7 Harry Potter Quotes About Courage

You don’t have to be a Gryffindor to know the value of courage (but it probably does help). If Harry Potter taught us anything, it’s that true bravery can come from almost anywhere. I mean, look at Neville. Or Luna, Tonks, and Regulus Black. They weren’t all Gryffindors, but they were as nervy as anyone. And say what you want about Snape, but you can’t argue that he wasn’t brave in the end (and maybe just a little bit creepy).

Most of us don’t see a lot of wizard fights in our day-to-day lives, and many of us will never have to face off against a Hungarian Horntail or even a Blast-End Skrewt. But still, we all need an extra dose of courage now and then, and these Harry Potter quotes are here to give you that bravery boost:

1. “It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.”

— Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

2. Harry then did something that was both very brave and very stupid: He took a great running leap and managed to fasten his arms around the troll’s neck from behind.

3. “The thing about growing up with Fred and George,” said Ginny thoughtfully, “is that you sort of start thinking anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.

— J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

4. It was, he thought, the difference between being dragged into the arena to face a battle to the death and walking into the arena with your head held high. Some people, perhaps, would say that there was little to choose between the two ways, but Dumbledore knew — and so do I, thought Harry, with a rush of fierce pride, and so did my parents — that there was all the difference in the world.

— J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

5. “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

6. “Harry — you’re a great wizard, you know.”
“I’m not as good as you,” said Harry, very embarrassed, as she let go of him.
“Me!” said Hermione. “Books! And cleverness! There are more important things — friendship and bravery and — oh Harry — be careful!”

— J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

7. “I’m not going to be murdered,” Harry said out loud. “That’s the spirit, dear,” said his mirror sleepily.

— J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
