Quote Corner #5: Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone

Good afternoon and happy Wednesday! I hope you’ve all been doing well! 🙂
This week I decided to share a few of my favourite quotes from the first Harry Potter book because I think we could all do with a little bit of magic in our lives right now.
Happy reading!! 😉


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

It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.

“Harry – you’re a great wizard, you know.”
“I’m not as good as you,” said Harry, very embarrassed, as she let go of him.
“Me!” said Hermione. “Books! And cleverness! There are more important things – friendship and bravery and – oh Harry – be careful!”

“Fred, you next,” the plump woman said.
“I’m not Fred, I’m George,” said the boy. “Honestly, woman, you call yourself our mother? Can’t you tell I’m George?”
“Sorry, George, dear.”
“Only joking, I am Fred,” said the boy and off he went.”


Reading these quotes makes me want to reread the series so badly! I’ve read the series six or seven times (I think), but it’s been a good six years since I read them last. A reread is definitely needed! I was so young when I read them before and I’m really curious as to how my perspective has changed as I’ve gotten older.
I also really want to watch the movies again! I did a marathon with a few of my friends a couple of months ago, which was really fun! It took us two separate days to get through them all though. My boyfriend and I recently started watching them because he hadn’t seen them before. I was so excited to continue watching the series with him, but unfortunately, we had to put our marathon on hold due to corona virus. 😦 Hopefully we’ll be able to resume soon!! I’m also really excited to finish the series with him so that he will understand my Harry Potter references, hehe.
