To celebrate we’ve rounded up some of the best quotes from the Happy Potter series, in honour of the creator and the young wizard himself. Mostly from Dumbledore because obviously.

1. “Working hard is important. But there is something that matters even more, believing in yourself.” [Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, spoken by Harry Potter]

2. “Why would I go looking for somebody who wants to kill me?”
[Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, spoken by Harry Potter]
