It’s hard to believe, but it’s been ten years since Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, the final book in J.K. Rowling’s beloved Harry Potter series, landed on bookshelves worldwide. The groundbreaking book series, as well as the eight film adaptations, were filled with iconic characters, unforgettable moments and an endless supply of inspirational quotes.
From page to screen, the Harry Potter series is responsible for some of the most inspiring quotes in pop-culture history, and let’s be honest we could all use some inspiration right now. For my latest post on The Blog That Must Not Be Named, I’ve decided to discuss and rank the most inspiring Harry Potter quotes of all-time!
