the virgin suicides (1999)
I am not afraid to keep on living
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
“My favorite children’s book is about a little prince who came to Earth from a distant asteroid. He meets a pilot whose plane has crashed in a desert. The little prince teaches the pilot many things but mainly about love. My father always told me I was like the little prince. But after I met Adam, I realized I was the pilot all along…”
I’ve been everywhere and seen everything and done everything.
Harry Potter Etymology | Patronus Charm (“Expecto Patronum”)
Patronus means “protector”, “guardian”, or simply “patron” in Latin, specifically reflecting the entire role that the Patronus Charm plays. In archaic Latin, it meant “father”, which is very interesting, considering that Harry Potter’s Patronus is the same as his father’s Patronus and Animagus form, a stag. The Latin word exspecto or expecto means “I look out for” or “I wait for”, thus the charm’s incantation roughly translates into “I await a protector.”
