Quote by Ilka Chase
Wart hogs should sue for libel. It is a terrible name and they are fine fellows and devoted family men and it is rare to see one by himself the little woman and the kiddies are usually close at hand.
This quote humorously suggests that the name "wart hogs" unjustly portrays these animals in a negative light. The explanation emphasizes that wart hogs are actually friendly creatures, dedicated to their families, and rarely seen without their loved ones nearby. By implying that they should sue for libel, the quote playfully highlights the misconception and perceived unfairness associated with their name. Overall, it presents the idea that labeling can lead to unjust judgments and may not accurately reflect the nature of those being labeled.
Hermione had taken his hand again and was gripping it tightly. He could not look at her, but returned the pressure, now taking deep, sharp gulps of the night air, trying to steady himself, trying to regain control. He should have brought something to give them, and he had not thought of it, and every plant in the graveyard was leafless and frozen. But Hermione raised her wand, moved it in a circle through the air, and a wreath of Christmas roses blossomed before them. Harry caught it and laid it on his parent's grave.As soon as he stood up he wanted to leave: He did not think he could stand another moment there. He put his arm around Hermione's shoulders, and she put hers around his waist, and they turned in silence and walked away through the snow, past Dumbledore's mother and sister, back toward the dark church and the out-of-sight kissing gate.
