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.

Rumford

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.
