Happy birthday, J.K. Rowling! Even though the British author has concluded her Harry Potter book and film series, she still has a lot to celebrate on her 47th birthday. J.K.

We're also eagerly awaiting her novel for adults The Casual Vacancy, which is out in September.

J.K. has created strong, smart, and complex ladies for the Harry Potter franchise who have some of the best one-liners. In honor of her birthday — which she shares with her boy wizard character, Harry Potter — let's look back at the other life advice uttered from the good, the bad, and the psycho witches of the Harry Potter books and films (including Molly Weasley's infamous foulmouthed line!).
