Almost every Potterhead would remember the brilliantly crafted quotes on friendship and love from the Harry Potter series. On the occasion of Harry Potter’s 34th birthday, J.K. Rowling’s 49th birthday, and Friendship Day, let’s celebrate love, friendship and good cheer with some of these heart-warming quotes, which will bring back the happy times we spent with our friends and Harry.
“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.”
“Books! And cleverness! There are more important things — friendship and bravery and — oh Harry — be careful!”
“I was terrified they would desert me the moment they found out what I was. But of course, they, like you, Hermione, worked out the truth…
And they didn’t desert me at all. Instead they did something for me that would make my transformations not only bearable, but the best times of my life. They became Animagi.
They couldn’t keep me company as humans, so they kept me company as animals.”
“Death is but crossing the world, as friends do the seas; they live in one another still. For they must needs be present, that love and live in that which is omnipresent. In this divine glass, they see face to face; and their converse is free, as well as pure. This is the comfort of friends, that though they may be said to die, yet their friendship and society are, in the best sense, ever present, because immortal. William Penn, More Fruits of Solitude”
“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided. Lord Voldemort’s gift for spreading discord and enmity is very great. We can fight it only by showing an equally strong bond of friendship and trust. Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.”
“You think I’m a fool?” demanded Harry.
“No, I think you’re like James,” said Lupin, “who would have regarded it as the height of dishonor to mistrust his friends.”
