Harry Potter Moment #110

Harry Potter Moment of the Week 

Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a  meme hosted by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts  and Me @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote, object from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself!  How to join up &  upcoming topics here.

Favorite quote from Philosopher's Stone

Oh wow, yeah narrowing this topic down to one answer is soooo not going to happen. I've managed to pick out 8 favorites - and this is just the first book! LOL!  Let's start with the obvious ones: 

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.
“To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.” 
“The truth... It is a beautiful and terrible thing, and should therefore be treated with great caution.” 
Moving on to the odd but entertaining:

“Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak!” 
“There are some things you can't share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them.”  
“Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus.” (Never tickle a sleeping dragon.)
 And finally, the outright funny ones:

So light a fire!" Harry choked. "Yes...of course...but there's no wood!" ... "HAVE YOU GONE MAD!" Ron bellowed. "ARE YOU A WITCH OR NOT!” 
I hope you're pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed - or worse, expelled. Now if you don't mind, I'm going to bed.” 


  1. These are ALL so awesome! ❤ I still LOL at Hermione forgetting for a moment that she was a witch, and how to her, getting expelled from school was worse than dying. XD

  2. Love this! I chose the forgetful Hermione one too, it always makes me laugh that she just completely blanks! Great choices :)

  3. Hermione has some of the best lines in Philosopher's Stone! Along with Snape and Dumbledore :)

    My post :)

  4. Such great quotes!! We did choose a lot of the same ones. The one that I adore that I didn't put up on mine is the one about death. Dumbledore is so right on about things! I also thought about including the “Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak!” one because I love how that showcases a side to Dumbledore that we didn't especially get to see in the movies.

  5. Oh yeah, there was no way I was going to choose just one quote! Your choices are awesome! :D J.K. Rowling really knows how to write. Those characters are beautiful and funny and snarky. It's so fun going back through the book to remind myself which quotes are my favorite.


I LOVE comments & do my best to return every one a.s.a.p. ♥
