Today is September 19th, meaning that it is Hermione Granger’s birthday. To celebrate, I thought I’d share The Brightest Witch of Her Age’s top 10 quotes from the books/movies!
“I hope you’re pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed – or worse, expelled. Now if you don’t mind, I’m going to bed.”
I’m pretty sure everyone knows this quote, but it’s still one of the best.
“Oh, HONESTLY, don’t you two read?”
(I think this about 12 times a day when I’m with my friends).
“At least no one on the Gryffindor team had to buy their way in! They got in on pure talent!”
“Harry caught the fish and I did my best with it! I notice I’m always the one who ends up sorting out the food; because I’m a girl, I suppose!”
Hermione noticing gender stereotypes on not liking what she sees is great. Bet that was the last time that Ron complained about Hermione’s cooking!
“It’s sort of exciting, isn’t it? Breaking the rules.”
This line never fails to make me smile.
“No, I’m not, I’m hoping to do some good in the world.”
I love this quote so much that I actually included a variation of it in my personal statement for university. It’s my cover photo on my personal Twitter, too. It’s definitely something I relate to!
“Actually, I’m highly logical, which allows me to look past the extraneous detail and perceive clearly that which others overlook.”
“I mean, you could claim that anything’s real if the only basis for believing in it is that nobody’s proved it doesn’t exist!”
“Just because you have the emotional range of a teaspoon doesn’t mean we all have!”
Another one that always makes me smile!
“Mudblood and proud of it.”
And so she should be.
So, there we have it. Happy Birthday to my favourite fictional character. No matter what wonderful actress plays her, she’s always brilliant!
