“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
“Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears.
"After all this time?"
"Always," said Snape.”
“We're all human, aren't we? Every human life is worth the same, and worth saving.”
“He can run faster than Severus Snape confronted with shampoo.”
“Why are they all staring?" demanded Albus as he and Rose craned around to look at the other students.
"Don’t let it worry you," said Ron. "It’s me. I’m extremely famous.”
“He must have known I'd want to leave you."
"No, he must have known you would always want to come back.”
“Cinderella? Snow White? What's that? An illness?”
“Albus Severus," Harry said quietly, so that nobody but Ginny could hear, and she was tactful enough to pretend to be waving to Rose, who was now on the train, "you were named for two headmasters of Hogwarts. One of them was a Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew.”
“How do you feel, Georgie?" whispered Mrs. Weasley.
George's fingers groped for the side of his head.
"Saintlike," he murmured.
"What's wrong with him?" croaked Fred, looking terrified. "Is his mind affected?"
"Saintlike," repeated George, opening his eyes and looking up at his brother. "You see...I'm HOLEY, Fred, geddit?”
“Holey? You have the the whole world of ear-related humor before you, you go for holey?”
“There was a clatter as the basilisk fangs cascaded out of Hermione's arms. Running at Ron, she flung them around his neck and kissed him full on the mouth. Ron threw away the fangs and broomstick he was holding and responded with such enthusiasm that he lifted Hermione off her feet.
"Is this the moment?" Harry asked weakly, and when nothing happened except that Ron and Hermione gripped each other still more firmly and swayed on the spot, he raised his voice. "OI! There's a war going on here!"
Ron and Hermione broke apart, their arms still around each other.
"I know, mate," said Ron, who looked as though he had recently been hit on the back of the head with a Bludger, "so it's now or never, isn't it?"
"Never mind that, what about the Horcrux?" Harry shouted. "D'you think you could just --- just hold it in, until we've got the diadem?"
"Yeah --- right --- sorry ---" said Ron, and he and Hermione set about gathering up fangs, both pink in the face.”
“It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well.”
“The scar had not pained Harry for nineteen years. All was well.”
“Seventeen, eh!" said Hagrid as he accepted a bucket-sized glass of wine from Fred.
"Six years to the day we met, Harry, d’yeh remember it?"
"Vaguely," said Harry, grinning up at him. "Didn’t you smash down the front door, give Dudley a pig’s tail, and tell me I was a wizard?"
"I forge’ the details," Hagrid chortled.”
“I'm going to keep going until I succeed — or die. Don't think I don't know how this might end. I've known it for years.”
“For instance, this new idea that You-Know-Who can kill with a single glance from his eyes. That’s a basilisk, listeners. One simple test: Check whether the thing that’s glaring at you has got legs. If it has, it’s safe to look into its eyes, although if it really is You-Know-Who, that’s still likely to be the last thing you ever do.”
“Every second he breathed, the smell of the grass, the cool air on his face, was so precious: To think that people had years and years, time to waste, so much time it dragged, and he was clinging to each second.”
“We did it, we bashed them wee Potter's the one, and Voldy's gone moldy, so now let's have fun!”
“Look...at...me..." he whispered. The green eyes found the black, but after a second, something in the depths of the dark pair seemed to vanish, leaving them fixed, blank, and empty. The hand holding Harry thudded to the floor, and Snape moved no more.”
“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.”
“Snape's patronus was a doe,' said Harry, 'the same as my mother's because he loved her for nearly all of his life, from when they were children.”
“The last words Albus Dumbledore spoke to the pair of us?'
Harry is the best hope we have. Trust him.”
“I was a girl in a land where rifles are fired in celebration of a son, while daughters are hidden away behind a curtain, their role in life simply to prepare food and give birth to children.”
“در فاصله ی میان دو جنگ، یوهان خردسال ... سرگرم بازیهای چهار و نیم سالگی خود بود. بازیهایی که هیچ آدم بالغی به معنا و مفهوم آن پی نمیبرد و از شیرینی آن خبر نداشت. ... این بازیها بیش از هر چیز به تخیل بی آلایش، پرشور، نیرومند، دست نخورده و بی حد و مرز سنّ و سال بی دغدغهای نیازمند است که در آن زندگی هنوز قادر نیست به ما دست درازی کند، سنّ و سالی که در آن هنوز نه گناهی به گردن داریم و نه وظیفه ای، سنّ و سالی که در آن اجئزه داریم ببینیم، بشنویم، بخندیم، شگفت زده شویم و رویا ببافیم، بی آن که دنیا هنوز از ما توقعی داشته باشد، سنّ و سالی که در آن کسانی که میخواهیم دوستشان بداریم، هنوز با بی صبری خود، آزارمان نمیدهند و در پی آن نیستند که با دیدن نخستین نشانهها و دلایل، اطمینان بیابند که در آینده به خوبی از عهده ی توقعات زندگی بر خواهیم آمد. اما طولی نخواهد کشید که زندگی با قدرت بی چون و چرای خود بر سرمان بتازد، آلوده مان کند، به راه مان بیاورد، دراز و کوتاه مان کند، تباه مان کند.”
“This is the gift of your species and this is the danger, because you do not choose to control your imaginings. You imagine wonderful things and you imagine terrible things, and you take no responsibility for the choice. You say you have inside you both the power of good and the power of evil, the angel and the devil, but in truth you have just one thing inside you - the ability to imagine.”
“To know a little about a lot.”
“It's funny how we can be in love with someone one day, and the next we can easily fall in love with someone else.”
BookQuoters is a community of passionate readers who enjoy sharing the most meaningful, memorable and interesting quotes from great books. As the world communicates more and more via texts, memes and sound bytes, short but profound quotes from books have become more relevant and important. For some of us a quote becomes a mantra, a goal or a philosophy by which we live. For all of us, quotes are a great way to remember a book and to carry with us the author’s best ideas.
We thoughtfully gather quotes from our favorite books, both classic and current, and choose the ones that are most thought-provoking. Each quote represents a book that is interesting, well written and has potential to enhance the reader’s life. We also accept submissions from our visitors and will select the quotes we feel are most appealing to the BookQuoters community.
Founded in 2018, BookQuoters has quickly become a large and vibrant community of people who share an affinity for books. Books are seen by some as a throwback to a previous world; conversely, gleaning the main ideas of a book via a quote or a quick summary is typical of the Information Age but is a habit disdained by some diehard readers. We feel that we have the best of both worlds at BookQuoters; we read books cover-to-cover but offer you some of the highlights. We hope you’ll join us.
