Best Harry Potter Quotes to Inspire You

Some months back a friend of mine who happens to be an avid reader shared a Harry Potter meme with me on WA. And I didn’t get it, because, despite the popularity of the Harry Potter series, I had not read it. I had not even watched the movies and I was clueless about anything related to Potter. So, there was no way, I would decipher the meme and have a laugh.

Fast forward a month or so, I was going through a reader’s block of sorts. I was unable to stick to any serious reads at length. So, I decided to give the Harry Potter books a read. I think that was a great decision. While I was immersed in reading it, my mind was totally in a different reality. I stopped bothering about the trivial everyday issues. That to me is the hallmark of a great read. There is a quote about reading that I find very resonating here -

‘Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to live where we are.’

I have read the first four books of the Harry Potter series and I am onto reading the fifth one and I can say this out loud - these books took me places. These books don’t just take you into a world of magic, spells, and adventure. There is so much more to it. It dwells on friendship, loyalty, camaraderie, taking risks, and more. No wonder how popular the Harry Potter series is. And contrary to the popular belief that this series is for kids only, I think, readers irrespective of their age can enjoy it.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the Harry Potter books I have read so far.

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”

“The truth." Dumbledore sighed. "It is a beautiful and terrible thing, and should therefore be treated with great caution.

“Fear of a name increases fear of the thing itself.”

It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”

“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”

“You think the dead we loved truly ever leave us? You think that we don't recall them more clearly in times of great trouble?”

“What you fear most of all is —fear. Very wise...”

“If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”

“It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.”

“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.”

“Understanding is the first step to acceptance, and only with acceptance can there be recovery.”

“Curiosity is not a sin... But we should exercise caution with our curiosity... yes, indeed.”


Are you a Potter fan? Does any of these quotes resonate with you or make you pause and ponder? I would love to know, so do leave a comment below and let me know.
