Quotes from Harry Potter books

I'm a big fan. When everything is tuned to Star Wars these days, I'm still clutching my HP books. Star Wars comes second.

I'm quoting from my favourite characters.

Sirius Black

"If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals."
"I'll look for him later, I expect I'll find him upstairs crying his eyes out over my mother's old bloomers or something...Of course, he might have crawled up into the airing cupboard and died...But I mustn't get my hopes up..."

Fred & George Weasley

"Hey, look - Harry's got a Weasley sweater, too!" Fred and George were wearing blue sweaters, one with a large yellow 'F' on it, the other a 'G'.
"Harry's is better than ours, though," said Fred, holding up Harry's sweater. "She obviously makes more of an effort if you're not family."
"Why aren't you wearing yours, Ron?" George demanded. "Come on, get it on, they're lovely and warm."
"I hate maroon," Ron moaned halfheartedly as he pulled it over his head.
"You haven't got a letter on yours," George observed. "I suppose she thinks you don't forget your name. But we're not stupid - we know we're called Gred and Forge."

Hermione Granger

"Just because you've got the emotional range of a teaspoon doesn't mean we all have."

Severus Snape
"I can teach you how to bottle fame, brew glory, even stopper death - if you aren't as big a bunch of dunderheads as I usually have to teach."

People who haven't read the books wouldn't probably know how and where the quotes come from. So don't get all wrinkled if you don't get it.

I love the books a whole lot more than the movies! They're are exiciting, adventurous and most important of all, witty & fun.
