Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K Rowling

“Fred, you next,” the plump woman said.

“I’m not Fred, I’m George,” said the boy. “Honestly, woman, you call yourself our mother? Can’t you tell I’m George?”

Fred to Mrs. Weasley

Oh you may not think I’m pretty, but don’t judge on what you see, I’ll eat myself if you can find a smarter hat than me. You can keep your bowlers black, your top hats sleek and tall, for I’m the Hogwarts Sorting Hate and I can cap them all. There’s nothing hidden in your head the Sorting Hat can’t see, so try me on and I will tell you where you ought to be. You might belong in Gryffindor; where dwell the brave at heart. Their daring, nerve, and chivalry set Gryffindors apart. You might belong in Hufflepuff, where they are just and loyal, those patient Hufflepuffs are true and unafraid of toil. Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw, if you’ve a ready mind, where those of wit and learning, will always find their kind. Or perhaps in Slytherin you’ll make your real friends, those cunning folk use any means to achieve their ends. So put me on! Don;t be afraid! And don’t get in a flap! You’re in safe hands (though I have none), for I’m a Thinking Cap!”

-The Sorting Hat

“So I suppose you think that’s a reward for breaking the rules?” came an angry voice from just behind them. Hermione was stomping up the stairs, looking disapprovingly at the package in Harry’s hand.

“I thought you weren’t speaking to us?” said Harry.

“yes, don’t stop now,” said Ron, “it’s doing us so much good.”

Harry, Ron, & Hermione

“Troll- in the dungeons- thought you ought to know.” He then sank to the floor in a dead faint.

Professor Quirrell

But from that moment on, Hermione Granger became their friend. 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.

Harry

Lee Jordan was finding it difficult not to take sides.

“So- after that obvious and disgusting bit of cheating-“

“Jordan!” growled Professor McGonagall.

“I mean, after that open and revolting foul-“

Jordan, I’m warning you-“

“All right all right, Flint nearly kills the Gryffindor Seeker, which could happen to anyone, I’m sure, so a penalty to Gryffindor, taken by Spinner, who puts it away, no trouble, and we continue play, Gryffindor still in possession.”

Lee Jordan and Professor McGonagall

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that. Now, why don’t you put that admirable cloak back on and get off to bed?”

Dumbledore

“But who’d be that desperate?” he wondered aloud. “If you’re going to be cursed forever, death’s better, isn’t it?”

Harry to Firenze

“Yes- of course- but there’s no wood!” Hermione cried, wringing her hands.

“HAVE YOU GONE MAD?” Ron bellowed. “ARE YOU A WITCH OR NOT?”

-Hermione and Ron

Danger lies before you, while safety lies behind, two of us will help you, whichever you would find, one among us seven will let you move ahead, another will transport the drinker back instead, two among our number hold only nettle wine, three of us are killers, waiting hidden in a line, choose, unless you wish to stay here forevermore, to help you in your choice, we give you these clues four: First, however slyly the poison tries to hide you will always find some on nettle win’s left side; Second, different are those who stand at either end, But if you would move onward, neither is your friend; Third, as you see clearly, all are different size, neither dwarf nor giant holds death in their insides; Fourth, the second from the left and the second on the right, are twins once you taste them, though different at first site.

-Snape’s Enchantment

“What happened down in the dungeon between you and Professor Quirrell is a complete secret, so, naturally, the whole school knows.”

Dumbledore to Harry

“After all. the the organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.”

Dumbledore to Harry

“As much money and life as you could want! The two things most human beings would choose above all- the trouble is, human beings do have a knack of choosing precisely those things that are worst for them.”

Dumbledore to Harry

“Call him Voldemort, Harry. Always use the proper name for things. Fear of a name increases fear of a thing itself.”

Dumbledore to Harry

“Your mother died to save you. If there is one thing Voldemort cannot understand, it is love. He didn’t realize that love as powerful as your mother’s for you leaves its own mark. Not a scar, no visible sign… to have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever. It is your very skin. Quirrell, full of hatred, greed, and ambition, sharing his soul with Voldemort, could not touch you for this reason. It was agony to touch a person marked by something so good.”

Dumbledore to Harry

“There are all kinds of courage,” said Dumbledore, smiling,” Its takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends. I therefore award ten points to Mr. Neville Longbottom.”

Dumbledore
