Ultimate quiz for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone fans: Who said those quotes? | Books | Entertainment

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone 2001 movie trailer

In 1997, the book (also renamed Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in the United States the following year) introduced generations of fans to the wizarding world of Harry, Hermione and Ron, as well as teachers, friends and enemies (including some who were sort of all three) like Snape, McGonagall, Dumbledore, and Hagrid. With a special 25th anniversary edition released to celebrate, the original novel has so far sold over 120 million copies, which means most of us have read it. But how well do you know the books and who said exactly what? Some quotes may seem a bit easy, but there are three points available for each. You must give their first and last names and which chapter the quote is from, giving you the chance to win up to 48 points.

1. He will become famous – a legend…every child in our world will know his name!

2. Harry – you are a wizard.

3. The wand chooses the wizard, remember… I think we should expect great things from you, Mr. Potter… After all, He Whose Name Must Not Be Named did great things – terrible, yes, but great.

4. All you have to do is walk straight to the barrier between platforms nine and ten. Don’t stop and don’t be afraid to fall on it, it’s very important. Better to do it a bit of a run if you’re nervous.

5. Welcome to a new year at Hogwarts. Before we begin our banquet, I would like to say a few words. And here they are: Nitwit! Complaining! End of series! Twist! Thanks.

6. You are here to learn the subtle science and exact art of potion making. As there are few stupid wand gestures here, many of you will find it hard to believe it’s magic. I don’t expect you to truly understand the beauty of the cauldron gently simmering with its shimmering fumes, the delicate power of the liquids seeping through human veins, bewitching the mind, bewitching the senses… I can teach you how to bottle the glory, infuse the glory, even put a cork on death – if you’re not such a big bunch of jerks as I usually have to teach.

7. Your father would have been proud. He himself was an excellent Quidditch player.

8. You said it wrong… It’s Wing-gar-dium Levi-o-sa, make the “gar” very long.

9. I’m so sorry… for all those people who have to stay at Hogwarts for Christmas because we don’t want them home.

10. Longbottom, if brains were gold, you’d be poorer than Weasley, and that’s saying something.

11. I’m telling you, this dragon is the most horrible animal I’ve ever met, but the way Hagrid talks about it, you’d think it was a sweet little bunny. When he bit me, he blamed me for scaring him. And when I left, he was singing a lullaby to her.

12. You want to be more careful. Hanging around like that, people will think you’re up to something. And Gryffindor really can’t afford to drop any more points, can he? … Be warned, Potter – no more wanderings at night and I’ll personally see to it that you are expelled. Have a good day.

13. Books! And the trick! There are more important things – friendship and bravery and – oh Harry – be careful!

14. Your mother died to save you. If there’s one thing Voldemort doesn’t understand, it’s love. He didn’t realize that love as powerful as your mother for you leaves its own mark. Not a scar, no visible signs.

15. Yes, Severus seems like the type, doesn’t he? So useful to fly it like an overgrown bat.

16. There are all kinds of courage… It takes a lot of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends. So I give ten points to Mr. Neville Longbottom.
