Tjolahopp tjolahej tjolahoppsansa!

'Ja, tiden går och man börjar bli gammal', sa Pippi. 'Fram på höstkanten fyller jag tio år, och då har man väl sett sina bästa dar'.

Att lära utan att göra

...är som att älska utan att röra. Tänk om det övriga skolsystemet kunde vara lite mer som förskolan.

Hela kroppen behövs

Ögon kan se och öron kan höra
Men händer vet bäst hur det känns att röra
Huden vet bäst när någon är nära
Hela kroppen behövs för att lära!

Hjärnan kan tänka och kanske förstå
Men benen vet bäst hur det är att gå
Ryggen vet bäst hur det känns att bära
Hela kroppen behövs för att lära!

Om vi skall lära oss nåt om vår jord
Så räcker det inte med bara ord
Vi måste komma den nära
Hela kroppen behövs för att lära!

The two men appeared out of nowhere, a few yards apart in the narrow, moonlit lane. For a second they stood quite still, wands directed at each other's chests; then, recognizing each other, they stowed their wands beneath their cloaks and started walking briskly in the same direction.

"News?" asked the taller of the two.

"The best," replied Severus Snape.

The lane was bordered on the left by wild, low-growing brambles, on the right by a high, neatly manicured hedge. The men's long cloaks flapped around their ankles as they marched.

"Thought I might be late," said Yaxley, his blunt features sliding in and out of sight as the branches of overhanging trees broke the moonlight. "It was a little trickier than I expected. But I hope he will be satisfied. You sound confident that your reception will be good?"

Snape nodded, but did not elaborate. They turned right, into a wide driveway that led off the lane. The high hedge curved into them, running off into the distance beyond the pair of imposing wrought-iron gates barring the men's way. Neither of them broke step:

In silence both raised their left arms in a kind of salute and passed straight through, as though the dark metal was smoke.

The yew hedges muffled the sound of the men's footsteps. There was a rustle somewhere to their right: Yaxley drew his wand again pointing it over his companion's head, but the source of the noise proved to be nothing more than a pure-white peacock, strutting majestically along the top of the hedge.
