Famous Hermione Granger Quotes from the Harry Potter Series

Hermione Granger quote
Witty, intelligent, clever, logical, and quite a bit of a nerd, Hermione is an idol for all the girls out there who aren't afraid to be themselves. She isn't the popular girl in school, she isn't liked by one and all, but she is still proud of what she is. Buzzle remembers this revolutionizing character, and presents to you a collection of some famous Hermione Granger quotes from the Harry Potter series.
"There are too many stupid girls in the media. Hermione's not scared to be clever. I think sometimes really smart girls dumb themselves down a bit, and that's bad. When I was nine or ten, I would get really upset when they tried to make me look geeky, but now I absolutely love it. I find it's so much pressure to be beautiful. Hermione doesn't care what she looks like. She's a complete tomboy."
― Emma Watson
Emma Watson, the actress who played the character of Hermione Granger par excellence, is one of the many women who idolizes this reel-life witch. She isn't anything like what you would call a "normal, warm, friendly, and approachable" girl. In fact, Harry and Ron themselves disliked her because she boasted her cleverness far too much! It was only after the two saved her from the troll in the first part of the series―Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone―that their friendship grew and formed a bond that was stronger and important than anything else in their lives.

The author of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling, herself admitted that Hermione is a lot like her in her younger years, a version of her that she isn't very proud of. "Why is that?", you might ask; well, as confident, clever, witty, and knowledgeable she might seem, the truth is that this character also has her share of insecurities and fears, the most important being the fear of failure. This is revealed in the Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban series, when a Boggart takes the form of Professor McGonagall during her 'Defence against the Dark Arts exam' and tells her that she has failed in all her exams.

There are a lot of things that Hermione Granger is adored for. In fact, Ron himself admits in the final book of the series that he and Harry wouldn't last a day without her help. Irrespective of being a muggle-born witch, she is brighter, sharper, and smarter than most of her peers. Her thirst for knowledge is recognized by Professor McGonagall, which is why she secretly gives Hermione a Time-Turner, a magical device through which she can go back in time and attend multiple classes. We can go on and on about our favorite Miss Granger, but the title says that we are to list some of her most famous quotes. The next section presents you with the same.
Memorable Hermione Granger Quotes
Most of the things Hermione said were "encyclopedic". We mean she literally was a walking encyclopedia, knowing everything about everything! Her witty words and thoughtful advice of the wise have always helped the three of them get out of some serious mess. Her impeccability with spells have always been a life-saving grace to Ron and Harry, and oftentimes, it was only because of her brilliant mind that some revolutionizing ideas came to the forefront. Remember, it was she who thought of making the Polyjuice Potion in the second series. Also, it was because of her suggestion that "Dumbledore's Army" was formed where Harry taught them how to practice magic in their defense. Let's refresh all these memories through the following collection of quotes.
Hermione Granger Quote
I've tried a few simple spells just for practice and it's all worked for me. Nobody in my family's magic at all, it was ever such a surprise when I got my letter, but I was ever so pleased, of course, I mean, it's the very best school of witchcraft there is, I've heard - I've learned all our course books by heart, of course, I just hope it will be enough - I'm Hermione Granger, by the way, who are you?
― Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Do either of you know what House you'll be in? I've been asking around, and I hope I'm in Gryffindor, it sounds by far the best; I hear Dumbledore himself was in it, but I suppose Ravenclaw wouldn't be too bad. . . . Anyway, we'd better go and look for Neville's toad. You two had better change, you know, I expect we'll be there soon.

Hermione: He called me a mudblood.
Hagrid: He did not!
Harry: What's a mudblood?
Hermione: It means dirty blood. Mudblood's a really foul name for someone who's muggle born. Someone with non-magic parents. Someone like me. It's not a term one usually hears in civilized conversation.

Harry: Well you can tell Ronald...
Hermione: I'm not an owl!

Twitchy little ferret, aren't you, Malfoy?

He's been poisoned, you daft dimbo! And as a matter of fact, I've always found him interesting.
― Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Hermione: Don't you understand how she must be feeling? Well, obviously she's feeling sad about Cedric, and therefore confused about liking Harry, guilty about kissing him, conflicted because Umbridge is pressing to sack her mum from the Ministry, and frightened about failing her OWLs because she's so busy worrying about everything else.
Ron: One person couldn't feel all that. They'd explode!
Hermione: Just because you've got the emotional range of a teaspoon...
― Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Hermione Granger Quote

Hermione Granger Quote
Hermione: Undetectable Extension Charm. Tricky, but I think I've done it okay; anyway, I managed to fit everything we need in here... I told you at the Burrow, I've had the essentials packed for days, you know, in case we needed to make a quick getaway. I packed your rucksack this morning, Harry, after you changed, and put it in here...I just had a feeling...
Ron: You're amazing, you are.

― Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Mudblood, and proud of it!
― Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Mudblood she was, and while it was the meanest thing one could say to anyone in the wizard world, Hermione didn't care. She, in fact, was proud of the fact that she comes from a non-magic family. Her confidence in herself, along with the acceptance of what she is and where she comes from is what adds to her charm. She is inspirational, witty, funny too, with a tinge of her sarcastic humor. It is these characteristics of hers that make her an idol, an epitome of both a genuine human being and a brilliant witch; moreover a strong, clever, and responsible female who leaves no stone unturned to help her friends and fight for a noble cause. Hermione Granger, we love you!
