Memorable lines

The full list of these fouls, however, has never been made available to the wizarding public. It is the Department's view that witches and wizards who see the list "might get ideas".

I was fortunate enough to gain access to the documents relating to these fouls while researching this bok and can confirm that no public good can come of their publication.
