Column #3 - Harry Potter Quotes


Harry Potter quotes are the best, are they not? In today's edition I will be showing you my top six favourite Harry Potter quotes, in no particular order, that I just can't help saying aloud:


1 - "What’s life without a little risk?". This amazing quote spoken by Sirius Black in The Order of the
Phoenix is so inspiring and allows us to just let go and have a great time, allowing us to see what pleasures the world has to offer. Without a little risk, life is pointless and depressing which Sirius Black shows in this quote.

2 - "Fear of a name increases fear of the thing itself". This quote, said by Albus Dumbledore in The Philosopher's Stone. It shows that we should never be afraid to say a name such as Voldemort's which Dumbledore says to Harry to make sure that he is able to say the name of the dark wizard who killed his parents. This allows us to not be afraid of anything and to always stand our ground.

3 - "And now, Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure". This quote, said yet again by Albus Dumbledore but in the Half-Blood Prince, is such as aspiration and a goal to get out into the world and go on an adventure. It also explains how tempting
adventure is and we shouldn't resist adventure which is a wondrous feeling to have.

4 - "If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals". This quote is said by Sirius Black in The Goblet of Fire. One of the themes in Harry Potter is the cruelty of House-elves and how they are cruelly mistreated. This is because Sirius Black explains how inferiors should be treated just as equals would be treated. This quote is so strong and powerful with just the right words to make anyone think about rights.

5 - "Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light". This sentence is famously spoken by Albus Dumbledore in The Prisoner of Azkaban. This is possibly
one of the most popular quotes in the Harry Potter series, and one of the most memorable. It shows that even though you may have lost all hope, there is still a ray of sunshine at the end of the tunnel and you just need to wait for the good things to come, which they eventually will.

6 - "We've all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That's who we really are". This is said by Sirius Black in the Order of the Phoenix. It shows that we can choose to act upon the light or dark side of us, which reflects on how we live our lives. This quote makes us all question how we act and allows us to think about what our actions to do us.
