It's no secret J.K. Rowling is the ultimate wordsmith and is an incredibly talented author. I, personally, have one of her quotes tattooed on my ribs and plan on getting another quote very soon!
In lieu of the new Harry Potter trailer being released yesterday, here are 20 Harry Potter quotes to prepare you for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them coming out next year!
