The amount of uplifting quotes from the Harry Potter series will amaze you. One of the reasons that I got sucked into this magical world of wizards and wands is the beautiful way that author J. K. Rowling manages to weave her words; from the intricate plots to in depth character studies, I've always been fascinated with figuring out how each carefully constructed idea exploded into this critically acclaimed franchise. It's clear that the fact that each book incorporates some sort of lesson is no accident. Even if you don't fully agree with that sentiment, these quotes from the Harry Potter series will definitely inspire you in some way and will teach you something!
This line from "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" is one of my most treasured quotes from the Harry Potter series. The raw conviction in Dumbeldore's voice as he recites this has always stood out to me. This powerful message focuses on the idea that the choices you make in life are a greater reflection of who you are than your capabilities. Being talented at doing something won't mean much if you can't find a way to use that influence for the greater good.
While it's incredibly important to dream, you should always make sure that you're working towards living out that dream and not just thinking it. Wishing and waiting for something to happen won't get you anything, you have to go out and get it.
I find this quote to be absolutely profound and beautiful. Sometimes it's harder to face your friends when it comes to something that you feel is important rather than fighting your enemies because of the level of intimacy that you share with them. In my opinion, this makes it even more necessary to fight for what you believe in. If they are true friends, they will either come around eventually or choose to support you anyway. Always remember to be courageous!
I feel like this message can be applied to any situation. Just because you are the only one experiencing something doesn't mean that it's not real or valid. Your thoughts and opinions are equally as important as the thoughts and opinions of others.
Your socioeconomic status does not define who you are; the way you choose to carry yourself does. It doesn't matter where you came from. The only thing that is important is that you remember who you really are and work on being the best you that you can be.
Even though it may hurt, it's sometimes better to feel pain than to run away from it. Allowing yourself to experience it will be beneficial in the future because you will know how to conquer it and take control of your life in the future.
Being clever and smart should never be considered a flaw. Even if people label you as a "nerd" or a "geek" for speaking your mind, don't take offense to it. It just means that you're doing something right.
I will always treasure the Harry Potter series because of all the life lessons I learned just from reading and watching. What are some of your favorite quotes from Harry Potter? Which book in the series did you find the most compelling?
