What's YourFavourite HPQuote?

Recommended Posts

Something that always makes me smile is when people include their favourite Harry Potter quote in their signature or profile. It's particularly fun when it's not one that people often quote because I can go 'oh yeah, that happened!'.

 

That being said, I'm hard pressed to pick a favourite of my own. Mine are often the funny moments like Lee's quidditch commentary or Harry and Ron discussing Fred's left buttock. I do have one in my HOL profile though that means a great deal to me because I thought of it at a really emotional moment in my own life: 'What appeared to be fine golden chains wove around the pictures linking them together, but after examining them for a minute or so, Harry realised that the chains were actually one word repeated a thousand times in golden ink: friends ... friends ... friends ...'-Deathly Hallows

 

Do you have a favourite quote or passage? Lots of favourites? I'd love to hear them.

"You're expecting to much of yourself.[•••] For a thirteen - year - old wizard,even an indistinct Patronus is a huge achievement." - Prisoner of Azkaban- Professor Lupin talking to Harry.

 

I like this quote because it is inspiring.  Harry pushed himself a little bit and through determination and perseverance, he achieved what he wanted to achieve. He could have given up trying to cast a patronus but despite the unpleasant effects the Boggart had on him, he still kept trying. It's also a reminder that any difficult patches we might go through to achieve our goals can make us stronger and sometimes we can exceed other people's expectations of us.

My favorite quote comes from Deathly Hallows. I think we're so used to the scene where Dumbledore tells Snape he has to be the one to kill him being so full of heartbreak and angst, that we seldom remember what Snape's initial response actually was:

 

Quote

Snape raised his eyebrows and his tone was sardonic as he asked, “Are you intending to let him kill you?”


“Certainly not. You must kill me.”
There was a long silence, broken only by an odd clicking noise. Fawkes the phoenix was gnawing a bit of cuttlebone.


“Would you like me to do it now?” asked Snape, his voice heavy with irony. “Or would you like a few moments to compose an epitaph?"
