harry potter book quotes

  • McGonagall: "So to be clear-you illegally jumped off the Hogwarts Express, you invaded and stole from the Ministry of Magic, you took it upon yourself to change time, whereupon you disappeared two people-"
  • Albus: "I agree it doesn't sound good."
  • McGonagall: "And your response to disappearing Hugo and Rose Granger-Weasley was to go back in time again-and this time, instead of losing two people you lost a huge number of people and killed your father-and in doing so you resurrected the worst wizard the world has ever known and heralded in a new age of Dark Magic? You're correct, Mr. Potter, it doesn't sound good.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
October extinguished itself in a rush of howling winds and driving rain and November arrived, cold as frozen iron, with hard frosts every morning and icy drafts that bit at exposed hands and faces.

Veritaserum

“My God - Diggory!” it whispered. “Dumbledore - he’s dead!”

The words were repeated, the shadowy figures pressing in on them gasped it to those around them…and then others shouted it – screeched it – into the night – “He’s dead!” “He’s dead!” “Cedric Diggory! Dead!”

“Harry, let go of him,” he heard Fudge’s voice say, and he felt fingers trying to pry him from Cedric’s limp body, but Harry wouldn’t let him go. Then Dumbledore’s face, which was still blurred and misted, came closer.

“Harry, you can’t help him now. It’s over. Let go.”

“He wanted me to bring him back,” Harry muttered – it seemed important to explain this. “He wanted me to bring him back to his parents….”

“That’s right, Harry…just let go now….”

  • Hermione: Did you find out anything from Dumbledore?
  • Harry: Not much—only hints and riddles.
  • Hermione: Did you ask about your scar hurting?
  • Harry: We didn’t discuss it.
  • Hermione: You should have. I am sure it is very important.
  • Harry: In that case I am sure Dumbledore would have refused to explain it.
