Favorite Quotes From Harry Potter

I'm participating in today's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's prompt is:

Favorite Quotes From Harry Potter

I have a pretty large round up of quotes about books and reading that I feature on my Weekly Words meme, but not very many quotes from books about other things.  So I wasn't really sure how to make this list, since I have no pool to draw from.  When in doubt, think about Harry Potter, right?  So here are my favorite quotes from each of the seven Potter books:

  1. I almost made my Top Ten Tuesday list an ode to Harry Potter. So many great quotes from those books. But, I only chose two and then chose other books too. My favorite quote that you listed is the first one. I feel like it's the motto to my life.

    1. Way to exercise discipline. It's hard for me not to make every single post an ode to Harry Potter.

    1. Me too! It's actually been a while since I've read them (2 years) so I'm itching to return to Hogwarts.

  3. Those are absolutely brilliant. I like that you balanced more lighthearted and funny with more sentimental ones. That one from Prisoner of Azkaban has always been one of my favorites though.

    1. Yeah, sometimes it's the funny lines that become my favorites. Agreed on that God people and death eaters quote. That one has always stuck with me.

  4. These are great quotes! I've always thought “Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?” to be so thought provoking.

    1. Yeah, it's kind of a metaphor for the whole story, I think. I imagined everything in my head while reading, but that doesn't make the experience any less real.

  5. I love the share my toilet quote! Ha! Great idea picking from a series. I couldn't narrow down my favorites from all the books I've read.

    1. I am extremely fond of Moaning Myrtle. Even if she is a bit obnoxious. Every line she spoke was comedic gold. :)
