Rescued from the outrageous neglect of his aunt and uncle, a young boy with a great destiny proves his worth while attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

It does not do to dwell on dreams, Harry, and forget to live.
– Dumbledore

Now if you two don’t mind, I’m going to bed before either of you come up with another clever idea to get us killed – or worse, expelled.
– Hermione
She needs to sort out her priorities!
– Ron

Harry, no way! You heard what Madam Hooch said. Besides, you don’t even know how to fly!
– Hermione
What an idiot!
– Hermione

What happened down in the dungeon between you and Professor Quirrell is a complete secret. So, naturally, the whole school knows.
– Dumbledore

It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends.
– Dumbledore

You’re a wizard, Harry!
– Hagrid
I’m a what?
– Harry

Honestly, don’t you two read?
– Hermione

Fred, you next.
– Molly Weasley
He’s not Fred, I am!
– George Weasley
Honestly, woman. You call yourself our mother.
– Fred Weasley
Oh, I’m sorry, George.
– Molly Weasley
I’m only joking, I am Fred!
– Fred Weasley

It’s spooky! She knows more about you than you do!
– Ron
Who doesn’t?
– Harry

Only problem is, I can’t remember what I’ve forgotten.
– Neville Longbottom

Stop moving, both of you. This is devil’s snare! You have to relax. If you don’t, it’ll only kill you faster!
– Hermione
Kill us faster? Oh, now I can relax!
– Ron

I think we’ve had a bad influence on her.
– Ron

Immortal?
– Ron
It means you’ll never die.
– Hermione
I know what it means!
– Ron

What do they think they’re doing, keeping a thing like that locked up in a school?
– Ron
You don’t use your eyes, do you? Didn’t you see what it was standing on?
– Hermione
I wasn’t looking at its feet! I was a bit preoccupied with its heads… or maybe you didn’t notice? There were three!
– Ron

You’ll be okay, Harry. You’re a great wizard. You really are.
– Hermione
Not as good as you.
– Harry
Me? Books and cleverness. There are more important things: friendship and bravery. And Harry, just be careful.
– Hermione

You’ll soon find out that some wizarding families are better than others, Potter. You don’t wanna go making friends with the wrong sort. I can help you there.
– Draco Malfoy
I think I can tell the wrong sort for myself, thanks.
– Harry

Feels strange to be going home, doesn’t it?
– Hermione
I’m not going home. Not really.
– Harry

Mental that one, I’m telling you.
– Ron

Curious… very curious…
– Mr. Ollivander
Sorry, but what’s curious?
– Harry
I remember every wand I’ve ever sold, Mr. Potter. It so happens that the phoenix whose tailfeather resides in your wand gave another feather… just one other. It is curious that you should be destined for this wand when its brother gave you that scar.
– Mr. Ollivander
And who owned that wand?
– Harry
We do not speak his name! The wand chooses the wizard, Mr. Potter. It’s not always clear why. But I think it is clear that we can expect great things from you. After all, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named did great things. Terrible! Yes. But great.
– Mr. Ollivander

Troll! In the dungeons!
– Professor Quirrel
Thought you ought to know.
– Professor Quirrel

There will be no foolish wand-waving or silly incantations in this class. As such, I don’t expect many of you to appreciate the subtle science and exact art that is potion-making. However, for those select few…
– Professor Severus Snape
Who possess, the predisposition… I can teach you how to bewitch the mind and ensnare the senses. I can tell you how to bottle fame, brew glory, and even put a stopper in death.
– Professor Severus Snape
Then again, maybe some of you have come to Hogwarts in possession of abilities so formidable that you feel confident enough to not pay attention!
– Professor Severus Snape
Mister Potter. Our new celebrity.
– Professor Severus Snape

I can’t be a-a-a wizard. I mean, I’m just Harry, just Harry.
– Harry

There is no good and evil. There is only power, and those too weak to seek it.
– Voldemort

Scared, Harry?
– Oliver Wood
A little.
– Harry
That’s all right. I felt the same way before my first game.
– Oliver Wood
What happened?
– Harry
I, uh, I don’t really remember. I took a bludger to the head two minutes in. Woke up in hospital a week later.
– Oliver Wood

I think if he’d had the chance, he might’ve tried to kill me tonight.
– Harry
And to think, I’ve been worrying about my potions final.
– Ron

You’ve got dirt on your nose, by the way. Did you know? Just there.
– Hermione

Hello! How are you? Welcome to Gryffindor!
– Nearly Headless Nick

Only a person who wanted to find the Stone – find it, but not use it – would be able to get it. That is one of my more brilliant ideas. And between you and me, that is saying something.
– Dumbledore

Good of you to get us out of trouble like that.
– Harry
Mind you, we did save her life!
– Ron
Mind you, she might not have needed saving if you hadn’t insulted her.
– Harry

Crikey, I’d love a dragon.
– Hagrid
You’d like a dragon?
– Harry
