Okay so this post is one for the Potterheads. I know there are many people out there who do not see Harry Potter as any sort of literary classic or masterpiece, but the fact is that I think it is one the best book series in existence. So here are My Top 10 Favorite Harry Potter Quotes, some of them I love for their profoundness, some of them for how iconic they are and some just because they are amusing.

“There will be no foolish wand-waving or silly incantations in this class. As such, I don’t expect many of you to appreciate the subtle science and exact art that is potion-making.

I can tell you how to bottle fame, brew glory, and even put a stopper in death. Then again, maybe some of you have come to Hogwarts in possession of abilities so formidable that you feel confident enough to not pay attention!” — Professor Severus Snape, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
