You can be the architect of your own happiness.

Like my mother used to say, I’m a predator. But I don’t have to be a killer.

"According to legend, Slytherin had built a hidden chamber in this castle, known as the  C h a m b e r   o f   S e c r e t s . Though shortly before departing, he sealed it until that time when his own true heir returned to the school. The heir alone would be able to open the chamber and unleash the horror within, and by so doing, purge the school of all those who, in Slytherin’s view, were unworthy to study magic.”
