Harry Potter is full of positive life lessons for children. Positivity, kindness, courage and determination are imbedded in every page. One of the main themes I love most about Harry Potter is the power of friendship. There are so many inspirational Harry Potter quotes about friendship that highlight the importance of loyalty and compassion. Here are just a few of my favourites.
Whilst I don’t necessarily agree with Hermione playing down her own strengths, I do love the emphasis on courage and being a good friend. Hermione says this words to Harry in an attempt to show him what a good wizard he is, bolstering him before he faces potential danger. She’s well known for her intelligence but I just love her empathy and loyalty here in Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone.
The Potter family take loyalty very seriously as this quote about friendship shows. Lupin explains to Harry that trusting and believing in your friends is a positive attribute to have, not a negative one. Harry, like his dad, trusts his friends implicitly and that level of loyalty should be something to be admired.
Poor Dobby. He was a loyal friend to Harry Potter, putting himself in real danger. As he lay dying (within Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) Dobby utters these words showing just how important his friendship with Harry was to him.
Friendship is so important throughout the series and this Harry Potter quote from The Prisoner Of Azkaban embodies that perfectly. The bonds of love and loyalty are something that characters are willing to die for. Sirius is horrified that Pettigrew was willing to sacrifice his friends in order to save his friends, when they would all have died for him.
This is one of the most simple Harry Potter quotes about friendship but also one of the most powerful. It was this unwavering loyalty and commitment to their friendship that made Harry, Hermione and Ron such a formidable trio. When Hermione says these words to Harry at the end of Half-Blood Prince, she is vocalising the depth of their friendship, despite the dangers that lay ahead of them.
