Weekly Geek Quote

I first found out about Weekly Geeks through the wonderful Erika Lynn. This weeks Weekly Geek Assignment is to pull a quote a day from your favorite books. I'll hopefully be able to pull a quote a day, but I decided to post one of my all time favorites today.

"He'll be famous...a legend...I wouldn't be surprised if today was known as Harry Potter day in the future ... there will be books written about Harry -- every child in our world will know his name!"-Minerva McGonagall, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

I love this quote because it really sums up the whole Harry Potter phenomenon, and it was written in the first book in the first chapter before J.K. Rowling really knew that what she was writing to be true in her wizarding world would become true in the real world too! That just amazes me every time I think about. I think that's the main reason this is my favorite quote from Harry Potter. I have a ton of other quotes I like from the series too, but there's just something really special about this one.

  3. There are so many great quotes from that series that I love but I never realized what you just said. That's a great point! Boy, if she only knew then what she was writing. She did an excellent job with that series and I was never bored during these huge books. I loved every minute of it! Thanks for bringing that up.
