10 Favorite Harry Potter Quotes ~ Ten On Tuesday

Day 30 of "2013 Ultimate Blog Challenge" : Ten On Tuesday: 10 Favorite Harry Potter Quotes


And it's another brand new Tuesday here! Time for a brand new "Ten On Tuesday"! Hope you enjoyed going through my 10 Favorite English TV Shows last week. This week, it's time for one of my all-time favorite books - the Harry Potter series.

It is said that authors who connect with their readers the most, are also the ones who are quoted the most. J. K. Rowling is perhaps one of the most quoted authors I've read. Here are my 10 most favorite quotes from the her Harry Potter books.


  1. ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

  2. "Do you remember me telling you we are practicing non-verbal spells, Potter?"
    "Yes," said Harry stiffly.
    "Yes, sir."
    "There's no need to call me 'sir' Professor."

    ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

  3. "Death's got an Invisibility Cloak?" Harry interrupted again.
    "So he can sneak up on people," said Ron. "Sometimes he gets bored of running at them, flapping his arms and shrieking..."

    ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

  4. "I don't believe it! I don't believe it! Oh, Ron, how wonderful! A prefect! That's everyone in the family!"
    "What are Fred and I, next door neighbours?"

    ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

  5. "Dumbledore says people find it far easier to forgive others for being wrong than being right."

    ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

  6. "The thing about growing up with Fred and George," said Ginny thoughtfully, "is that you sort of start thinking anything's possible if you've got enough nerve."

    ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

  7. "Youth can not know how age thinks and feels. But old men are guilty if they forget what it was to be young."

    ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

  8. "What happened down in the dungeons between you and Professor Quirrell is a complete secret, so, naturally the whole school knows."

    ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

  9. "I hope you're pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed - or worse, expelled. Now if you don't mind, I'm going to bed."

    ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

  10. "Things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, if not always in the way we expect."

    ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

There you go. Some funny ones and some thought-provoking ones. What are your favorite quotes from the Harry Potter series?

That's an awesome list Kaddu. Had fun reading it.

Psych Babbler said...

Favourite quotes from HP??? Geez! That's like asking to choose how many times a day I'd like to breathe! Almost everything with Fred, George and Ron has to be in my list...plus most of what you mentioned plus others I remember along the way...

I like the quote where Lupin explains to Harry about fearing fear itself with regards to he dementors.

the little princess said...

hari puttar has not really been my favorite, but I loved these collection of quotes u came up! so last day of UBC tomorrow, eh?

Shilpa Garg said...

This was like a refresher course. Enjoyed reading all these famous quotes after a long time. My fav are 1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th, 8th, 9th and 10th! :D

Reema Sahay said...

Full toss for me. I have never read a single HP book or watched a single HP movie. Ya you heard it right.
But I loved the quotes 1,7 and 10, while 8 was funny :-)
Note: I started the first one Philosopher's stone or something because of so much hype all around me but couldn't read much.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Hahahaha! Thanks Richa! :D

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Thanks Avada! And luckily, I posted it just a day before Harry Potter's birthday! :D

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Hahahahah! I know what you mean, PB. That was my first reaction too, when I thought of doing this post. And I had such a difficult time shortlisting these 10 posts!

The Weasley twins are my favorites too. I also liked bits of Lee Jordan's commentary in the Quidditch matches. And Luna Lovegood... she is priceless! Such amazing out-of-the-box thinking!

Most of Dumbledore's quotes are very insightful. And yes, I remember that one from Lupin. That's among my favorites too.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@ the little princess - Oh these few quotes barely scratch the surface of the series! The books are loaded with such witty and thought-provoking gems! Movies are crap though.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

A refresher course, Shilpa? :D Hahahah!

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

And you know, Reema... I started on these books when the 6th was just about to be released. Read the first 5 in just a few days! The 5th one is sooooooo thick, I spent the entire night reading it! My eyes remained swollen for 2 days after that! :P

jaibalarao said...

Harry Potter. Oh how I love the series. These quotes just make me want to go back and read the books again. And again. And again.

Chicky said...

I know, JB! Same here!

Mithila Menezes said...

Almost everything that Fred and George have said throughout the 7 books has been extremely funny.. And since they are my role models in Mischief Making, I must clap my hands after reading the fourth one! :-P

Really awesome compilation!

From one Potterhead to another! :D

Rajlakshmi said...

Loved all of them :D Harry Potter quotes are always my favorite :D

Chicky said...

Thanks, Potterhead! (Mithila) :D
Weasley twins have been the favorite of many, apparently. I'm quite sure the series wouldn't have become so popular if they weren't in it.

Chicky said...

Mine too, Raji! Although it's just so difficult to pick only 10 from so many!
