RAISE YOUR WANDS | Alan Rickman 

I’m absolutely gutted over the news of Alan Rickman’s passing. All I want to do is leave work and read every single Harry Potter book because Snape is one of the most complex, flawed, brave, wonderful and all around amazing character. Forever thankful to Alan Rickman for bringing him alive in a way that no other man  could. All Potterheads are indebted to him, forever. Please enjoy some of these fantastic quotes I’ve collected to remember him  #ALWAYS.

“You are here to learn the subtle science and exact art of potion-making. As there is little foolish wand-waving here, many of you will hardly believe this is magic. I don’t expect you will really understand the beauty of the softly simmering cauldron with its shimmering fumes, the delicate power of liquids that creep through human veins, bewitching the mind, ensnaring the senses… I can teach you how to bottle fame, brew glory, even put a stopper in death — if you aren’t as big a bunch of dunderheads as I usually have to teach.” – Severus Snape

“That is the second time you have spoken out of turn, Miss Granger. Five more points from Gryffindor for being an insufferable know-it-all.” – Severus Snape

“The whole class looked around at Harry, who hastily tried to recall what Dumbledore had told him the night that they had gone to visit Slughorn. ‘Er — well — ghosts are transparent —’ he said. “Yes, it is easy to see that nearly six years of magical education have not been wasted on you, Potter. ‘Ghosts are transparent.'” – Severus Snape to Harry Potter

“I have no idea. Potter, when I want nonsense shouted at me I shall give you a Babbling Beverage. And Crabbe, loosen your hold a little, if Longbottom suffocates it will mean a lot of tedious paperwork, and I am afraid I shall have to mention it on you reference if ever you apply for a job.” – Severus Snape

“Turn to page 394.” – Severus Snape

Harry Potter: “Maybe he’s left, because he missed out on the Defence Against the Dark Arts job again!”
Ron Weasley : “Or he might have been sacked! I mean, everyone hates him —”
Snape: “Or maybe he’s waiting to hear why you two didn’t arrive on the school train.”

“Thoughts are not etched on the inside of skulls, to be perused by any invader. The mind is a complex and many-layered thing… It is true, however, that those who have mastered Legilimency are able, under certain conditions, to delve into the minds of their victims and to interpret their findings correctly.” – Severus Snape

“Possibly no one’s warned you, Lupin, but this class contains Neville Longbottom. I would advise you not to entrust him with anything difficult. Not unless Miss Granger is hissing instructions in his ear.” – Severus Snape

Albus Dumbledore: “I prefer not to put all my secrets in one basket, particularly not a basket that spends so much time dangling on the arm of Lord Voldemort.”
Snape: “Which I do on your orders!”
Albus Dumbledore: “And you do it extremely well. Do not think that I underestimate the constant danger in which you place yourself, Severus. To give Voldemort what appears to be valuable information while withholding the essentials is a job I would entrust to nobody but you.”

“Severus Snape wasn’t yours, Snape was Dumbledore’s, Dumbledore’s from the moment you started hunting down my mother! […] He was Dumbledore’s spy from the moment you threatened her, and he’s been working against you ever since! Dumbledore was already dying when Snape finished him!” – Harry Potter to Voldemort

“Fools who wear their hearts proudly on their sleeves, who cannot control their emotions, who wallow in sad memories and allow themselves to be provoked this easily — weak people, in other words — they stand no chance against his powers! He will penetrate your mind with absurd ease!” – Severus Snape

“One of them was a Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew.” – Harry Potter to his son, Albus Severus Potter regarding Snape

“Look… at… me….” – Snape to Harry Potter, his last words. *CRYING*

Dumbledore:”After all this time, Severus?”

Snape: “Always”
