Harry Potter quotes

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good. To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure. Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real? Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory. Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears.
"After all this time?"
"Always," said Snape.
"Do you remember me telling you we are practicing non-verbal spells, Potter?"
"Yes," said Harry stiffly.
"Yes, sir."
"There's no need to call me "sir" Professor."
The words had escaped him before he knew what he was saying.
Just because you have the emotional range of a teaspoon doesn't mean we all have. Wit beyond measure is a man's greatest treasure. Mr. Moony presents his compliments to Professor Snape, and begs him to keep his abnormally large nose out of other people's business.
Mr. Prongs agrees with Mr. Moony, and would like to add that Professor Snape is an ugly git.
Mr. Padfoot would like to register his astonishment that an idiot like that ever became a professor.
Mr. Wormtail bids Professor Snape good day, and advises him to wash his hair, the slimeball.
"Death's got an Invisibility Cloak?" Harry interrupted again.
"So he can sneak up on people," said Ron. "Sometimes he gets bored of running at them, flapping his arms and shrieking..."
"Is it true that you shouted at Professor Umbridge?"
"Yes."
"You called her a liar?"
"Yes."
"You told her He Who Must Not Be Named is back?"
"Yes."
"Have a biscuit, Potter.
"I don't care!" Harry yelled at them, snatching up a lunascope and throwing it into the fireplace.
"I've had enough, I've seen enough, I want out, I want it to end, I don't care anymore!"
"You do care," said Dumbledore.
He had not flinched or made a single move to stop Harry demolishing his office. His expression was calm, almost detached.
"You care so much you feel as though you will bleed to death with the pain of it."
Not my daughter, you bitch! Percy wouldn't notice a joke if it danced naked in front of him wearing one of Dobby's hats. "You haven't got a letter on yours," George observed.
"I suppose she thinks you don't forget your name. But we're not stupid-we know we're called Gred and Forge.
You know, Minister, I disagree with Dumbledore on many counts... but you cannot deny he's got style... "Albus Severus," Harry said quietly, so that nobody but Ginny could hear, and she was tactful enough to pretend to be waving to Rose, who was now on the train, "you were named for two headmasters of Hogwarts. One of them was a Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew." Oh well... I'd just been thinking, if you had died, you'd have been welcome to share my toilet. "Now, you two – this year, you behave yourselves. If I get one more owl telling me you've – you've blown up a toilet or –"
"Blown up a toilet? We've never blown up a toilet."
"Great idea though, thanks, Mum."
Dumbledore says people find it far easier to forgive others for being wrong than being right. Fear of a name increases fear of the thing itself. He was my mum and dad's best friend. He's a convicted murderer, but he's broken out of wizard prison and he's on the run. He likes to keep in touch with me, though...keep up with my news...check if I'm happy... Of all the trees we could've hit, we had to get one that hits back. Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak! "Why were you lurking under our window?"
"Yes - yes, good point, Petunia! What were you doing under our windows, boy?"
"Listening to the news," said Harry in a resigned voice.
His aunt and uncle exchanged looks of outrage.
"Listening to the news! Again?"
"Well, it changes every day, you see," said Harry.
"Ginny!" said Mr. Weasley, flabbergasted. "Haven't I taught you anything? What have I always told you? Never trust anything that can think for itself if you can't see where it keeps its brain?" There are some things you can't share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them. What happened down in the dungeons between you and Professor Quirrell is a complete secret, so, naturally the whole school knows. "Ah, music," he said, wiping his eyes. "A magic beyond all we do here!” "Does it hurt?" The childish question had escaped Harry's lips before he could stop it.
"Dying? Not at all," said Sirius. "Quicker and easier than falling asleep.
There is no good and evil, there is only power and those too weak to seek it. "So top grade's O for 'Outstanding,'" Hermione was saying, "and then there's A-"
"No, E," George corrected her, "E for 'Exceeds Expectations.' And I've always thought Fred and I should've got E in everything, because we exceeded expectations just by turning up for the exams.
The mind is a complex and many-layered thing, Potter... or at least, most minds are... Finally, the truth. Lying with his face pressed into the dusty carpet of the office where he had once thought he was learning the secrets of victory, Harry understood at last that he was not supposed to survive. "Your aunt and uncle will be proud, though, won't they?" said Hermione as they got off the train and joined the crowd thronging toward the enchanted barrier. "When they hear what you did this year?"
"Proud?" said Harry. "Are you crazy? All those times I could've died, and I didn't manage it? They'll be furious..."
I can teach you how to bottle fame, brew glory, even put a stopper on death. "I know [Umbridge] by reputation and I'm sure she's not a Death Eater..."
"She's foul enough to be one..."
"Yes, but the world isn't split into good people and Death Eaters."
Lockhart'll sign anything if it stands still long enough. By Gryffindor, the bravest were
Prized far beyond the rest;
For Ravenclaw, the cleverest
Would always be the best;
For Hufflepuff, hard workers were
Most worthy of admission;
And power-hungry Slytherin
Loved those of great ambition.
Hearing voices no one else can hear isn't a good sign, even in the wizarding world. Enter, stranger, but take heed
Of what awaits the sin of greed,
For those who take, but do not earn,
Must pay most dearly in their turn.
So if you seek beneath our floors
A treasure that was never yours,
Thief, you have been warned, beware
Of finding more than treasure there.
"Hide them all, then. Keep her – them – safe. Please."
"And what will you give me in return, Severus?"
"In – in return? Anything."
Why, dear boy, we don't send wizards to Azkaban just for blowing up their aunts. If you made a better rat than a human, it's not much to boast about, Peter. "Our Headmaster is taking a short break", said Professor McGonagall, pointing at the Snape-shaped hole in the window. His eyes are as green as a fresh pickled toad,
His hair is as dark as a blackboard.
I wish he was mine, he's really divine,
The hero who conquered the Dark Lord.
If he doesn't stop trying to save your life he's going to kill you. Professor Kettleburn, our Care of Magical Creatures teacher, retired at the end of last year in order to enjoy more time with his remaining limbs. Time is Galleons, little brother.
