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.
