Luna Lovegood

Yes, you could say we have a specific character we turn to over others when we need life guidance. Luna Lovegood has so many great quotes that she gets her own section. While she gets portrayed as the weird one, if you pay attention to her actual words, there’s nothing but wisdom from the rambunctiously radiant Ravenclaw.

Some of her best inspirational advice

  • “Things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, if not always in the way we expect.”
  • “Don’t worry, you are just as sane as I am.”
  • “Wit beyond measure is a man’s greatest treasure.”
  • “Being different isn’t a bad thing. It means that you are brave enough to be yourself.”
  • “Always be yourself because if you’re not yourself who are you?”

Sharing your love of literature with your child while providing them with inspirational sayings to be there for them whenever they need is pretty special. The quotes coming from Harry Potter characters make it even more magical. And, if you don’t mind marking up books, let your child highlight any quotes that speak to their little soul.

We all have mantras or quotes we say to ourselves when we need that extra bit of help to get through a moment. Share these inspirational quotes with your kiddos to have in their pocket while keeping the next generation of Potterheads going strong.
