Fans of Harry Potter will tell you that they get drawn into the films and books for many different reasons. They find stories similar to their own, yes…even with magic intertwined.
There’s something truly special about the ability to believe in magic. To remain hopeful enough to anticipate something otherworldly entering your life and making it better. It takes the ability to remain unjaded, to embrace the downs in life just as you do the ups.
We see the characters experience magic alongside love and loss, growth and even regression, but more important – we see them experience it together.
When we’re running low on inspiration of our own, we frequently look to the journey of the characters in Harry Potter. We often find just the right spark to bring magic back to our lives.
So today, we picked out 12 quotes from Harry Potter that ignite that feeling of magic within us. We hope they do the same for you.
Sometimes you just get caught up in the way life can knock you down. It’s human, it’s not necessarily the best way to deal with our problems, but we’ve all been guilty of it. Instead of finding that joy and turning on that light, we curl up in the darkness.
This quote reminds us to find the light, all we’ve got to do is flip the switch and be willing to see that happiness and work towards it.
This is another one that resonates strongly with us. You know those seasons in life where you feel like the struggle isnt worth the effort? Why keep trying to be a light when it gets you nowhere? Yeah, we know that one too.
the truth is, we could act on the darkness within us, but it’s much more noble to be the light. Especially in overwhelming times of despair.
As writers, there’s no universal truth more important than this one. From a young age, we’ve been interested in everything that has to do with language.
Words can take you to another place. A story can transport you to another world. Songs can take you back to some of the best times and make those memories seem tangible. Reading a book with someone you love can bring you closer together. You can portray love and hope and beauty with words.
As the quote says, they can also cause injury, but if you can take someone’s pain and remedy it with words, shouldn’t we try?
That’s a magical thought, isn’t it?
You know that feeling when you get home, put on your favorite pajamas, and curl up in a warm blanket? Something about that feeling can take away worry and concern. It’s safe.
Dumbledore felt a sense of safety with Harry, even in an unsafe situation. It’s magical when you can find a sense of home within another person.
If this one doesn’t bring tears to your eyes, well, we’re not sure what would. Even after all this time…Snape loved Lily. His feelings never faded, never diminished, and never faltered.
It’s heartwrenching at the same time that it’s romantic. It’s haunting but it’s magic.
This one might not originally strike you as a feeling to bring bag spark of magic back, but that’s ultimately part of what makes it so important.
So often, we let our circumstances define us. We let ourselves get comfortable with who we’ve always been.
The magic is, it’s not who we were that matters, it’s who we grow to be. It’s the person we become as we get through what we’re given. It’s the way we can change our future entirely.
This one is reflective of the previous quote. There is magic to be found in the heart of who we are. It’s never worth losing your magic over someone who doesn’t see that.
Believing in the impossible takes a special type of courage. It requires both the ability and the desire to understand that change only comes from stepping past your comfort zone. It means taking a risk, but reaping the most beautiful rewards.
This one signifies the magic of letting go. It’s hard to release things, ideas, and people we love – even if circumstances require it. This brings the magic of hope – that we may embrace those things once again, in ways different than we expected.

There’s magic in the ability to love those who are no longer with us. They never really leave, they live on forever through us. In our hearts, in our memories, and in each new adventure we take. Love transcends.
