	The following are sample passages from Slytherin's journals:<lb/>
    <quote>Refining <foreign lang="spl" render="italic">Legilimency</foreign>. I believe I have discovered the secret of doing more than parsing thought. I may now twist memories to create visions.</quote>
    <quote>A quarrel today between my students and those mudbloods allowed in by Hufflepuff. It may become necessary to withhold the teaching of <foreign lang="spl" render="italic">Crucio</foreign> until the final year of studies. Hufflepuff has suggested that the matter should be brought before the Wizards' Council and wants to expel young Lucian.
    I will talk to Godric about instituting an internal court for trials concerning student matters. Expulsion should be a matter of last resort, for if we do not train these bright young talents, they may be vulnerable to Muggle courts and burning.</quote>
