brand. They're connecting with the audience that they want to connect to. It's almost a disadvantage if you're not on it now.
