The Harry Potter franchise marked not only the history of world cinema, but also the lives of thousands of fans of the Hogwarts wizards. The authenticity of the characters’ lines warms the hearts of those who watch the saga to this day!
We selected 12 striking phrases to keep alive the Lessons JK Rowling’s Beloved Wizards Taught Us during releases of Warner Bros Studio films. Shall we check it out together?
1) The fear of a name only increases the fear of the thing itself
Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002).
We start with the wisest little witch of the trio that marked generations (wizards and muggles alike!). In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Hermione points out how the fear of speaking the name Voldemort only reinforces the power they have over the Wizarding World.
2) We all have light and darkness within us, what matters is the side from which we decide to act
Harry Potter and Sirius Black in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007).
In the fifth film of the saga, Sirius Black meets his godson, Harry Potter, and teaches that “the world is not divided between good people and Death Eaters”. You have to see the nuances!
3) The things we lose always come back to us, but not always in the way we expect
Luna Lovegood and Harry in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 (2010).
The sweet and naive way of the witch Luna Lovegood does not mean that she has nothing to teach us – on the contrary! In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1, Luna shows her friend that patience is key in times of crisis.
4) It’s not our skills that reveal who we really are. It’s our choices.
Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002).
Dumbledore is the master of lines full of secrets and teachings of the franchise. In the second film of the franchise, for example, the director of Hogwarts manages to calm Harry down by reminding him that although the student has abilities similar to those of Lord Voldemort, his choices are what will differentiate him from the villain.
5) It’s leviÔsa, and not leviosÁ!
Ron Wesley and Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001).
One of the most classic and revived phrases on the internet, for sure, belongs to Hermione Granger and her mocking way, when she tries to teach her friend Ron how to correctly pronounce the charm of levitation.
6) I am what I am and I’m not ashamed
Rubeus Hagrid in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005).
In the fourth Harry Potter film, Hagrid continues to win us over with his humble way, remembering what his father said: “Never be ashamed, there are some who will use it against you, but they are not worth bothering with”.
7) There is no such thing as good and evil. Only power, and those too weak to possess it
Lord Voldemort in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001).
Although Lord Voldemort’s attempt to regain his power in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone failed, the wizard showed his ability to seduce and influence anyone he wanted even in the final scene of the film.
8) Silly baboons babbling in a flock
Minerva McGonagall and Ron Wesley in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005).
Although Minerva McGonagall has a more serious posture throughout the franchise, one of the funniest scenes that’s when she prepares the wizarding students for the Yule Ballavoiding the adolescent behavior she calls “silly baboons babbling in a pack”!
9) Do not pity the dead. Pity the living. And above all, those who live without love
Yet another dialogue between Potter and Dumbledore that has become a pearl of wisdom in pop culture. The line is spoken by Albus Dumbledore shortly after Harry takes pity on one of Voldemort’s soul fragments in the seventh film.
10) Why spiders? Why couldn’t it be: Follow the butterflies?
Ron Wesley is funny even when he doesn’t mean to. The wizard is terrified of spiders and uttered this line when he was on his way to the Dark Forest with Harry in the second film of the saga.
11) I solemnly swear that I will not do good

In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, we met the incredible Marauder’s Map. The Wesley twins teach Harry the password to reveal the artifact’s information, becoming yet another iconic phrase in the franchise.
12) After all this time? Ever!
Lilian Potter and Severus Snape in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 (2011).
Severus Snape’s love for Lily Potter gets the real spotlight it deserves in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Dumbledore questions whether Snape still has feelings for Harry’s mother and the wizard teacher says the most romantic answer in the fans’ view.
