Originally titled "Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone" this book/movie is the first installment to this best-selling series and introduces us to the Boy Who Lived, Harry Potter who miraculously escaped death from Lord Voldemort, a powerful but evil wizard who's mission was to eliminate all non-magical beings in the world. On his 11th birthday, Harry meets a giant named Hagrid who tells him that he is a wizard and has been enrolled in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Harry meets his future best friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger along with many other witches and wizards who already know of his backstory of survival against He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. Harry soon learns about the Sorcerer's Stone and that there is trouble brewing from the Dark Lord who has been gone for years but has returned with vengeance.

So let's fly back in time (no time turner needed) with these memorable quotes from the first movie that marks the beginning of endless adventures and, of course, magic! Almost every Potterhead should remember all of these quotes from "Harry Potter & the Sorcerer's Stone" or else can you really call yourself a true Potterhead? Even if you're a wizard who has lost their way, these quotes will awaken the magic within you and take you back to when this fantasy series first stole our hearts over twenty years ago.
