I solemnly swear that I am up to no good! ~ Well, kind of, I’m actually throwing out my favorite quotes from the books and movies of the boy who lived, on his 33rd birthday. Some come with explanations. Others don’t. Before I go into some favorite lines from specific characters, here are a couple randos… Enjoy Potterheads!
Lightning has Struck ~ Nigel Wolpert, ~ This is just a great combination that brings goosebumps to my skin. As of now, it is part of my tattoo design.
D’you think your father and I would’ve lain down and taken orders from an old hag like Umbridge? ~ Sirius Black. Anytime someone disses Umbridge, I love it!
I remember when I first met you all. Biggest bunch of misfits I ever set eyes on! ~ Hagrid
Have a biscuit, Potter. ~ Minerva McGonagall, Potterheads know that this comes from Phoenix, when Harry gets in trouble for reaming out Umbridge’s lying ass.
Bad news, Harry. I’ve just been to see Professor McGonagall about the Firebolt. She, er got a bit shirty with me. Told me I’d got my priorities wrong. Seemed to think I cared more about winning the Cup than I do about staying alive. Just because I told her I didn’t care if it threw you off, as long as you caught the Snitch first. ~ Oliver Wood
Wandering around at midnight, Ickle Firsties? Tut, tut, tut. Naughty, naughty, you’ll get caughty. ~ Peeves, in all his hilariousness and glory. It’s a shame he didn’t make it into the movies.
Fred and George
Give her hell from us, Peeves. And Peeves, whom Harry had never seen take an order from a student before, swept his belled hat from his head and sprang to a salute. ~ These two have so many classic lines, but here are my top few from the pranksters.
Make way for the heir of Slytherin, seriously evil wizard coming through.
You haven’t got a letter on yours; I suppose she thinks you don’t forget your name. But we’re not stupid – we know we’re called Gred and Forge.
Just because you’ve got the emotional range of a teaspoon doesn’t mean we all have. ~ the strongest female lead I could ask for. Smart. Beautiful. Fiery. The Best.
Well honestly… ‘the fates have informed her’… Who sets the exam? She does! What a fantastic prediction!
Books and cleverness! There are more important things–friendship and bravery
At least no one on the Gryffindor team had to buy their way in. They got in on pure talent.
Why couldn’t it be “follow the butterflies?” ~ Ron Weasley. Because Ron, the books would be boring if it was just butterflies and killing horcruxes every other day. We want pain and suffering, not to be home by Christmas! More from the best of all friends.
I want to fix that in my memory forever. Draco Malfoy, the amazing bouncing ferret.
Hasn’t he asked you to call him Vicky yet?
Can I have a look at Uranus, too, Lavender?
Hey-hey you lot! Midgets!
Maybe he [Tom Riddle] got thirty O.W.L.s or saved a teacher from the giant squid. Maybe he murdered Myrtle; that would’ve done everyone a favor… ~ Ron Weasley, foreshadowing the evilness in Tom Riddle without knowing it! This is great writing.
You’re just as sane as I am. ~ Luna Lovegood. This one really sticks with me because I find myself most like Luna in all of the books. She cares and is not afraid to be herself, even when everyone else will pick on her for it. She’s very tough, stays cool under pressure, and she is highly intelligent. Here are a couple other Luna favorites.
We fly of course! ~ Luna is just as cool as a cucumber. Always knows what’s up, and rocks out on a thestral when need be!
He’s covered in blood again. Why’s it he’s always covered in blood. ~ Ginny Weasley. I have a major thing for “book” Ginny. Bonnie Wright did a great job, but the character in the books brought so much fire and spunk. Here are my favorite Ginny moments.
“But I must say, Ginevra’s dress is far too low-cut.” (Aunt Muriel). Ginny glanced round, grinning, winked at Harry, then quickly faced the front again.
The thing about growing up with Fred & George, you begin to think anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.
Harry’s snogged Cho, and Hermione’s snogged Krum. You only don’t like it because you’ve got about as much experience as a first year! ~ Ginny always did have a knack for putting Ron in his place. She was the best youngest sibling, and I really fell in love with her as Harry did.
Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak! ~ This is another tattoo consideration. I love the eceletic nature of Dumbledore’s mind, but I also love that they are the opposites of the four houses.
And now Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.
I believe your friends Misters Fred and George Weasley were responsible for trying to send you a toilet seat.
Alas, Ear Wax.
Words are, in my not so humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic, capable of both inflicting injury and remedying it. ~ This quote really resonates with me as a reader and writer. JK really inspired a generation to read and create literature. I wouldn’t be writing without her world.
