Quotes about life

"You'd think people had better things to gossip about, said Ginny as she sat on the common room floor, leaning against Harry'€™s legs and reading the Daily Prophet. Three Dementor attacks in a week, and all Romilda Vane does is ask me if it'€™s true you'€™ve got a Hippogriff tattooed across your chest. Ron and Hermione both roared with laughter. Harry ignored them. What did you tell her? I told her it's a Hungarian Horntail, said Ginny, turning a page of the newspaper idly. Much more macho. Thanks, said Harry, grinning. And what did you tell her Ron'€™s got? A Pygmy Puff, but I didn'€™t say where."

Inspirational quotes

"It was, he thought, the difference between being dragged into the arena to face a battle to the death and walking into the arena with your head held high. Some people, perhaps, would say that there was little to choose between the two ways, but Dumbledore knew - and so do I, thought Harry, with a rush of fierce pride, and so did my parents - that there was all the difference in the world."

"I DON'T CARE! Harry yelled at them, snatching up a lunascope and throwing it into the fireplace. "I'VE HAD ENOUGH, I'VE SEEN ENOUGH, I WANT OUT, I WANT IT TO END, I DON'T CARE ANYMORE! You do care, said Dumbledore. He had not flinched or made a single move to stop Harry demolishing his office. His expression was calm, almost detached. You care so much you feel as though you will bleed to death with the pain of it."

Quotes about life

"There was a clatter as the basilisk fangs cascaded out of Hermione's arms. Running at Ron, she flung them around his neck and kissed him full on the mouth. Ron threw away the fangs and broomstick he was holding and responded with such enthusiasm that he lifted Hermione off her feet. 'Is this the moment?' Harry asked weakly, and when nothing happened except that Ron and Hermione gripped each other still more firmly and swayed on the spot, he raised his voice. 'OI! There's a war going on here!' Ron and Hermione broke apart, their arms still around each other. 'I know, mate,' said Ron, who looked as though he had recently been hit on the back of the head with a Bludger, 'so it's now or never, isn't it?' 'Never mind that, what about the Horcrux?' Harry shouted. 'D'you think you could just -- just hold it in, until we've got the diadem?' 'Yeah, right, sorry...' said Ron, and he and Hermione set about gathering up fangs, both pink in the face."
