A Harry Potter Friday Favorites

I bypass the originally scheduled monthly favorites post this July in favor of a themed favorites. For one, I honestly can't think of many things to include on a favorites list this month. Aside from my favorite TV show (which is either Teen Wolf or Masters of Sex) and my favorite song ("Firestone" by Kyogo), I haven't done very much other than read Harry Potter books and live everyday life, the latter of which seems so, I don't know, muggle compared to the former :) Also, secondly, today is Harry Potter's birthday - 

Happy Birthday, Harry Potter!

- and so the fact that I recently reread Harry Potter and that his birthday fell on a friday seemed like too good of a coincidence to pass up. My favorite Harry Potter quotes seemed like a good use of such a coincidence. Between the seven books, there are dozens of memorable quotes that inspire you, make you laugh or make you cry - all of which have become life lessons for me. But I've limited this favorites list to ten:
