For future reference, Harry, it is raspberry...although of course, if I were a Death Eater, I would have been sure to research my own jam preferences before impersonating myself.
I'm opposed to fundamentalism in any form.
Fawkes is a phoenix, Harry. Phoenixes burst into flame when it is time for them to die and are reborn from the ashes.

I was convinced that the only thing I wanted to do ever - was write novels.
It was only when he was back in bed that it struck Harry that Dumbledore might not have been quite truthful. But then, it had been a quite personal question.
Bangs and smoke were more often the marks of ineptitude than expertise.
I havenâ€™t got the heart to take the mickey out of him, even,â€ said Fred, looking over at Ronâ€™s crumpled figure. â€œMind you . . . when he missed the fourteenth . . .â€ He made wild motions with his arms as though doing an upright doggy-paddle. â€œWell, Iâ€™ll save it for parties, eh?
Oh, he knows how to play, little bitty baby Potter.
Failure, failure is so important, it doesnâ€™t get spoken about enough, we speak about success all the time.
There had been no more attacks since those on Justin and Nearly Headless Nick, and Madam Pomfrey was pleased to report that the Mandrakes were becoming moody and secretive, meaning that they were fast leaving childhood.
I don't think about who the audience is for my books.
I really like how the sixth book is going. A lot happens in the sixth book and a lot of questions are answered. I really have a sense that we are nearly there and it is time for answers, not more questions and clues, although obviously there are a few clues as I am not quite finished yet.
I want to commit the murder I was imprisoned for.
Get off me,â€ Harry spat, throwing Pettigrewâ€™s hands off him in disgust. â€œIâ€™m not doing this for you. Iâ€™m doing it because â€” I donâ€™t reckon my dad wouldâ€™ve wanted them to become killers â€” just for you.
Nothing like a nighttime stroll to give you ideas.
I don't need to publish to make a living. J. K. Row
Ah well... wand still in your jeans? Both buttocks still on? Okay, letâ€™s go.

This group had a kind of dark glamour within the castle. They were a motley collection; a mixture of the weak seeking protection, the ambitious seeking some shared glory, and the thuggish gravitating toward a leader who could show them more refined forms of cruelty.
Everybody finished the song at different times. At last, only the Weasley twins were left singing along to a very slow funeral march.
If you have to ask, youâ€™ll never know. If you know, you need only ask.
What's coming will come and we'll just have to meet it when it does.
I've only suffered writer's block badly once, and that was during the writing of Chamber of Secrets. I had my first burst of publicity about the first book and it paralysed me. I was scared the second book wouldn't measure up, but I got through it!
Lord Voldermort Has Risen Again.
Youth cannot know how age thinks and feels. But old men are guilty if they forget what it was to be young.
You - will - never - touch - our - children - again!' screamed Mrs. Weasley. Bellatrix laughed, the same exhilarated laugh her cousin Sirius had given as he toppled backwards through the veil, and suddenly Harry knew what was going to happen before it did. Molly's curse soared beneath Bellatrix's ou
And so rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.
Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs,â€ sighed George, patting the heading of the map. â€œWe owe them so much.â€ â€œNoble men, working tirelessly to help a new generation of law-breakers,â€ said Fred solemnly.
They make a fuss about Hogsmeade, but I assure you, Harry, it's not all it's cracked up to be. All right, the sweetshop's rather good, and Zonko's Joke Shop's frankly dangerous, and yes, the Shrieking Shack is always worth a visit, but really, Harry, apart from that, you're not missing anything.
