The First Harry Potter Book Trivia


“Maybe he murdered Myrtle; that would’ve done everyone a favor. . . .”
J.K. Rowling,

“Harry Potter,” he said very softly. His voice might have been part of the spitting fire. “The Boy Who Lived.”
J.K. Rowling,

“She needs to sort out her priorities”
Ron Weasley

“I’m a what?” gasped Harry.
J.K. Rowling,

“I’m serious, Harry, don’t go.” But Harry only had one thought in his head, which was to get back in front of the mirror, and Ron wasn’t going to stop him.
J.K. Rowling,

“Daddy’s gone mad, hasn’t he?”
J.K. Rowling,

“The Chasers throw the Quaffle and put it through the hoops to score,” Harry recited. “So — that’s sort of like basketball on broomsticks with six hoops, isn’t it?”
J.K. Rowling,

“It is my baby and if I want to bring it out to play again, I will.”
J.K. Rowling

“Perhaps you have been looking in the wrong places.”
J.K. Rowling

“The owls are gathering; find out why soon.”
J.K. Rowling

“I will be sharing additional information I’ve been hoarding for years about the world of Harry Potter”
J.K. Rowling

“In this lifetime we are like Superman who must remain disguised as the nerdy newspaper journalist Clark Kent, or Harry Potter and his friends who are not allowed to do magic while they are on holiday, away from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry… but even Harry Potter and Clark Kent get to tap into their ‘special powers’ once in a while, especially when the going gets tough.”
Anthon St. Maarten,

“Second, the reason to embrace and celebrate these novels as the countercultural event that they are is due largely to the subliminal messages delivered by Harry and friends in their stolen wheelbarrows. Readers walk away, maybe a little softer on the occult than they were, but with story-embedded messages: the importance of a pure soul; love’s power even over death; about sacrifice and loyalty; a host of images and shadows about Christ and how essential ‘right belief’ is for personal transformation and victory over internal and external evils.”
John Granger,

“My point is that this Potter business has legs. It will run and run, and we must be utterly mad, as a country, to leave it to the Americans to make money from a great British invention. I appeal to the children of this country and to their Potter-fiend parents to write to Warner Bros and Universal, and perhaps, even, to the great J K herself. Bring Harry home to Britain—and if you want a site with less rainfall than Rome, with excellent public transport, and strong connections to Harry Potter, I have just the place.”
Boris Johnson

“Will there ever be an encyclopedia? Possibly. I would say two things about the encyclopedia: firstly, I’ve always said and I stand by it, whenever I do do a printed encyclopedia I would like all the proceeds to go to charity. Back in 1998 I never dreamt I personally I would be in the position that I could set up a large charitable foundation and personally do things for charity, and I’ve done other charity books already.”
J.K. Rowling

“We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on…that’s who we really are.”
J.K. Rowling
