Quick Quotes - Harry Potter Style
1. From Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: when Harry and Dumbledore talk about what Harry sees in the Mirror of Erised. It's such a beautiful moment that reminds us what is really important, while Harry's best friend sees himself as winning quidditch accolades and being named Head Boy, Harry sees his parents. And Dumbledore's comment to Harry is beautiful 'It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that.'
2. From Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets: when Harry frees Doby.
3. From Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: the discussion in the Shrieking Shack between Harry, Ron, Hermione, Lupin, Sirius, and Wormtail. I love backstories and this was one of the best, and one I had not completely figured out before it was revealed in the book.
4. From Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: the grave yard part when Voldemort comes 'back'. It's not exactly a happy part, but it was beautifully written and the detail of 'priori incantatem' was one of my favorites.
5. From Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: when Harry and Sirius discuss the Black Family Tree Tapestry. Again, I love backstory, but I also loved this moment between Harry and his Godfather.
6. From Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince:
7. From Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: the entire part from when Snape dies and gives his memory to Harry until Harry emerges from the pensieve knowing the truth. 'Look...at...me.'
