Harry Potter Quotes and I Wingardium Leviosa!

- I have no idea why I wrote that there To say that I am a fan of the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling would be an understatement- I think the word, obsessed would be more appropriate. Ive read all the books and seen the movies on more than one occasion. I search the Internet for interesting articles about the series, its characters, and the author. I listen to cast interviews, and watch behind the scene footage on YouTube. Ive even joined the Pottermore website where I play games, and unlock the secrets of the Harry Potter universe. I suppose the only thing I havent done to satiate my Harry Potter obsession is buy merchandise and memorabilia online, since Im not at a point in my life to financially give in to my every whim and fancy. I recently started reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the fourth book in the series for you Muggles, for the umpteenth when the idea for this blog post came to me. I began to think about all the Harry Potter quotes that have impacted my life. I immediately started to compile a list of said quotes, and I decided that I will share them with my readers. I present some of my favourite quotes from the Harry Potter series. I hope you enjoy! 1) Constant vigilance!- Alastor Mad Eye Moody, Harry Potter and the Goble of Fire. Although Mad Eye was portrayed as overly paranoid in the series, there is sense to his saying. I should be aware of my surroundings, and the people I surround myself with. I have learned that some people do not have my best interests at heart, but will pretend that they do until they get what they want. Also, we live in a different world- a dangerous one- and we must be vigilant at all times. 2) Really, Hagrid, if you are holding out for universal popularity, Im afraid that youll be in this cabin for a very long time. Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Its quite simple actually: everyone is not going to like or accept me for who I am and what I stand for. We are all different, born with our own personalities and quirks, and there are some people that will never understand. So, should I change myself to fit the mould? Hell to the no! Ill do Garvin til the end, and not hide in my proverbial cabin! 3) Differences in habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open. Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. As a language student, and budding world traveler this quote holds true. I try to approach new cultures, experiences and differences in opinions with openness. I am

willing to listen, try something new, or see the world from someone elses point of view. 4) Its the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more. Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. When I first read this quote, it was a true Aha! moment for me. It helped me to overcome my fear of dark as I found that if I memorized where everything was, and always left things in their place, that I can walk into a dark room or my apartment at night with no fear. Uncle Alby had a point! However, Im still working on the whole death thing! 5) We must try not to sink beneath our anguish, Harry, but battle on! Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. A nice reminder from Dumbledore that life has its ups and downs. Ive fell down at times, and will fall down again in the future. What matters is that I learn something from the bad times, get up, dust myself off, and keep going, lest life passes me by. P.S. Its not as easy as Im making it seem. 6) You said to us once before that there was time to turn back if we wanted to. Weve had time, havent we? Hermione Granger, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Two words: True Friendship! Ive had the pleasure of experiencing this kind of friendship, and I thank God. 7) Not my daughter, BITCH!- Molly Weasley, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. No power like a MOTHERS LOVE! That is all! My love for Harry Potter will never end! Until the next post! CHAO!
