Quotes Micheline Liked

J.K. Rowling
“Do you remember me telling you we are practicing non-verbal spells, Potter?"
"Yes," said Harry stiffly.
"Yes, sir."
"There's no need to call me "sir" Professor."
The words had escaped him before he knew what he was saying.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

J.K. Rowling
“It is the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

J.K. Rowling
“He accused me of being Dumbledore's man through and through."
"How very rude of him."
"I told him I was."
Dumbledore opened his mouth to speak and then closed it again. Fawkes the phoenix let out a low, soft, musical cry. To Harry's intense embarrassment, he suddenly realized that Dumbledore's bright blue eyes looked rather watery, and stared hastily at his own knee. When Dumbledore spoke, however, his voice was quite steady.
"I am very touched, Harry.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

J.K. Rowling
“Harry looked around; there was Ginny running toward him; she had a hard blazing look in her face as she threw her arms around him. And without thinking, without planning it, without worrying about the fact that fifty people were watching, Harry kissed her. After several long moments, or it might have been half an hour-or possibly several sunlit days- they broke apart.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

J.K. Rowling
“When we come face-to-face with one down a dark alley, we're going to be having a shufti to see if it's solid, aren't we, we're not going to be asking, 'Excuse me, are you the imprint of a departed soul?”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

J.K. Rowling
“You are protected, in short, by your ability to love!”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

J.K. Rowling
“Dumbledore would have been happier than anybody to think that there was a little more love in the world.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

J.K. Rowling
“And without thinking, without planning it, without worrying about the fact that fifty people were watching, Harry kissed her.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

J.K. Rowling
“When we were in Diagon Alley,' Harry began, but Mr. Weasley forstalled him with a grimace.
Am I about to discover where you, Ron, and Hermione disappeared to while you were supposed to be in the back room of Fred and George's shop?'
How did you...?'
Harry, please. You're talking to the man who raised Fred and George.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

J.K. Rowling
“I am not worried, Harry," said Dumbledore, his voice a little stronger despite the freezing water. "I am with you.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Kayla I agree with your thoughts on Ginny. J.K. had her in the plot all along. I noticed she was their. J.K was just slowly building her character. :)

Draco as a Death Eater! I know right! Harry's hunches are always right. Why didn't Hermione and Ron just listen to him...


Micheline I know right?! I was so surprised when I first heard people saying she came out of nowhere's and J.K. was at fault for not putting her in the forefront more.

LOL! I kept shaking my head thinking: ''he's right! quit arguing with him and DO SOMETHING'' :)


Kayla lol :)
