12 Harry Potter Quotes To Inspire You To Never Give Up

If there’s one thing lovers of the Harry Potter series seem to love most, its inspiring Harry Potter quotes. Or, at least, they’re the thing you love most after the books, the movies, the theme park, the Halloween costumes, and following Emma Watson on Twitter. (Seriously, sometimes the enthusiastic exchange of one Harry Potter quote after another seems like the only reason the Internet has survived as long as it has.)

One thing Hermione, Ron, Harry, and the whole crew of unforgettable characters who joined them between the pages of J.K. Rowling’s best-selling books over the years didn’t do was give up. Like, ever. Not when faced with dangerous spells, destruction, death, or even worse — expulsion. So naturally, all of the Harry Potter books are filled with tons of inspirational words of wisdom about surviving, thriving, and above all never, ever losing hope.

If Harry, Ron, and Hermione can keep on keepin’ on after all the struggles that crossed their paths time and time again, then I have no doubt you can too. Here are 12 Harry Potter quotes about not giving up that will definitely inspire you to keep going no matter what you’re going through. Wingardium Leviosa on.
