Favourite Quotes from the Last Books I Read

Another installment!


Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K Rowling

“Let us step into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.”
“His hand closed automatically around the fake Horcrux but in spite of everything, in spite of the dark and twisting path he saw stretching ahead for himself, in spite of the final meeting with Voldemort he knew must come whether in a month in a year or in ten, he felt his heart lift at the thought that there was still one last golden day of peace left to enjoy with Ron and Hermione.”
“We must try not to sink beneath our anguish, Harry, but battle on.”
“Age is foolish and forgetful when it underestimates youth.”


Middlemarch by George Eliot

“The troublesome ones in a family are usually either the wits or the idiots.”
“Our deeds still travel with us from afar/And what we have been makes us what we are.”
“It is always fatal to have music or poetry interrupted.”
“I had some ambition. I meant everything to be different with me. I thought I had more strength and mastery. But the most terrible obstacles are such as nobody can see except oneself.”
“Mortals are easily tempted to pinch the life out of their neighbor’s buzzing glory, and think that such killing is no murder.”

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K Rowling

“After all this time?”



“Every second he breathed, the smell of the grass, the cool air on his face, was so precious: To think that people had years and years, time to waste, so much time it dragged, and he was clinging to each second.”
“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it.”
“The scar had not pained Harry for nineteen years. All was well.”
“It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well.”
“Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all those who live without love.”
