10 Harry Potter Quotes On Love

by Alex Weiss

The Harry Potter series, summed up, is about love. The power of a mother's love saved Harry from dying the night his parents did. Snape's love for Lily kept Harry safe. Harry's ability to love became his biggest strength. The list can go on. J.K. Rowling taught us all from a young age that the power of love should never be underestimated.

We love the series, we love the characters, we love the magic. Falling in love with the books was the first step, and now here we are, years later still madly in love with the series. I can't imagine another book that could ever take its place, and for that, I think most Potterheads out there would all agree that Harry Potter was, and still is, our first love.

Speaking of all this love, Rowling wrote some incredible quotes about love that will always be relevant. Sometimes you just need a little extra love, or a really beautiful quote to get you through the day. Especially with Valentine's Day quickly approaching, read up one some of your favorite Harry Potter quotes and text a few to your loved ones! If you're feeling really fancy, maybe write a special love letter using some of these amazing quotes:

3. There was a clatter as the basilisk fangs cascaded out of Hermione's arms. Running at Ron, she flung them around his neck and kissed him full on the mouth. Ron threw away the fangs and broomstick he was holding and responded with such enthusiasm that he lifted Hermione off her feet.

"Is this the moment?" Harry asked weakly, and when nothing happened except that Ron and Hermione gripped each other still more firmly and swayed on the spot, he raised his voice. "OI! There's a war going on here!"

Ron and Hermione broke apart, their arms still around each other. "I know, mate," said Ron, who looked as though he had recently been hit on the back of the head with a Bludger, "so it's now or never, isn't it?"
