It was not, as some people supposed, that she did not know that the Nargles were not real. But it became easier, if you believed in Nargles, to believe in all kinds of other things and so, to remain serene and unruffled even in the most trying of circumstances.

If you can’t believe in six impossible things about the world, her mother would say, how will you ever believe all the impossible things that people will do?

They could change; one only needed to give them a gentle push in the right direction. Luna, out of all of them, remained the gentle reminder that there is always hope, even when evil seems to overshadow everything, if only one knew how to believe in impossibilities.
