Harry Potter 6 Quotes

Header by Samulli
HP fans are flocking to the movies for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in July. I am re-reading the book to remember some details and be more aware of what's showing (and not) in the movie. Out of the many quotes in the book that I like, amuse me or are relavant to me, here are 13 of them:

1. People find it far easier to forgive others for being wrong than for being right.~ Hermione Granger on Dumbledore, p. 96

2. Why are you worrying about You-Know-Who?You should be worrying about U-No-Poo- The Constipation Sensation that's gripping the nation.~ Sign on the Weasley Twins Joke Shop, p.116

3. It is impossible to manufacture or imitate love. When you have seen asmuch of life as I have, you will not underestimate the power of obsessive love.~ Horace Slughorn to Malfoy and Nott, p. 186

4. We teach you not only to use magic but to control it.~ Dumbledore to Riddle, p.273

5. Stop bossing me around.~ Ron to Hermione, p. 293

6. The important thing to remember when Apparating are the three D's: Destination, Determination, Deliberation.~ Twycross, p. 384

7. We all think our subject's most important.~ Professor Slughorn to Professor Trelawney, p. 319

8. Jinxes go in and out of fashion like everything else.~ Lupin to Harry, p. 336

9. I prefer flying.~Harry to Ron, p. 386

10. It's important to fight, and fight again and keep fighting, for only then
could evil be kept at bay.~ Dumbledore
And the following do not have page numbers because I got them from the net.

11. Is a man alive if he can't be killed?~ Cornelius Fudge

12. Let us step into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure~ Albus Dumbledore

13. Don't count your owls before they are delivered.~ Albus Dumbledore.
