If you rate that joke a 9 ¾ out of 10, you can count yourself as a dedicated Harry Potter fan. And as a dedicated Potter fan, chances are you’ve read many inspiring Harry Potter quotes, such as, “Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
But, while there are many wise Harry Potter quotes, many of our favorite Harry Potter memories are filled with laughter. I mean, who can hold back a smile when thinking of Ron’s face when he drove his Dad’s car into the Hogwarts Whomping Willow?
These 19 hilarious Harry Potter quotes show J.K. Rowling was more than an inspiring, heartfelt writer… she was damn funny, too!

These quotes do more than make us laugh. They remind us what a magical world full of love, friendship and laughter that J.K. Rowling created for us. While the stories of Harry Potter teach us many lessons, more than anything, they show us we can create a magical universe for ourselves. Or instead of saying ‘create’, perhaps I should say ‘craft’…
