Luna Lovegood Quotes from the Harry Potter Books

This sayings, Luna Lovegood quotes and sentiments page presents my favorite quips all from the lovable and very eccentric Harry Potter witch herself. The main thing I love about this character is her fashion sense because it really rocks!

You may not know but the very first mention of the Lovegoods is written long before they ever appear into Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, which is book 4 in the series. This mentions that "the Lovegoods have been there for a week already" and it relates to the Quidditch World Cup which is on at the time.

Luna who has a very unfortunate nickname "Loony" appears in the Harry Potter books 5 through to 7. Despite the odd nickname, she became a very strong and inspiring member of Dumbledore's Army.

Luna is just so amazingly individual in her choice of non-school attire. No surprise then that quotes from her and made by her are also very unique.

If you're a Potter fan like me, you might want to apply some of the sayings and quotes from this favorite witch to your Halloween crafting and especially if you are dressing up as Luna in costume.
"The girl beside the window looked up. She had straggly, waist-length, dirty blonde hair, very pale eyebrows and protuberant eyes that gave her a permanently surprised look."

Quotes from Book 5: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

"Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure," said Luna in a singsong voice.

"She doesn't think you treated her very well, because you wouldn't dance with her. I don't think I'd have minded," she added thoughtfully, "I don't like dancing very much." - to Ron

"Don't worry. You're just as sane as I am." - to Harry

"... people used to believe there were no such things as the Blibbering Humdinger or the Crumple-Horned Snorkack!"

"... he's got an army of Heliopaths." - about Cornelius Fudge

"Mistletoe," said Luna dreamily, pointing at a large clump of white berries placed almost over Harry's head. He jumped out from under it. "Good thinking," said Luna very seriously. "It's often infested with Nargles."

"... we're going to go on an expedition this summer to see if we can catch a Crumple-Horned Snorkack."

"Well, I've lost most of my possessions," said Luna serenely, "People take them and hide them, you know. But as it's the last night, I really do need them back, so I've been putting up signs."

"She was quite an extraordinary witch, you know, but she did like to experiment and one of her spells went rather badly wrong one day. I was nine." - about her mother.

"No, I think I'll just go down and have some pudding and wait for it all to turn up it always does in the end."

About Luna's Spectrespecs (Spectra Specs)

Funnily enough, the thing that most people seem to remember about Luna are her amazing Spectrespecs glasses. In the movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, it is the Spectrespecs which enable her to discover Harry who is hurt and invisible.

However, that scene never even happens in the original book because it was actually Tonks who found Harry. Of course, anybody who's seen Harry Potter will know immediately who you're dressing up as if you wear these funky glasses!

"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 safe-keeping, or that she had chosen to wear a necklace of Butterbeer corks, or that she was reading a magazine upsidedown." Order of the Phoenix

Quotes from Book 6: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

"People expect you to have cooler friends than us," said Luna, once again displaying her knack for embarrassing honesty.

"I enjoyed the meetings too," said Luna serenely. "It was like having friends."

"A Wrackspurt ... They're invisible. They float in through your ears and make your brain go fuzzy," she said.

"Did you know one of your eyebrows is bright yellow?"

"I thought at first it was moaning Myrtle in there, but it turned out to be Hermione. She said something about Ron Weasley ..."

"He says funny things sometimes, doesn't he? ... But he can be a bit unkind. I noticed that last year." - about Ron

"Nobody's ever asked me to a party before, as a friend! Is that why you dyed your eyebrow, for the party? Should I dye mine too?"

"Yes, he's a vampire." - on Rufus Scrimgeour

"The Aurors are part of the Rotfang Conspiracy, I thought everyone knew that. They're planning to bring down the Ministry of Magic from within using a combination of Dark Magic and gum disease."

"You're making fun of me, aren't you?" she said. "Everyone says I was dreadful."

I sleepwalk, you see. That's why I wear shoes to bed. Quotation by Luna Lovegood

Quotes from Book 7: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

"Ron can laugh," said Luna serenely as Harry led her and Xenophilius toward their seats, "but my father has done a lot of research on Gernumbli magic."

"I told Daddy most people would probably wear dress robes, but he believes you ought to wear sun colors to a wedding, for luck, you know."

"Thank you so much Dobby for rescuing me from that cellar. It's so unfair that you had to dies when you were so good and brave. I'll always remember what you did for us. I hope you're happy now."

"No, it was definitely a Snorkack horn," said Luna serenely, "Daddy told me. It will probably have reformed by now, they mend themselves, you know."

"Yes, he's trying to re-create the lost diadem of Ravenclaw. He thinks he's identified most of the main elements now. Adding the billywig wings really made a difference -" on Xenophilius Lovegood

"Of course that's what it means," said Luna brightly. "Isn't it, Harry? We're going to fight them out of Hogwarts?"

"Well, there's her lost diadem. I told you about it, remember Harry? The lost diadem of Ravenclaw? Daddy's trying to duplicate it."

"I'd want some peace and quiet, if it were me," she said.

Obviously I'm not going to give you all of Luna's quotes because that would be plain wrong and not fair on the author, J. K. Rowling. If you want to read more, then you need to read the actual books.

I really and truly recommend reading (and re-reading) the books over the movie versions. The movies are fun, some are a lot better than others, but they just don't tell the whole story.

"She's great, isn't she?" said Ron admiringly. Always good value." - Deathly Hallows
