10 Harry Potter Book Quotes That Will Give You Hope

There was a time in my life, a dark time really when I refused to read the Harry Potter series. One of my best friends growing up was obsessed with the series and told me I needed to read the books, but I waved her off because I never felt like reading them. Little did I know I was depriving myself of the most magical and wonderful book series in existence.

Fast forward a few years, and one weekend I found myself without a book to read, so I scanned through my parents’ lil library and there lay Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. I told myself if I didn’t like it I could just stop reading it. But guess what? I LOVED it. I’ve re-read the series multiple times now, and I even have a second edition of the first Harry Potter book that has become my most cherished possession.

I don’t just love Harry Potter because it’s a story about magic, I love Harry Potter because it’s shown me time and time again that I can beat any dragons in my life (metaphorical and real). These books have brought me so much joy and hope, and with writing like that, how could it not?

Without further ado, please enjoy these 10 Harry Potter quotes that are sure to bring you heaps of hope.

It is our choices that show what we truly are far more than our abilities.

Hagrid, Goblet of Fire

The thing about growing up with Fred and George is that you sort of start thinking anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.

Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.

Albus Dumbledore, Prisoner of Azkaban

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.

Albus Dumbledore, Deathly Hallows

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

Luna Lovegood, Order of Phoenix

Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.
