Hello everyone I am Krisha. I am the author of Krisha’s Cozy Corner .Thank you so much Aanya for having me on your blog and participating in my blog tour . I am honoured to be here . So let me tell you a bit about myself.

 I am a 12 year old  and I always have been an avid reader and there is nothing more I like then curling up in a cozy corner with a good book. Reading books has been one of my favorite pastimes. After enjoying reading many fantastic book blogs for some time now, I thought that I would finally take the plunge and start a blog of my own and express my honest opinion about the books I read.  To know more about me don’t forget to visit my blog!!

From the wise words of Albus Dumbledore to the practical sayings of Hagrid to the musings of Luna Lovegood, here are the 15 of the most magical quotes that originated in the Potterverse. Here are the 15 most influential life lessons tucked into the pages of the beloved book series.

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities”

Book: Chamber of Secrets

Who said it: Albus Dumbledore

Explanation: After Harry emerges from the Chamber of Secrets, he expresses fear over the similarities between himself and Voldemort, telling Dumbledore that the Sorting Hat nearly placed him in Slytherin. However, the headmaster is quick to remind Harry that while he and Voldemort are both powerful wizards, Harry chooses to use his talents for good the true measure of greatness.

HAPPINESS CAN BE FOUND IN THE DARKEST OF TIMES…ONLY IF ONE REMEMBERS TO TURN ON THE LIGHT.

Book: Prisinor of Azkaban

Who said it: Albus Dumbledore

Explanation: We can find a way to be happy in any condition if we remember that we own our happiness. Unfortunately, most of us gave this authority to people and circumstances to make us happy and sad.

The truth.” Dumbledore sighed. “It is a beautiful and terrible thing, and should therefore be treated with great caution.”  

BOOK– The Philosopher’s Stone  

WHO SAID IT– Albus Dumbledore

EXPLANATION– Dumbledore shares these words with Harry while visiting him in the hospital wing following Harry’s battle with Professor Quirrell. Harry mentions some questions he wants answered about his history and his parents’ deaths, and Dumbledore urges him to treat the truth with reverence and caution. Ultimately, the headmaster decides that there are some answers Harry isn’t ready to hear—at least not yet.    

“Things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, if not always in the way we expect”

Movie: Order of the Phoenix

Who said it: Luna Lovegood

Context: OK, so this one is from the Order of the Phoenix movie, not the book, but it’s too good to pass up. When Bellatrix Lestrange kills Harry’s godfather, Sirius Black, during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, Harry is distraught. However, he finds comfort in the words of Luna, who despite having lost her mother at such a young age, maintains this positive outlook on life. This line also seems to foreshadow the Deathly Hallows scene when Harry is able to see and speak to Sirius again by using the resurrection stone.

Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open”

Book: Goblet of Fire

Who said it: Albus Dumbledore

Context: Following Voldemort’s return and Cedric Diggory’s death during the final task of the Triwizard Tournament, Dumbledore gathers the students of all three schools that participated in the tournament — Hogwarts, Beauxbatons and Durmstrang — in the Great Hall for an end-of-year speech, imploring them to come together to face the trouble that lies ahead. “Lord Voldemort’s gift for spreading discord and enmity is very great,” he says. “We can fight it only by showing an equally strong bond of friendship and trust.”

“What’s comin’ will come, an’ we’ll meet it when it does.” –The Goblet of Fire

Book: Goblet of Fire

Who said it: Rubeus Hagrid

Context: This Hagrid quote might not seem on the surface to be full of fiery inspiration, but his are words to live by just the same. As Hagrid says of Voldemort’s return, there’s “No good sittin’ worryin’ abou’ it”—He Who Must Not Be Named will strike when he strikes, and all the wizarding community can do is try and prepare in the meantime. But catastrophizing—devoting one’s whole life to dreading the worst possible outcome of a situation—will help no one. Hagrid’s pragmatic words are a reminder that fearing the future only harms our present. 

I am what I am an’ I’m not ashamed”

Book: Goblet of Fire

Who said it: Rubeus Hagrid

Context: This full quote reads, “I am what I am, an’ I’m not ashamed. ‘Never be ashamed,’ my ol’ dad used ter say, ‘there’s some who’ll hold it against you, but they’re not worth botherin’ with,’” and is said by Hagrid to Harry, Ron and Hermione after Rita Skeeter publicly outs the gamekeeper for being a half-giant — an ancestry that carries a stigma in the Potterverse. The insightful advice embodies Rowling’s overarching messa

Dumbledore explains their decision to a very bewildered Harry.

”YOU THINK THE DEAD WE LOVED EVER TRULY LEAVE US? …..YOU THINK THAT WE DON’T RECALL THEM MORE CLEARLY THAN EVER IN TIMES OF GREAT TROUBLE??….”

WHO SAID IT – ALBUS DUMBLEDORE

Neville held true to what he thought was right rather than giving into peer pressure, an act that Dumbledore deems worthy of recognition.

‘DO NOT PITY THE DEAD HARRY, PITY THE LIVING, AND ABOVE ALL THOSE WHO LIVE WITHOUT LOVE….”

BOOK– HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS
WHO SAID IT – ALBUS DUMBLEDORE

EXPLANATION – Moments before Harry finally kills Voldemort once and for all, Dumbledore urges him to not hesitate or overthink the prospect of ending another human’s life. Dumbledore’s prediction is that by killing Voldemort, Harry is actually saving countless lives in the process.
