Harry Potter

My favourite Harry Potter quotes

Because why not? It’ll be from books and movies both!

1. No need to call me sir, Professor.– Harry Potter, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (book)


I clearly remember the first time I read this utterly savage quote in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, I put my book down and went, “Oh, damnnnnnnn! That must have HURT!” And I still do. Every. Single. Time.

2. Turn to page 394.– Severus Snape, Prisoner of Azkaban (movie)

I love the way Alan Rickman delivered this dialogue, which resulted in it becoming one of the most legendary lines in the Harry Potter fandom.

3. We could have been killed, or worse, expelled.– Hermione Granger, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (book)

How 10-year-old Emma Watson (yeah, she was 10 at the time of shooting the movie) is excellent and made me laugh a lot. And I’m sure I’m not the only one!

4. We’ve got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are.– Sirius Black, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (book)

Sirius could have been a loyal Death Eater to Voldemort, inherit his family’s vast fortune and be the perfect son in general, if he had chosen the Dark side. However, he did not do any of that. He remained loyal to his best friends, godson and The Order of the Phoenix until his last breath and fiercely hated The Dark Lord and his followers. I find that really admirable.

5. Working hard is important. But there is something that matters more: believing in yourself.– Harry Potter, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (movie)

This is so true. It really speaks to me. I can’t verbally express how much I adore this quote. If you don’t believe in yourself, you will immediately lose the will to work hard.

The Marauders

Hey people!

Being the insane Marauders fan I am, I stumbled upon a song in Marauders playlist on Spotify which really fits them in their Year One at Hogwarts. It’s ‘Home’ by Phillip Phillips.

Here’s a snippet of the song:

Hold on to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave (wave) is stringing us along

Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble, it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found.

Just know you’re not alone
‘Cause I’m gonna make this place your home

I imagine that first-year James is singing this to Sirius, Remus and Peter (who I personally think was neglected by his parents because of a much more successful sibling). According to me, James was the only Marauder who was not emotionally or physically scarred when he came to Hogwarts, because of his rather pampered life as the only son of the wealthy inventor of Sleekeazy’s Hair Potion, Fleamont Potter. Sirius was almost certainly neglected by his parents before he came to school because he held his family’s pure-blood mania in contempt. Remus was affected by lycanthropy at age 4, as you may have read in one of my posts. And I’ve already told you the reason why I think this song is also a comfort to Peter.

P.S: You guys better appreciate this post, because you know I’m very busy with exams. I only did this one because an idea popped up in my head when I was doing nothing in Science class.
