Footnotes is a brand new link-up hosted by Emily @ Stranger Worlds & Ashley @ [oddly novel title] and it's especially for quotation obsessees. Each month they will post a prompt and participants will share a quote that fits the prompt as well as share their thoughts on it in any way they wish.
The 1st prompt (it's an easy one so don't worry): A quotation from an author.
“If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.” - Sirius Black from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
Turns out that it wasn't so easy - there are so many quotes that I love so it was quite difficult to narrow down. I decided to go with a quote from my all time favorite series, which didn't make it that much easier since J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter is so quotable. Anyway, I decided to go with the one above which is definitely one of the best, if not more important quotes from the fourth book in the series. It truly applies to real life and it's a good way to judge a person's character by how they treat others that they perceive to be lesser than themselves and have nothing to offer them. In the scene in the novel, Hermione is upset by the reason Barty Crouch fired Winky, the House Elf, and Ron is irritated by how she keeps going on about House Elves, but Sirius agrees with Hermione and speaks the line in question. It's not necessarily a new idea, but still a powerful one to consider in many contexts.
