Harry Potter is 20 years among us, and on 20th anniversary of Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone‘s publish date, it is the perfect time to revisit the magic, the memories, the friends and the lessons we learned as we read the adventures of the British orphan Harry Potter, who long believed he was an unloved outcast by his aunt and uncle, but one day was told by a gruff, loving half giant on his 11th birthday, “You’re a wizard, Harry.” From that moment on Harry’s life completely changed, and so did that of J.K. Rowling’s readers, as we grew up with Harry, his best friends Ron Weasley and Hermoine Granger, and his beloved teachers at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Many lives have been touched by Rowling’s world, and she has taught her readers so much. The books are rich in lessons and values, but here are just a few integral lessons from the throughout the series, that hopefully will warm your heart and give you courage:

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

The Sorcerer’s Stone

“Fear of a name only increases fear of the thing itself.” 

The Sorcerer’s Stone

“The truth.” Dumbledore sighed. “It is a beautiful and terrible thing, and should therefore be treated with great caution.” 

The Sorcerer’s Stone

“It’s our choices Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”

The Chamber of Secrets

“Because that’s what Hermione does,” said Ron, shrugging. “When in doubt, go to the library.”

The Chamber of Secrets 

“Which only goes to show that the best of us must sometimes eat our words,’ Dumbledore went on, smiling.” 

The Chamber of Secrets

“But you know, happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”  

The Prisoner of Azkaban

“Don’t let the Muggles get you down.” 

The Prisoner of Azkaban 

“Besides, the world isn’t split into good people and Death Eaters. We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are.” 

The Prisoner of Azkaban

“If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.” 

The Goblet of Fire

“Dark and difficult times lie ahead. Soon we must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy.” 

The Goblet of Fire

“It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.” 

Tthe Goblet of Fire

“Numbing the pain for awhile will only make it worse when you finally feel it.” 

The Goblet of Fire

“Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.” 

The Goblet of Fire 

“Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike.” 

The Order of the Phoenix 

“According to Madam Pomfrey, thoughts could leave deeper scars than almost anything else.”   

The Order of the Phoenix

“Things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, if not always in the way we expect.” 

The Order of the Phoenix

“It is the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more.” 

The Half-Blood Prince

“‘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.'” 

The Half-Blood Prince

“People find it far easier to forgive others for being wrong than being right.” 

The Half-Blood Prince

“It is important, Dumbledore said, “to fight, and fight again, and keep fighting, for only then could evil be kept at bay, though never quite eradicated.” 

The Half-Blood Prince

“I’m going to keep going until I succeed — or die. Don’t think I don’t know how this might end. I’ve known it for years.” 

The Deathly Hallows

“Every human life is worth the same, and worth saving.” 

The Deathly Hallows

“It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well.” 

The Deathly Hallows

Harry Potter is a series of fantasy novels written by British author J. K. Rowling. The novels chronicle the life of a young wizard, Harry Potter, and his friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley, all of whom are students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The main story arc concerns Harry’s struggle against Lord Voldemort, a dark wizard who intends to become immortal, overthrow the wizard governing body known as the Ministry of Magic, and subjugate all wizards and muggles, a reference term that means non-magical people.
