The Harry Potter series seems as though it has always composed a major portion of my life. Once I started, I could not stop. I was just captivated by this extraordinary and well-crafted world that is paralleled to our own. I feel as though I grew up alongside these characters and as a result, I walked away having learned numerous life lessons. Here is a list of my all-time favorite quotes from the entire series (from both the books and movies). *Most come from Dumbledore because of course they do.*
