Top Ten Tuesday #19
Favorite Quotes from Harry Potter
Today’s prompt is “Book Quote Freebie” and I’ve decided to share my top 10 favorite quotes from Harry Potter. As many of my readers know, I struggle with mental illness–Borderline Personality Disorder, depression, anxiety, among other things. Harry Potter has been a huge comfort to me for the last 21 years. Because of Harry Potter, I learned to love reading. Many of the quotes I’m sharing have inspired me in some way or another. Here are my top ten favorite quotes from the series:
What about you? Which quotes made your list this week? Do we have any in common?
You can never go wrong with Harry Potter!! And there sure has been some wonderful wisdom in that series.
Have a wonderful Tuesday Jenni!
I agree. 🙂 Thanks, Mareli!
What nice Harry Potter quotes.

Harry Potter is full of many amazing quotes.
Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!
It is, isn’t it? 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.
Harry Potter does have enough great and inspiring quotes to dedicate an entire post to. Great spin on this week’s prompt.

Have a great week 🙂
Thanks, Rae! 🙂
The greatest truths do seem to be two opposing truths. That’s also the wisdom of the Tao, (of which I know just enough to be dangerous.)
I, too, love Harry Potter, though I’m disappointed with its author’s stance on trans issues.
That’s very interesting about the Tao. I know nothing about it. I’m always very curious about other spiritual views. Thanks for letting me know. I’ll have to do some research into the Tao. 🙂
This series is so quotable and you made some great choices here!
Also, your note is spot on.
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
Thanks, Cholla! 😀
Ugh. These are some quotes that will stay with me forever! I adore the story itself, and probably always will, but these days I feel terrible calling myself a Harry Potter fan after everything Rowling has said about trans people. She is an awful human.
I don’t like her views regarding trans people either and I still love Harry Potter as my note above says. Her being an awful human won’t take away from my enjoyment or love of the series.
Dumbledore does get a lot of the best lines in Harry Potter.

That he does. 🙂
Dumbledore did have some great quotes! I do like your DBT comment too!
These are my quotes – hope the font is legible…
Thanks, Michael. 🙂 I look forward to reading your quotes as well.
These are excellent and thought-provoking quotes. I love so many quotes that it’s impossible to choose. The true magic of HP got me through some tough times also. Reading in general has been a godsend.
Thanks, Margaret! I agree that reading in general is a godsend. I finally started reading again last night and it was so soothing. I missed it and I’m glad to be at it again.
Harry Potter!! So many pearls of wisdom in that book!
There are, aren’t there? 🙂
Harry Potter is not in my genre wheelhouse so I have never read it. However, it does have some great quotes, thanks for sharing!
No problem. 🙂 I totally get that it’s not your genre wheelhouse. We all march to the different beat of a drum, right?
I think Harry Potter has been a source of comfort to so many people over the years. I’ve never read the series beyond book one but it’s neat that it means so much to so many!
It really has. I’m sad there’s a stain on its legacy now. Oh well. It is what it is.
I’m curious why you haven’t continued the series. Just not your thing? Or too many other books to read?
I didn’t LOVE it? So I just never went on. But I wanted to at least read the first one and see what the hype was about.
Makes sense. It’s not for everyone. At least you tried. 🙂
There are so many great quotes in the series. They are very inclusive and inspiring of acceptance. Too bad the author seemed to abandon or put qualifiers on them in real life.
Karen @For What It’s Worth
I completely agree. There are so many things that Rowling has said since Deathly Hallows was published in 2007 that I don’t agree with, some regarding the series and a lot regarding her stance on trans people. Corey often says to me that he thinks she’s just trying to stay relevant without having to write another Harry Potter book. After all, bad publicity is still publicity.
That Hagrid quote has always struck me as really profound. Thanks for sharing these 🙂
Me too, especially when I think of mental illness and other difficulties I face because of my depression and anxiety. 🙂
These are all such great and seriously relatable quotes. Great list this week!
Thanks, Leah! 😀
What a great idea to use quotes from Harry Potter. There are so many good ones.
Thanks for visiting my TTT this week which is about lighthouses.
Thanks, Marianne! 😀 And, no problem. I loved your post about lighthouses.
Lots of good HP quotes! I liked your formatting of them. It’s pretty.
Thanks, Deanna! 😀
“Numbing the pain for a while will only make it worse in the future.” Should be tattooed on people’s arms who think that taking drugs is a good idea.
I think this quote applies to more people than those who take drugs. I often avoid things so I don’t have to feel the pain.
Like I told you on IG, I almost did this exact same theme! I just finished re-reading Sorcerer’s Stone for the who knows how many-eth time. This time, I listened to it on audio, which was doubly delightful. Like you, I find the HP series great for comfort reading. I will never not love it.
I actually don’t pay a lot of attention to what actors/writers/celebrities do and say outside of their craft. I can love a work of literature, art, music, theater, etc. without agreeing with what their creator does or says. The HP series preaches love, friendship, courage, hope, standing up to bullies, the triumph of good over evil, etc. and, for that, I will always love it.
Agreed. That’s why I’ll always love Harry Potter as well. The series preaches everything I value, even if the author no longer does. 🙂
Harry Potter made me a reader too. The first book came out when I was in elementary school. The last one came out when I was in college. I feel like I spent most of my life reading and rereading Harry Potter.
That’s awesome that you got to grow up with Harry Potter. I read the first book in 2001 after the first movie was released. I was 23 at the time.
These are some lovely quotes, and super inspiring! Kind of make me want to do a series re-read 🙂
Thanks, Lindsey! 😀 I’m glad you liked them. I still need to finish my reread that I started two years ago. 😂 I only have Half-Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows left.
