Luna Lovegood. Say the name, and you picture a dreamy-eyed girl with dirty blond hair framing a pale, pale face. Things don’t stop at her odd, yet arresting looks – the witty retorts and weird observations made Luna Lovegood a darling among numerous Pottermaniacs. Entertainism brings you a fantastic compilation of Luna’s funniest, silliest, and most profound quotes.
The girl gave off an aura of distinct dottiness. Perhaps it was the fact that she had stuck her wand behind her left ear for safekeeping, or that she had chosen to wear a necklace of Butterbeer caps, or that she was reading a magazine upside down.
With an introduction like that, Rowling left us in little doubt that Luna Lovegood was going to be the most wackiest of the lot―a lot that already had Fred and George Weasley in it.
Luna Lovegood made her debut in the fifth book of the series, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. She’s the daughter of Xenophilius Lovegood, and belonged to the House of Ravenclaw at Hogwarts. She made an unusual pairing with Harry as being one of the very few people among his peers to have seen the thestrals―visible only to those who have witnessed death. As an active and enthusiastic member of Dumbledore’s Army, Luna demonstrated exemplary wizarding skills fighting off death eaters in the Ministry of Magic, as well as helping Harry locate the lost diadem of Rowena Ravenclaw in the final Battle of Hogwarts.
