Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - Quote Compendium


Quote Compendium: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

As promised, here is the quote compendium for the first novel in the Harry Potter Series, Harry Potter and  the Philosopher's Stone.
I've gotten these quotes from my personal copy that is part of the US book set edition. The book has 309 pages and keep in mind that this edition of the novel has replaced Philosopher's with Sorcerer's

“Scars can come in handy. I have one myself above my left knee that is a perfect map of the London Underground.” 
- Prof. Albus Dumbledore, Chapter 1, pg. 15 

I remember every wand I've ever sold, Mr. Potter. Every single wand. It so happens that the phoenix whose tail feather is in your wand, gave another feather--just one other. It is very curious indeed that you should be destined for this wand when its brother--why, its brother gave you that scar...Curious indeed how these things happen. The wand chooses the wizard, remember..."- Mr. Ollivander, Chapter 5, pg. 85

“’Fred, you next,’ the plump woman said. 
‘I’m not Fred, I’m George,’ said the boy. ‘Honestly, woman, you call yourself our mother? Can’t you tell I’m George?’ 
‘Sorry, George, dear.’ 
‘Only joking, I am Fred,'" 
- The Weasley's, Chapter 6, pg. 92 

 "The narrow path had opened suddenly on to the edge of a great black lake. Perched atop a high mountain on the other side, its windows sparkling in the starry sky, was a vast castle with many turrets towers." 
- Chapter 6, pg. 111

“I don’t expect you will really understand the beauty of the softly simmering cauldron with its shimmering fumes, the delicate power of liquids that creep through human veins, bewitching the mind, ensnaring the senses…I can teach you how to bottle fame, brew glory, even stopper death – if you aren’t as big a bunch of dunderheads as I usually have to teach.” 
- Professor Snape, Chapter 8, pg. 137 

“I hope you’re pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed – or worse, expelled. Now, if you don’t mind, I’m going to bed.” 
- Hermione, Chapter 9, pg. 162

“Strange how nearsighted being invisible can make you.” 
- Professor Dumbledore, Chapter 12, pg. 213 

“It shows us nothing more or less than the deepest, most desperate desire of our hearts. You, who have never known your family, see them standing around you. Ronald Weasley, who has always been overshadowed by his brothers, sees himself standing alone, the best of all of them. However, this mirror will give us neither knowledge or truth. Men have wasted away before it, entranced by what they have seen, or been driven mad, not knowing if what it shows is real or even possible.” 
- Professor Dumbledore, Chapter 12, pg. 213 

“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that.” 
- Professor Dumbledore, Chapter 12, pg. 214 

“’Harry – you’re a great wizard, you know.’ 
‘I’m not as good as you,’ said Harry, very embarrassed, as she let go of him. 
‘Me!’ said Hermione. ‘Books! And cleverness! There are more important things – friendship and bravery and – oh Harry – be careful!’” 
- Hermione and Harry, Chapter 16, pg. 287 

There is no good and evil, there is only power, and those too weak to seek it...- Professor Quirrell, Chapter 17, pg. 291
“After all, to the well-organised mind, death is but the next great adventure.” 
- Professor Dumbledore, Chapter 17, pg. 297 

"Fear of a name increases fear of the thing itself.” 
- Professor Dumbledore, Chapter 17, pg. 298 

“If there is one thing Voldemort cannot understand, it is love. He didn’t realise that love as powerful as your mother’s for you leaves it own mark. Not a scar, no visible sign…to have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever. It is in your very skin. Quirrell, full of hatred, greed, and ambition, sharing his soul with Voldemort, could not touch you for this reason. It was agony to touch a person marked by something so good.” 
- Professor Dumbledore, Chapter 17, pg. 299

“There are all kinds of courage. It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends. I therefore award ten points to Mr. Neville Longbottom.” 
- Professor Dumbledore, Chapter 17, pg. 306
