"With any relationship you can look back and say, 'Oh, I shouldn't have had that relationship; I shouldn't have been with that person.' But you were! It happened and it made them into who they are. So I think even if J.K. Rowling would feel a pull towards it, history is written. You can't change it. I think Ron and Hermione have something really beautiful and different. They're not a typical pairing, which I found more interesting."One of my favorite things (of many) about the Harry Potter book and film series is that it's not a cheesy romantic story on the outside — hello mystery, adventure, and badass female heroines — but at the heart of it, it is a love story. There are various romantic pairings that slowly develop over the course of the series, and there is, of course, the love of Harry's mother that steers the entire plot. So using GIFs and quotes from the movies and books, I'm sharing 32 of the best love lessons J.K.'s series has taught us about the magic of love.
"After all this time?"
"Always," said Snape.
"Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all, those who live without love."
"Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike."
"Oh, to be young and to feel love's keen sting."
"What do I care how 'e looks? I am good-looking enough for both of us, I theenk! All these scars show is zat my husband is brave!"
"Well? How was it?"
"Wet. I mean, she was sort of crying."
"That bad at it, are you?"
"Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open."
And will eat you up inside.
"Tonks deserves somebody young and whole."
"But she wants you."
"Actually, we don't really talk at all. Viktor's more of a physical being . . . I just mean he's not particularly loquacious. Mostly, he watches me study. It's a bit annoying, actually."
"How long do you think she'll stay mad at me?"
"Just keep talking about that little ball of light touching your heart, and she'll come 'round."
"To have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever."
"These girls, they're gonna kill me."
"It is impossible to manufacture or imitate love."
"Then she was kissing him as she never kissed him before, and Harry was kissing her back, and it was a blissful oblivion, better than firewhiskey; she was the only real thing in the world, Ginny, the feel of her, one hand on her back, the other in her long sweet-smelling hair."
"I'd just been thinking, if you had died, you'd have been welcome to share my toilet."
"Just because you have the emotional range of a teaspoon doesn't mean we all have."
"When you have seen as much of life as I have, you will not underestimate the power of obsessive love."
