[edit] Ginny Weasley Book Quotes

Here are some of the funny and great quotes from the Harry Potter series.

"Because - oh shut up laughing, you two - because they've both just been turned down by girls they asked to the ball!"

"The thing about growing up with Fred and George is that you sort of start thinking anything's possible if you've got enough nerve."

"Well, that was a bit stupid of you," said Ginny angrily, "seeing as you don't know anyone but me who's been possessed by You-Know-Who, and I can tell you how it feels."

"I couldn't think what to get you, I didn't know what would be useful. Nothing too big, because you wouldn't be able to take it with you. So then I thought, I'd like you to have something to remember me by, you know, if you meet some veela when you're off doing whatever your doing."

"Actually, he sort of screamed at her. It was a bit frightening."
