30 Awesome Quotes from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Thousands of words make up Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire, the fourth book in J.K. Rowling's fantasy series. Plenty of wonderful, memorable descriptions and phrases make us laugh, cry, and terrify us about Harry's next trial in facing Lord Voldemort. Here are 30 great quotes that are true stand-outs to me. What are some of your favorite book quotes? I'd love to hear from you in the comments!

 Dear Professor Dumbledore, Sorry to bother you but my scar hurt this morning. Yours Sincerely, Harry Potter A letter Harry considers writing (page 21)

"That is no ordinary scar." - Dumbledore (page 30)

"Boys." - Hermione (page 50)

 "Merlin's beard! Harry? Harry Potter?" - Amos Diggory (page 72)

"Great man, Dumbledore." - Hagrid (throughout the book) 

"I like a healthy breeze around my privates, thanks!" - old Archie (page 84)

"CONSTANT VIGILANCE!" - Madeye Moody (page 213) 

"When you've put both of your eyes back in, you'll be able to see who's just arrived." - Hermione (253)

“Yeah, well, yeh get weirdoes in every breed.”  - Hagrid (page 265)

"Our readers love a rebel." - Rita Skeeter (page 305)

"Bong-sewer." - Hagrid trying to greet Madame Maxime in French(page 324)

"Yeah, you can have a word. Good-bye!" - Harry Potter (page 362)

"It's not like I *try* to blow things up, exactly, it just sorta happens. You gotta admit though, fire is fascinating." - Seamus

“Just because it’s taken you three years to notice, Ron, doesn’t mean no else has noticed that I’m a girl!” - Hermione (page 400)

"...There's some who'd even pretend they just had big bones rather than stand up an' say --- 'I am what I am, an'  I'm not ashamed. 'Never be ashamed'....'there's some who'll hold it against you, but they're not worth botherin' with'." - Hagrid (page 456)

"Slow, aren't you?" - Moaning Myrtle (page 463) 

At that moment, Harry fully understood for the first time why people said Dumbledore was the only wizard Voldemort had ever feared. The look upon Dumbledore's face as he stared down at the unconscious form of Mad-Eye Moody was more terrible than Harry could have ever imagined. There was no benign smile upon Dumbledore's face, no twinkle in the eyes behind the spectacles. There was cold fury in every line of the ancient face; a sense of power radiated from Dumbledore as though he were giving off burning heat.  

Neville’s aim was so poor that he kept accidentally sending much heavier things flying across the room - Professor Flitwick, for instance.  (page 479)

She seemed to be taking the library's lack of useful information on the subject as a personal insult; it had never failed her before (page 486)

"I wouldn't a talking point wouldn't?" - Fred (page 487)

"There you go, Harry! You weren't being thick after all - you were showing moral fiber!" - Ron (page 507)

 "Kill the spare..." - Voldemort (page 638) 

"Understanding is the first step to acceptance, and only with acceptance can there be recovery." - Dumbledore (page 680)

"Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it. You have shown bravery beyond anything I could have expected of you. I ask you to demonstrate your courage on more time. I ask you to tell us what happened." - Dumbledore (page 695)

"You fail to recognize that it matters not what is born, but what they grow to be!" - Dumbledore (page 708) 

“I told him to take the cup with me” - Harry Potter (page 714)

"No good sittin' worryin' abou' it. What's comin' will come, an' we'll meet it when it does." - Hagrid (page 719) 

"...we are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided." - Dumbledore (page 723)

"We can fight it only by showing an equally strong bond of friendship and trust. Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open." - Dumbledore (page 723)

"...we are all facing dark and difficult times."  - Dumbledore (page 724)

As Hagrid had said, what would come, would come.... and he would have to be ready to face it when it did. (page 734)
