10 Harry Potter Quotes To Live By

If you're between the ages of 18-25, you lived in the era of growing up with Harry Potter. The movies came out when you were young and your appreciation grew as you grew older. As I rewatch and reread a lot of the movies and books, I realize that while the series isn't terribly relatable, there are some life lessons hidden within the series that I believe we could all take with us as we go on. Here are some of my favorite quotes from the series.

1. "It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live." -Dumbledore

2. "But you know, happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light." -Dumbledore

3. "I am what I am, an’ I’m not ashamed. ‘Never be ashamed,’ my ol’ dad used ter say, ‘there’s some who’ll hold it against you, but they’re not worth botherin’ with.” -Hagrid

4. "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." - Sirius Black

5. “It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” -Dumbledore

6. “If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals." -Sirius Black

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

8. “Harry, suffering like this proves you are still a man! This pain is part of being human … the fact that you can feel pain like this is your greatest strength.
” -Dumbledore

9. “Things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, if not always in the way we expect.” -Luna Lovegood

10. “No story lives unless someone wants to listen. The stories we love best do live in us forever. So whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.” -J.K. Rowling
