J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter – Quotes

Quotes from Joanne Kathleen Rowling’s,

Harry Potter book series



J.K. Rowling

” There is a room in the Department of Mysteries (your heart) that is kept locked at all times. It contains a force that is at once more wonderful and more terrible than death, than human intelligence, than the forces of nature. It is also, perhaps, the most mysterious of the many subjects for study that reside there.
It is the power held within that room that you possess in such quantities and which Voldemort has not at all. (Love)”

” You are protected, in short, by your ability to love! The only protection that can possibly work against the lure of power like Voldemort’s (evil’s)! In spite of all the temptation you have endured, all the suffering, you remain pure of heart…”

” It was because of your mother. She sacrificed herself for you. And that kind of act leaves a mark… This kind of mark cannot be seen. It lives in your very skin. (Love)”

” The consequences of our actions are so complicated, so diverse, that predicting the future is a very difficult business indeed.”

“It’s the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more.”

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

” It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to your enemies, but even more to stand up to your friends.”

” It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.”

” Do not pity the dead. Pity the living, and, above all, those who live without love.”

” Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike.”

” The truth. It is a beautiful and terrible thing, and must therefore be treated with great caution.”

” If you want to see the true measure of a man, watch how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.”

” Dark and difficult times lie ahead. Soon we must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy.”

” We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided. We can fight it only by showing an equally strong bond of friendship and trust. Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.”

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

” To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.”

” Destiny is a name often given in retrospect to choices that had dramatic consequences.”

” When you have seen as much of life as I have, you will not underestimate the power of obsessive love.”

” Age is foolish and forgetful when it underestimates youth.”

” Ah, music. A magic beyond all we do here!”

” Never trust anything that can think for itself if you can’t see where it keeps its brain.”

” The best of us must sometimes eat our words.”

” Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it.”

” …people find it far easier to forgive others for being wrong than being right.”

” Youth cannot know how age thinks and feels. But old men are guilty if they forget what it was to be young.”

” There is no good or evil: only power and those too weak to seek it.”

” Fear of a name increases fear of the thing itself.”

” Humans have a knack for choosing precisely the things that are worst for them.”

” Never be ashamed! There’s some who’ll hold it against you, but they’re not worth bothering with.”

Spoiler alert!!!

’Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?’ “
