‘There’s always room for a story that can transport people to another place.’— J.K.Rowling

I had mentioned in my earlier post that Harry Potter is something which has the potential of an entire post.Today ( I randomly keep checking stuff related to the series on the net ), I was checking quotes of all the characters in the series.It made me realise that Harry Potter is not just a book or a movie series, it is a lesson ( that makes it all the more better because there aren’t many lessons that are as interesting).I mean,seriously,you think about it.I have sooo many favourite quotes and I can’t describe how amazing an author J.K.Rowling is to have thought about all these things! Every one of them makes you think about the idea behind it,it makes you take a lesson out of it.

So here I am making a small list of some of my favourite quotes (I’ll try to make it as small as possible,that is!).This is only because these are ideas and beliefs which I think will give everyone something.Some are funny,some are not,some just make you realise something which you knew all along and some are just there because I like them.

‘It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to our enemies,but just as much to stand up to our friends.’—Albus DumbledoreImage

‘Things we lose have a way of coming back to us,if not always in the way we expect’—Luna LovegoodImage

‘The world isn’t split into good people and death eaters.We have all got both light and dark inside us.What matters is the power we choose to act on.That’s who we really are.’—Sirius BlackImage

‘Humans have a knack for choosing precisely the things that are worst for them.’—Albus Dumbledore

I love this one:

‘Do not pity the dead,Harry.Pity the living and ,above all,those who live without love.’—Albus Dumbledore

‘Proud? Are you crazy? All those times I could’ve died,and  didn’t manage it? They’ll be furious…’—Harry PotterImage

This is probably the best quote after we realise Snape’s importance (something that we never have even an inkling of till The Prince’s Tale):

‘Albus Severus..you were named for two headmasters of Hogwarts.One of them was a Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew.’—Harry Potter

Another one that I absolutely love!!:

‘After all this time?’…’Always.’—Severus SnapeImage

I have never looked at ‘always’ and not thought about this!

‘We’re with you whatever happens’—Ron WeasleyImage

‘Just because you have the emotional range of a teaspoon doesn’t mean we all have.’—Hermione GrangerImage

‘We could have all been killed-or worse-expelled.’-Hermione    ‘She needs to get her priorities right.’-Ron

‘I’ll join you when hell freezes over.’—Neville LongbottomImage

‘My father will hear about this.’—Draco MalfoyImage

‘We know we are called Gred and Forge.’—George Weasley


‘For instance ,this new idea that You-Know-Who can kill from a single glance from his eyes.That’s a basilisk,listeners.One simple test:check whether the thing staring at you has got legs.If it has,its safe to look into its eyes,although if it is You-Know Who,that’s still likely to be the last thing you ever do.’—Fred Weasley

You have just got to love those two!!!

And this one (the best) is something I found on the net…

‘Harry Potter is about confronting fears,finding inner strength and doing what is right in the face of adversity.Twilight is about how important it is to have a boyfriend.’—-Andrew Futral.

There are lots more but it will take a lot of posts to get them down.You are free to post your favourite ones in the comments!

  1. Okay! Take a deep breath and get ready to read by far (à la Ekam Eveileb- ask Shravni) the longest comment you’ve received on your blog.
    Umm.. a technical detail first, I thought the quote abt Harry Potter and Twilight was by Stephen King. I might be wrong but just check it once.
    Secondly, 7th blog about HP! On purpose??
    Needless to say, all the quotes are amazing. JKR is not The Queen for nothing. 😉
    You really should’ve included more quotes by our beloved Gred and Forge.
    One of my favourites is “What are Fred and I? Next door neighbours?”

    • I know! I wanted to include many more but it would have been too long.Secondly,the quote is not by Stephen King (“Both Rowling and Meyer, they’re speaking directly to young people. … The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can’t write worth a darn. She’s not very good.” ),this one is.And 7th blog!!! I had no idea…major coincidence.Something that happens to a true Potterhead??
