Harry Potter Quotes

Joanne Rowling, an unknown Scottish author, published her first novel on June 26, 1997.

Only 500 copies of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone were printed, but it was the start of a global sensation that would captivate children and adults for decades.

What began as a product of an author’s imagination has grown into a series of novels, eight box office hits, and a slew of major attractions (you can go to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in America, Japan, Europe and beyond). It has a cult following of devoted “muggles” (non-magic people) both online and in person.

J.K. Rowling is one of the richest and most successful authors of all time, with her novels and films grossing over $7.7 billion each.

Rowling has built a world that is lovely and exciting because it connects so well with our own, from Hogwarts to Hogsmeade, Platform 9 and 3/4, and The Burrow.

Whether it’s the excitement of shopping for school supplies in Diagon Alley, boarding the Hogwarts Express, or taking a potions lesson, Rowling immerses us in the Harry Potter universe and makes us feel at home.

The hardships and lessons that Harry Potter and his friends experience push us to think about the major questions about life, love, friendship, loyalty, and fate.

So, whether you’re a fan of Harry Potter because of the books, the movies, or a combination of the two, we’ve compiled a list of the most amazing Harry Potter quotations from each.
